Coaches play a very important role in not only teaching the game, but also in building discipline, self-esteem, confidence and passion for a sport. Coaches can be some of the most important and influential role models in kids’ lives demonstrating the value of teamwork, discipline and sacrifice.

We encourage field hockey coaches of all levels to become USA Field Hockey Coach Members and go through the Coaching Certification Program to become equipped with the most current, effective and engaging ways to teach their student athletes. Whether coaching as a volunteer in a youth recreation program or at the club, middle school, high school or collegiate level, USA Field Hockey's educational offerings, tools and resources will inspire and provide opportunity, direction and support to help  you reach your personal and professional goals. Membership also makes you part of a community that supports the growth and development of field hockey across the United States. This essentially helps field our U.S. Men's and Women's National Teams as they strive for international success.
