2024 PAL Fall Girls Field Hockey

This fall we are excited to have our fall field hockey league for girls entering grades 2-8. The goal of this league is to grow the youth program, love the game, and promote teamwork and good sportsmanship.

Grades 2-4

The 2-4 girls will be introduced to the game, positions, rules, learn how to move on and off the ball, and build game sense. Each week the girls will participate in one practice and one 7v7 game (4 home and 4 away) each week. This is a fantastic opportunity not only for our youth, but to build and advance the WHS program! We are also in need of coaches, if you are interested in helping for this level, please reach out to Corinne Varhley at [email protected]

Grades 5-6 and 7-8

The 5-8 girls will also apply their prior field hockey skills in game-like situations, learn how to move on and off the ball, and build game sense. Each week the girls will participate in one practice and one game (4 home and 4 away). This is a fantastic opportunity not only for our youth, but to build and advance the WHS program! We will have 2 combined 7/8 teams this season (specific team requests will not be accepted). We are also in need of coaches, if you are interested in helping any of these levels, please reach out to Corinne Varhley at [email protected]


IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ALL REGISTERING FAMILIES!

As the success of the Westfield PAL youth athletic programs has continued to grow over the past several years, the need for volunteer help has continued to increase. Going forward, we are asking all participating families to play a small role in helping out our volunteer coaches, staff and directors. 

As a condition of your child's registration with the PAL, at least one parent or guardian for each participating family (who isn't on the coaching staff) may be asked to assist during practices, games or match days at some point during the season. These non-coach volunteers will be part of a support pool managed by a team parent with volunteer schedules set at the beginning of the year.

Assuming full participation, we don't believe this will be a huge ask, especially considering our coaches and directors will be putting in countless hours of work on a weekly basis. If there are days you are unavailable to volunteer or have a special circumstance that prevents you from volunteering, please note this in the Team Staff section and we will try and accommodate your situation.

For field hockey this includes: Assisting with practice, helping the sideline on game days, helping the goalies get their equipment on, time clock, fundraising, and end of the season celebrations. If you are interested in being an administrative team parent or coach, please note that in the Team Staff section of registration.

ABOUT THE LEAGUE
 
Now let's dive into the electrifying world of the Westfield PAL Flag Football Co-Ed program and discover a game experience like never before! Since 1998, we've been igniting the flame of football passion in kids from 1st to 9th grade and this year we will be adding a new division to include 10th-12th graders. Due to the popularity of the program the Westfield PAL Co-Ed Flag Football program is ONLY open to Westfield residents, those attending school in Westfield, or others who have played with us for 2 or more years.
 
But it's not just about the game; it's about fostering enduring friendships, learning the ins and outs of football, and embracing sportsmanship like true champions. Our program isn't just about touchdowns and flag pulls; it's about the laughter, the camaraderie, and the memories that last a lifetime. Join us and discover the excitement of the Westfield PAL Flag Football Co-Ed program - where every moment is a touchdown of fun!

With that said, the "traditional" flag football program will continue to be coed and welcomes both boys and girls; girls are free to choose which league they wish to play in and 2nd-6th grader girls are welcome to play in both leagues if they're up for a morning of flag filled action! NOTE: Girls Flag Football requires a separate sign-up!

2024 Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football




Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football

Our Mission 

Our mission is to empower girls to work together as a team in a fun and safe (non-contact) environment while developing a love of flag football. Our league supports positive values and promotes health, wellness, and self-esteem to inspire and motivate girls to succeed both on and off the field.

We are looking to grow Girls Flag Football in Westfield, provide athletic gear, training for coaches and team building activities. Our league also promotes personal health and continues to enhance the program and overall experience. In recognition of our important role in the community, we will be partnering with local charities that share our mission.

League History

The Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football League rang in our Inaugural Season in September 2022, and had an even more successful 2023 Fall Season with more than 300 girls participating. We are now gearing up for the 2024 Fall Season. We are among the first girls flag football programs in NJ and excited to bring this sport to our town. Interest in girls flag football is exploding worldwide, and it is now an official Olympic sport for 2028. Nike and the NY Jets are sponsoring Girls High School Flag Football throughout NY and NJ, and in the Spring of 2024, Westfield High School Girls will be playing its second season in the Big Central Conference!

Volunteer, Donation and Sponsorship Opportunities
We have big plans and ideas for the upcoming Westfield PAL Girls Flag Football season and beyond, which can only be achieved through community support and involvement. Parent volunteers and coaches are the backbone of any youth sports program, and we are looking for moms, dads, and teens to volunteer their time to help make the program a huge success. We would like to have at least one female coach on every team. 

To further support our mission and enhance the program, we are seeking donations and sponsorships. If interested in volunteer, donation and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kelly Hantman at [email protected]
