Summer Bash Series Objectives

One of USA Field Hockey's primary goals is to fuel growth of the game across the country. To achieve this mission, we provide opportunities for participation and development that are fun, encouraging, safe and positive, and create settings and experiences that promote the development of confidence, connection, character and teamwork. We strive to support and develop individuals who are passionate about the game and who choose to stay involved with the sport throughout their lives as players, parents, coaches, umpires, administrators, advocates and fans.

Throughout our history, USA Field Hockey has hosted tournaments primarily for the U16, U19 and adult age groups. In an effort to encourage trial and awareness and grow the game, USA Field Hockey will be increasing our offerings of affordable and accessible regional playing opportunities for children aged 6-14.

Children aged 6-14 want opportunities to play and learn. Research proves “winning” mean far less to kids than to adults, and 9 of 10 kids said “fun” is the main reason they participate in sports. When asked to define fun, they offered up 81 reasons— and ranked “winning” at No. 48. Young girls gave it the lowest ratings. (Project Play - https://aspenprojectplay.org/the-facts)

Competitive events targeted to our youngest athletes will be appropriately tailored to prioritize the fun and social aspects of the game, while promoting proper skill development.

We hope to see you there!
