Below is 2014 Jamboree information **November 9 or 10 for 7/8 Grades**
****************************** Check the scrolling calendar for locations and time. The Jamborees are an exciting weekend of competitive field hockey
Each team is assigned a location and will compete in a double elimination bracket. What that means: your team continues to play until they lose two games. Please come prepared for a full day of play -Extra water, snacks, extra clothes (to stay warm while not playing)
All games will have a winner- no ties
7/8th grade sites will have an extra goal cage off the fields to finish any tie breakers with 5 players per team strokes.
Teams alternate strokers 1-5.
If still tied, sudden death strokes.
Players can use same 5 strokers or change strokers and change order of strokers. If the next game cannot be played until a stroke winner is had the strokes can take place on the field.
Strokes can be officiated by a site director if necessary to keep refs on playing fields.
As always coaches, players and parents are expected to be respectful to all town hosts, opponents and referees.
Removal from field will take place if necessary.
All parents need to sit on the opposite side of the field from the players if the field dictates.
Coaches coach, parents cheer.
NO DOGS ALLOWED.
No misconduct or unsportsmanlike conduct will be tolerated by coaches, players or parents.
Jamboree t-shirts will be sold at all sites for $15 per shirt
