Feb. 01, 2011, 5:44 p.m. (ET)

COLORADO SPRINGS, C.O.- Registration for USA Field Hockey’s inaugural National Club Championship (NCC) opened today, February 1, 2011 at 12:00pm EST. Sixteen teams were registered for the tournament for both the Under-19 and Under-17 divisions, with only 68 seconds separating the registration of the first and the sixteenth team.

Due to the high demand for participation at this event, the tournament will now host thirty-two Under-17 and thirty-two Under-19 teams. Increasing the number of teams from sixteen to thirty-two will create more competition and allow more Club teams to compete for the National Championship title.   

“We are very excited about hosting the first annual National Club Championship,” said Laura Darling, Managing Director of Olympic and Athlete Development. “It is great to see Clubs are so enthusiastic about this event, which is exciting for the development of our sport at the club level.”

From 2012 onwards, there will be regional qualifiers for Club teams to advance to the Championship. Regional qualifiers will identify the best teams in the country to compete at the National Championship for title of the number one Club team in the United States. 

“A National Club Championship will inevitably create a higher level of competition amongst club teams and will provide further training, outside of the school setting, for young athletes to advance their game,” said Terry Walsh, High Performance Technical Director. 

The following thirty-two teams in each division are registered for the tournament. Teams are listed in alphabetical order.
