High school field hockey is played 11 on 11, but due to COVID-19 rule changes, the MIAA has changed that to 7 on 7 on a full field. Meanwhile, high school soccer (an equal risk sport) is still allowed to play as 11 on 11. COVID-19 regulations and precautions are understandable and necessary during this time. However, why is it OK for one sport to continue to play 11 on 11, while another sport is reduced to 7 on 7? This rule changes the entire game and lacks equity between sports.

Please sign this petition if you believe field hockey should be allowed to play with the same amount of players as soccer this fall. This petition will be given to the MIAA in time for their field hockey committee meeting on September 15.

High school athletes who are signing, please add a comment with your school name/town. I am a captain for Woburn Memorial High School field hockey.
