Dec. 17, 2012, 10:13 a.m. (ET)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - USA Field Hockey is excited to announce the locations, venues and dates for the Regional Club Championships (RCC), presented by Harrow Sports. The Regional Club Championships serve as qualifying tournaments for the elite 2013 National Club Championships to be held in July.

Beginning last year, club teams must compete in a Regional Championship in order to earn a spot at the National Club Championship. Regional qualifiers identify the best club teams in the country to compete at the premier National Championship event for honors and bragging rights of being the top U-19 and U-16 club field hockey team in the nation. Last year, Spirit of USA and WC Eagles were named the U-16 and U-19 National Club Champions, respectively.

The Regional Club Championships run from March 16 through May 12 and enable every club from the eleven regions to have an opportunity to advance to the National Club Championship.

Please contact the RCC Host with any questions regarding the Regional Club Championship in your area. This information can also be found on the Regional Club Championship event page.
