AUBURN — The Auburn-Lewiston YMCA has announced that registration for the 2010 youth field hockey program is underway. The program will again take place at the Auburn Middle School, and will run for six weeks.

The program is for girls entering kindergarten through the eighth grade. The Pee Wee Division, kindergarten to grade two, will meet from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. Wednesdays, Sept. 8 to Oct. 13.

The Junior Division, grades three to four, and the Intermediate Division, grades five to eight, will also meet from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. Wednesdays.
