COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – August 16, 2013 – A pristine tournament title is on the table. This never-before unmarked, polished prize will be eagerly block tackled and slide tackled for as teams across the nation contend to be dubbed the first Under-14 National Field Hockey Festival champion.

In its first year, the Under-14 division will see 42 teams compete. Hailing from Texas all the way to Ontario, Canada, 11, 12 and 13 year olds will be the driving force behind a new record number for the 2013 National Festival which is known to be the world’s largest field hockey event aside from the Olympic Games.

The U-14 girls will each play six matches, consisting of two 25-minute halves on half fields in a round-robin, 7-a-side tournament.

USA Field Hockey welcomes the teams below to compete at the U-14 tournament which will surely create new memories along with new records.

During the week of Thanksgiving, passing the ball around the pitch has become as much of an anticipated tradition as passing the turkey around the table. Athletes and their family, coaches and umpires have marked their November calendars to travel to Palm Beach, Florida for USA Field Hockey’s National Hockey Festival, presented by CranBarry. Festival has become a tradition in the hockey community, growing into what is today the largest amateur field hockey event in the world.
