Here are some frequently asked questions and the answers:
What is the difference between Club and Association?
See the Fall Season page.
Will I have to attend tryouts?
There are no tryouts for Club. Upon receipt of completed registration information, Club players will be assigned a team.
There are no tryouts for Association level play either. However, there are "selections" for determining the "Washington 1" and "Washington 2" teams. The selections dates are listed in the Fall Newsletter. If you have questions about selections, you can contact the Selections Chair.
Where can I buy a stick?
Many local sports stores carry field hockey sticks. However, you can also order them online. For more information on field hockey sticks, visit the United State Field Hockey Association's Selecting a Field Hockey Stick page. We have included links to retailers on our Links page.
Do we have uniforms?
Club players are provided a tank top to wear each week. Association players are required to purchase a uniform since they participate in tournaments. See our most recent Fall Newsletter (2008) for information on the cost of the uniform.
How much does it cost to play?
In the fall, dues range from $50-$65 and includes a one-year membership to the WFHA. The Fall Newsletter has specific information.
There are separate fees for indoor, spring and summer play from $40-$100. Contact the Chairpersons for those leagues from our Contact Us page for more information.
