COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - February 28, 2018 - USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row there will be dual Summer Bash Series sites, presented by 4U Sports. In addition to the 2018 Summer Bash at the Beach event at the Regional Training Center in Virginia Beach, Va., there will be a Summer Bash Northeast which will take place June 30 to July 1 at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell in Lowell, Mass. This event will be replacing the previous year's Summer Bash in New England that was hosted at Brown University. All 2018 Summer Bash Series events will feature 7v7 play on both water-based and dry field turf surfaces and are open to U-10 Co-Ed, U-12 Co-Ed and U-14 Girls divisions. Announcements around boy's age division offerings will be announced closer to the registration opening date.
“We are excited to be working with UMass Lowell to bring back a 2018 Summer Bash Series location to the Northeast region,” said Justin Miller, USA Field Hockey’s Events and Club Services Manager. “Small sided play is integral to growing our game and we firmly believe that our Summer Bash Series events achieve that by bringing events run by the National Office closer to the backyards of our clubs in the summer time.”
Registration for the 2018 Summer Bash Series, presented by 4U Sports, events, which includes both the Summer Bash at the Beach and Summer Bash Northeast, will open on Friday, March 16, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
