We invite you to our 4th annual Dirty Water Tournament being held on Saturday and Sunday, July 6-7, 2019 in Boston. This is a small and intimate tournament for 6-8 coed teams in total. The idea is to get to know our fellow field hockey community, but maintain a competitive edge on the field. Please share and forward along to field hockey friends!
TEAM FEE: $1200 total TEAM FEE BREAKDOWN: $500 deposit via website (see below) & a $700 check before the 1st game payable to: North East Premier PLAYER ELIGIBILITY: Must be non-NCAA eligible to avoid any violations with current coaching staff.
LOCATION: Boston, MA area (field: Boston University - New Balance) SCHEDULE: TBD COED: Up to (5) five men on the field. Goalies are gender neutral and do not count in that tally. ROSTER: Up to 20 players, cannot interchange between other registered teams (even same club) SOCIAL SATURDAY NIGHT: Location TBD. Appetizers will be served.
COMMUNITY EXCHANGE: We started a tradition of exchanging field hockey related (used or new) apparel among the tournament teams. Not only does this promote camaraderie in our field hockey community, but whoever brought something ended the tournament with a memento from another club from another part of the country. We were inspired by the tradition of professional soccer players exchanging jerseys after their games during the World Cup.
