The Summer Bash at the Beach will feature U-10 Co-Ed, U-12 Co-Ed, U-14 Girls and U-19 Boys divisions. All divisions will still be run in a 7v7 competitive pool format in which scores will be kept and pool champions will receive awards.

Co-Ed teams will not be able to play more than three male players (goalkeepers excluded) at any given time during a game. The U-19 Boys division will feature both club and individual based registration and will run a 5v5 tournament format at a minimum if the proper amount of teams and individuals are met. Should there not be enough boys to facilitate a 5v5 tournament, the division will be cancelled. To register as an individual, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pools will be seeded by in accordance to our team rating system. All teams will submit team ratings based on an honest assessment of their team's skill and the average years of experience their team collectively has playing field hockey during registration so that the USA Field Hockey National Office can create pools based on like ratings for a fun, competitive, experience! A rerating period will be established at a later date so that clubs can adjust rating if necessary.
