Oley Valley Field Hockey

For over 30 years the OVYL Field Hockey Program has flourished as a recreational league focused on the fundamentals of the game, skill development, teamwork and FUN! Our program is open for girls entering 1st through 6th grade and are divided into 3 age divisions: Lil’ Lynx (1st and 2nd grade); Junior (3rd &4th grade); & Senior (5th & 6th grade).

2024 Program Information

  • Coaches: OVYL coaches are all volunteers.  Typically, the OVHS Field Hockey team assists in the first week or two of practice to introduce fundamental skills to players and coaches.  Coaches are provided skills checklist, practice plans, and links to sport specific information. Coaches meeting (MANDATORY for anyone interested in coaching this fall) is  WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7TH at 6:15pm the HS turf.

  • Team Assignment:  Players are evaluated (if possible) and placed on fair/comparable teams.  Teams usually consist of 7-9 players, although team size is dependent upon overall registration numbers. Lil’ Lynx are not evaluated; however, attempt is made to place on comparably skilled teams. Evaluations for grades 3-6 will be held on Sunday, June 2, 2024 at 5pm. We will be on the lower grass area where our fields were last year (between 8U/10U softball and rookies field).
  • Practices: Practice will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting Tuesday, August 13 2024 at the OVYL.  Practice starts at 6:00 pm; please be prompt.  Practice ends at 7:30 pm the first few weeks, it will end earlier as the days get shorter and school begins. 
  • Games:  Games will also be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  We play mostly intra-league games during the week; occasionally, we will schedule a game(s) with a local youth program. Juniors and Seniors play 6 v 6. Lil' Lynx play 5 v 5.
