Welcome to the RTMS Jaguars Field Hockey page!
Tryouts for the 23-24 Jaguars Field Hockey team will begin on Monday, August 14, 2023. Girls in grades 6, 7, and 8 may try out for the team. Prior experience is not required. All athletes must have an up-to-date VHSL physical (dated May 1, 2023 or later) on file with the school in order to participate in tryouts for any 2023-2024 RTMS sports team.
Athletes must bring the following in order to try out:
Mouthguard (CANNOT PLAY WITHOUT THIS!!!)
Shin guards - must be field hockey shin guards; soccer shin guards do not offer enough protection
Weather-appropriate athletic clothing
Cleats if you have them or good athletic sneakers (not slip ons, Converse, etc.); I recommend waiting until the team has been selected before investing in a pair of cleats. If you already have cleats, please also bring sneakers in case the weather forces us to move tryouts indoors.
Water bottle (16oz or larger) - It can get very hot in the afternoons and we run a lot! We do not have a water fountain or water coolers down on the field.
A hair tie to keep long hair off the face.
Field hockey stick (if you already have one); we have sticks available to borrow if you do not have your own. If you have never played before, I recommend borrowing a stick until the team is selected and you are sure that you will continue to play.
Goggles are optional but strongly recommended for safety. Again, hold off on purchasing until the team has been selected. If worn, goggles must be permanently labeled with the ASTM 2713 standard for field hockey.
Please contact Coach Quail at email@example.com with any questions.
