COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Whether they are aiming to beat their previous running test time or striving to deliver a world-class performance every game, the U.S. National Field Hockey Teams are constantly embracing the element of pressure.

A new dynamic of pressure has been added to the U.S. Men’s National Team’s arsenal. USA Field Hockey is excited to announce that EC3D, the official supplier of compression wear for the U.S. Women’s National Team, has extended their sponsorship to the Men’s National Team. EC3D specializes in seamless compression garments that improve blood circulation and deliver more oxygen to working muscles through balanced surface pressure. By wearing EC3D products, athletes are better able to eliminate metabolic wastes that cause muscle fatigue.

“We are very proud to support the men's USA Field Hockey team,” said Carine Villeneuve, Vice President at EC3D. “Looking forward to helping the team with endurance, performance and recuperation with the EC3D compression gear.”

EC3D compression wear will allow the Men’s National Team to reach their peak performance in their upcoming tournaments by decreasing delayed onset muscle soreness and aiding recovery.

"The Men’s National Team is eager to use EC3D product during air travel to minimize fluid retention in the lower extremity, as well as after exercise for recovery,” said Chris Clements, Men’s National Team Coach. “We feel EC3D will greatly assist the Men’s National Team in achieving their goals at the international level.”
