BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights PAL has opened registration for Fall 5/6 and 7/8 travel field hockey teams, as well as a second through fourth grade Fall clinic and a Summer clinic for current second through eighth graders.   Visit the PAL website, www.bhpal.org, to register. Please indicate if you need to borrow a stick.

The PAL Field Hockey program just held a Spring clinic in April.  Along with many GL field hockey players, the clinic was run by Coach DeLauro, the GL Head field hockey coach.  Coach DeLauro is excited about the addition of a youth field hockey program. "Our varsity team is coming off of the best season in GL history," said DeLauro. "It can't be overstated how important a Berkeley Heights/Mountainside youth field hockey program would be to our high school program. If student-athletes arrived at GL with knowledge of fundamentals and an understanding of the game, it would allow the coaching staff to teach more advanced skills earlier on in the girls' field hockey careers. We are so excited that 80 young players attended the Fall and Spring clinics."

Fall travel registration for the 2018-19 5th/6th team and 7th/8th-grade team will close on July 9th, so register today. Multi-sport athletes welcome. The program is flexible with practice schedules/attendance so the girls have an opportunity to do multiple activities.  It is an instructional league with a focus on learning and fun — no tryouts or A/B team pressure — and it is a great opportunity for girls to start a new sport.
