Field Hockey  plays in A, B and C divisions depending on the number of teams in the league.  Occasionally sub-divisions may be created for more parity.

Field Hockey players must wear BSSC jerseys. They are included in your team fee.  The color will be assigned by the program manager. They are $6 each, and you will be invoiced for any above the allotted amount listed below.

Things to know

Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of cleats can I wear?

Because we play on all artificial turf fields, we do not allow the use of metal spikes (aka “soft ground” cleats).  All “firm ground,” turf cleats, indoor soccer shoes and running shoes are acceptable and appropriate options.

What if the weather is bad – When will you cancel my game?

You should always be ready to play! Cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, the risk of lightning, and/or an edict of the permitting authority – not whether it is raining or snowing. We use a lot of turf or synthetic grass fields, so games are rarely cancelled. In general, Softball & Kickball games are not cancelled until fields become “unplayable”. In winter, snow may dictate cancellations due to school closings, un-plowed parking lots, or if overall conditions become problematic.

Because conditions & weather can change quickly in New England, we make updates as necessary (24/7). We suggest you check before heading out to your league. Cancellations are posted in the following manner:

What if I don’t have a team?

BSSC specializes in putting individuals together for teams. We will place you on a team of players who have all signed up individually or find you an existing team. Be sure to complete registration with payment. If we place you on an existing team, your fees will be refunded and you’ll pay the captain directly.

I played in school – Will I find BSSC leagues competitive?

BSSC offers all levels of competition. For most sports, multiple levels are available within the same league. Advanced to low intermediate divisions are often specified for popular leagues like Soccer, Softball, Football, and Volleyball. Speak with the BSSC program manager about your sport for help finding the best match for your skills and experience.

Do I need to bring my own equipment for sports leagues?

BSSC provides game balls and basics to play each sport (bases, hoops, nets, cones, and more). Softball bats, sticks (hockey and lacrosse), appropriate protective gear (shin guards, mouth guards, eye goggles, and goalie gear) and basic first aid supplies (bandaids, sports tape, ice packs) are each player’s responsibility. Check your sport rules for more specifics.

What are the sign-up deadlines for sports?

All BSSC leagues and clinics are first-come/first-serve. Teams in existing leagues are given until one month prior to commit to returning to play the next session before we accept new teams. Some leagues sell out 5-6 weeks in advance, so we recommend that teams and individuals register as soon as you know you can play. On the other hand, there might be space as late as the league’s start date, so give us a call.
