Tryouts like practices are closed to players only. Our season will begin immediately following tryouts and last through Mid-October/Early-November depending on post season play. TJFH is a cohesive program where the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams often work together. All pre-season information and tryout information will be posted to the Varsity page and applies to both JV and Varsity. Some Junior Varsity players may be asked to move up to Varsity during the post-season.
ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE A VALID SPORTS PASS PRIOR TO AUGUST 1ST TO BE ELIGIBLE TO TRYOUT. Players without a pass will be unable to participate in anyway until a pass is obtained from the Athletic Training Office. Contact Heather Murphy for more information on how to obtain your pass.

Q: When are tryouts? Am I required to attend all of tryouts?
A: Tryouts are August 1st - August 4th. Yes freshman players are required to attend all of tryouts.
Q: My parents and I didn't know that fall sports begin before school and I will be out of town at some point during August. Could I still tryout?
A: Yes. If this is the case please email Coach Aubrey at aubreylear13 [at] gmail.com immediately to discuss. Please note however that this is an exception for Freshman only. Returning players are aware of the program policies and should not miss time during the season. Missed time can effect team placement.
Q: I've never played before is that okay?
A: Absolutely! No playing experience is necessary.
Q: I don't have any gear, can I still attend green days/workouts/tryouts?
A: Yes. Players will not be required to purchase gear until after tryouts. Coaches will have sticks and other equipment available for use.
Q: I think I might be interested in playing goalie. What type of equipment do I need?
A: In short, just a mouth guard. Goaltenders have specialized and expensive equipment all of which (except the mouthguard) is provided by the school. Goalies are allowed to buy or use their own as long as it meets VHSL and USA Field Hockey regulations.
Q: What's being on the field hockey team like?
A: Amazing! Many freshman love playing field hockey because they get to make new friends and connect with their school prior to the start of classes. Practices and games will be challenging but being a part of the TJ Field Hockey program is incredibly rewarding.
