On Mar. 14, the Scotch Plains-Fanwood field hockey program held an interest meeting in room C-102 for prospective players and their parents. The meeting was run by several members of SPF’s field hockey program, including Bethany Pisulak, the prospective girls field hockey coach.
“I knew that this was a team that I wanted to push and try to get myself on.” said Pisulak.
Although a junior varsity team has been approved for the fall, SPF Field Hockey has a long way to got until they can play on the field.
One of the most pressing issues is that the program needs to raise $17,000 by June 1st, or else they cannot play for the fall season. Regardless of the amount of money raised, SPF Field Hockey will be a pay-to-play sport. The money will cover things like equipment and insurance. An extensive sheet was passed out during the meeting, detailing the amount each player would have to pay depending on how much money is raised and how many girls are interested in playing.
It was not too long ago that the high school did have a field hockey team. Due to low participation however, it became defunct in 1990.
In an effort to raise the $17,000 by June. 1st, the SPF field hockey program has several fundraisers ligned up.

  • Amazon Smile
  • Golfing Outing at Ash Brook Golf Course on May 9th

For now, Pisulak is training her prospective team for the fall sports season.
“Now that we have collected data on who wants to participate, we’re going to start having practices right after spring break on Fridays from about 4:30 or 4:15 for about an hour.” said Pisulak
