SPRING/SUMMER 2017 DETAILS
 

The spring season is the primary season for outdoor hockey.  Each team will participate in practices twice a week and conditioning once a week.  All players are invited to join the Rapids - whether a returning Rapids player or players new to travel hockey.  New players will participate as an initial tryout.  Returning Rapids players will participate as en evaluation.

 

TRYOUTS

Take your game to the next level by becoming a Rapids Field Hockey travel team player!  Registration is required along with a $30 evaluation fee and it will be credited to your spring travel registration.  Potential players are permitted and encouraged to attend both evaluations dates (no additional fee for participation on both tryout dates). Returning Rapids are guaranteed a spot but must come for assessment and squad placement.
