On 10/24 the group (pictured in costumes) that volunteered included Essex Tech’s field hockey players, which also includes students from Georgetown.
Additionally, we have the Pentucket field hockey team assisting with our youth practices.On average, we have anywhere from 4 to 12 players at a time who come to help. It’s different groupings every week – ET takes Tuesdays, and Pentucket takes Thursdays.
We have an hour and a half practice each night with over 90 youth players there – we have 6 teams spanning grades 1 to 8.
We started the first week in September and end the first week of November, so in total we have about 40 hours of practice time, but most kids don’t come every week; they take turns, ensuring we have at least a handful at every practice.
Additional pictures inlcude both the Pentucket HS FH team and the Essex Tech/Georgetown HS FH teams working with Georgetown/Pentucket Youth FH program.
There’s also pictures from both “Youth night” games where the youth kids went to the Varsity game as ball girls and got pictures signed by the team after the game.
