This program is split into four different groups:

  • Kindergarten through 2nd Grade: This group is ran as a clinic where we focus on the participants learning the basic fundamentals and skills of the game. This groups does not have set teams and does not play games. We usually split this group into two groups (a more experienced group/a more novice group) depending on the number of participants signed up. This group does not have weekday practices. They practice on Saturday mornings at Westfield Academy and Central School.
  • 3rd through 6th Grades' Girls: This group practices once a week (evenings sometime Monday-Thursday) and plays games on Saturday afternoons at local schools (Brocton, Ripley and Westfield Schools). *We hope to be able to split this group into separate 3rd & 4th and 5th & 6th grades' groups in the future.
  • 3rd & 4th Grades' Boys: This group practices once a week (evenings sometime Monday-Thursday) and plays games on Saturday afternoons at local schools (Brocton, Ripley and Westfield Schools).
  • 5th & 6th Grades' Boys: This group practices once a week (evenings sometime Monday-Thursday) and plays games on Saturday afternoons at local schools (Brocton, Ripley and Westfield Schools).

 

Practices are held at Eason Hall, Westfield Academy & Central School and the YWCA of Westfield.
