Indoor Field Hockey

Registration for the 2024-2025 season will open September 1! 

Did you know BAYS offers indoor field hockey for our 5th-12th grade athletes?  2024-2025 represents our 4th official season!  (For club-level teams, please check out the BAYS Field Hockey Club page)

Indoor Field Hockey Overview:   Indoor and outdoor field hockey are similar. The indoor game is faster and requires more control because it is played on a smaller, hard, flat court surface. Indoor improves player’s stick skills and field vision. 

A few indoor hockey details:

  • Sidelines are replaced with sideboards (“boards”). There is no sideline out of bounds, unless the ball jumps the boards, and the ball rebounds quickly off the boards in play. 
  • Six players are allowed on the court at one time – that’s five field players and one goalkeeper compared to the 11 in outdoor. Instead of the typical forward, midfield, defense, positions are divided into two categories: Attackers and Defenders. Although there are specific roles, everyone must play defense, just like outdoor.
  • Players are not not allowed to lift or hit the ball outside of the circle in indoor. Players are only allowed to push, pass, deflect, or dribble the ball. 

Practices: All practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays at Pip Moyer Rec Center in Annapolis, MD.  Each athlete should have the following at each practice: indoor stick, shinguards, mouthguard, water bottle, and BAYS reversible practice pinnie.  Goalies will be provided gear.

Uniforms:  All athletes are required to have a full BAYS uniform kit, which is $90.  New athletes will be issued a roster number by BAYS after registration.

Teams:  BAYS fields both middle school and high school teams.

Games:  BAYS competes in the Howard County Indoor FH league. Games are Sundays at Meadowbrook Athletic Complex at 5001 Meadowbrook Ln, Ellicott City, MD.  Each Sunday, teams will each compete in two 25 minute games.    

2023 SPRING SKILLS & SCRIMMAGES CLINIC

Registration is CLOSED for the 2023 Spring Skills & Scrimmages Clinic!

Beginning in April, BAYS will present the Spring Skills & Scrimmages Clinics. Each Saturday, registered athletes will work on improving their skills through a series of drill stations, engage in conditioning activities that they can carry through the summer, and participate in scrimmage-style competition.  In order to participate, each athlete must have a stick, mouthguard, shinguards, and a water bottle.  Please bring your BAYS reversible practice pinnie, or reach out to Stacie if you don't already have one.

Registration remains open until April 7 for all athletes - sticklettes through juniors.

BAYS is seeking volunteers to support this activity.  If you would like to support, please register as a coach!

VOLUNTEER CHECKLIST

Volunteering is a great way to make a positive impact in the community! Not only is it fun, but you get to spend more time outside, meet new people, and help build a strong, positive, safe, and rewarding environment for kids. BAYS is always looking for coaches and other volunteers to keep recreational youth sports thriving. If you are interested, please complete the following:

1. Register on our website as a Head Coach or Assistant Coach.

2. Complete a county background check at: AACO Rec & Parks Background Check (good for 3 years)

Volunteered in the past? Check the Active Volunteer Database to see if your background check is still current and when you last attended the coaches certification clinic.
