Review: While I'm only an occasional player these days I started my 8 year old son at the Executive Indoor Field at the Hampshire Mall in Hadley three years ago. While the sport itself tends to be pretty open ended and wild( I'm the overprotective safety conscious parent whos kids drive off road vehicles and shoot real guns) I was very impressed by the amount of effort that the Executive staff put into helping my son and providing a safe environment for all the players, especially the young ones. Those guys took ball speed seriously and paid attention. We did spend a decent amount of money at the field but even on those days when we were in conservation mode the support was there. My sons favorite phrase has always bean "Can I ask you a question? and at Executive they were always answered. I HAVE NOT played at the outdoor field in Blandford and I can't comment on it's condition but I can say that the core staff I dealt with at that business over an 18 month period were top notch and deserving of the highest praise. We were very sorry to see them forced out of Hampshire Mall . We now play in a new field about the same distance away as the old indoor field but while it's a good operation we would still patronize Executive if it were in our area. One of the reviewers here mentions a tendency to favor young kids. To me, a parent whos sons fifth grade classmates call " the crazy dad!" watching out for the young ones is a great thing. Kids don't learn to love things by being abused and hurt. My son started out as one of the players who the refs instructed not to bunker. At 10 years of age he now plays in a jersey, shorts and mask and is carefull not to shoot up the "little kids". Anyway I'm rambling. It sounds from these reviews that Executive may not be what it once was but at it's core is a very knowledgeable group of guys who really care about the sport and are good people.
