Field Hockey


Select Team:

Overview

The field hockey program at Bement is designed for beginning to more advanced players. Currently, we have one team with an emphasis on teaching basic skills to new players while helping more advanced players learn new techniques. Position play is emphasized as players learn how to be effective on the field in game play in a variety of positions. Often the older players act as mentors to new players, helping them learn the basic skills. This helps not only in skill development but also coming together as a team. We compete against other middle school teams as well as reserve teams from local private schools. A highlight of our season is the Bement Field Hockey Jamboree which includes 12 middle school teams from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont and has been held at Bement for more than 40 years.
