U12 & u14 MUST REGISTER, but they DO NOT TRY OUT.  They are automatically ON the team!!  
We usually continue to accept u12 & u14 registrations as we move into the season.  

We are still accepting GK registrations in ALL AGE GROUPS.  

Answers to many questions can be found at www.MEFH.Club or you can email the Director, Jess Brox, at:  maine.elite.fh@gmail.com!!  

Our travel teams are divided based on the National USFHA age groups.  The "u" in each stands for "under"....  and the breakpoint is December 31st / January 1st.  That means that the athlete's birth year is what determines their age group for the coming season/year, NOT their school grade.  The cutoff means that your age as of December 31st is what determines your age group for the following year.  For example, a girl who turns 14 on December 31st will try out for one of the u16 teams.  If her friend turns 14 on January 1st (just the day after), she will join the u14 team.  It's always unfortunate for those with birthdays just before the cutoff, but that is the case each year.  This cutoff is determined by US Field Hockey.  MEFH Club boasts a minimum of 8 teams across the age groups, and has plans to add u10 to the Club, so literally has something for everyone!!  

Our youngest ages (u10, u12 and u14) DO NOT TRY OUT.  All the girls who want to play are invited to be on the team!!  HOWEVER, WE ASK THAT YOU REGISTER, SO WE KNOW HOW MANY PLAYERS TO EXPECT & CAN STAFF APPROPRIATELY.  ALL player age groups must pay the registration fee.  

The u16 and u19 girls MUST attend the tryout, unless it is absolutely impossible for them to attend.  Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  However, if you do not attend the tryout, we can not guarantee anything.  

When filling out the registration for 2017 season, this should help you select your age group....  
2007 & younger - u10

2017 MEFH Club Travel Team - Spring



                                                                                                                                                                        

2017 indoor season:  

ME Elite Field Hockey Club's (MEFH, formerly Katahdin) travel team is thrilled to announce that our "home base" will remain at the UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MAINE's (USM Gorham) Field House.  The facility offers an indoor floor, which is the type of surface used at National USFHA Events.  MEFH made the transition to a floor for indoor practices in the January 2015 indoor season.  This move was literally game-changing for the Club, which competes almost exclusively on indoor surfaces & astro turf throughout the season.  This step up elevated the level of play for the Club and provide a great advantage for our athletes to develop their skills.  

The Topsham Dome was a good location, as the USM Field House wan't available to us.  After just the first season on  the correct surface, we saw tremendous results & look forward to the future!!
