Our Philosophy

The Bordentown Field Hockey League Philosophy is not just another sports program.

1. Everyone Plays. We do not use tryouts to select the best players, nor do we cut kids from The Bordentown Field Hockey League. Everyone who registers is assigned to a team. During the season everyone receives equal practice time and equal playing time.

2. Safety First. Although kids may get hurt playing sports, we do all we can to prevent injuries. Coaches make sure the equipment and facilities are safe, and they teach the sport as we’ve prescribed so that the skills taught are appropriate for athletes’ developmental levels. And coaches constantly supervise their players and stop any unsafe activities.

3. Fair Play. Fair play is about playing by the rules- and more. It’s about coaches and players showing respect for all involved in The Bordentown Field Hockey League. It’s about coaches being role models of good sporting behavior and guiding their players to do the same.

4. Positive Competition. We believe competition is a positive process when the pursuit of victory is kept in the right perspective. The right perspective is when adults make decisions that put the best interests of the players before winning the contest. Learning to compete is important for youngsters, and learning to cooperate in a competitive world is an essential lesson of life. Through the Bordentown Field Hockey Leagues we want to help kids learn these lessons.

5. Family Involvement. The Bordentown Field Hockey League encourages parents to be involved appropriately in their child’s participation in our sports programs. In addition to parents being helpful as volunteer coaches, committee members, and potential timekeepers, we encourage them to be at practices and games to support their child’s participation.

6. Sport for Fun. Sports are naturally fun for most kids. Sometimes when adults become involved in children’s sporting activities they over organize and dominate the activities to the point that it destroys kids’ enjoyment of them. If we take the fun out of sports for young athletes, we are in danger of the young athletes taking themselves out of sports.
