2014 Futures Elite Academy Selections Announced

This summer, the crème de la crème of high school athletes competed in the National Futures Championship, Futures Elite Championship, and AAU Junior Olympics. From these three events, the top competitors across U14, U16, and U19 age groups have been selected to train at the 2014 Futures Elite Academies. These athletes have been identified as possessing the skills, talent, and athletic prowess to successfully continue through the next stages in USA Field Hockey’s Olympic Development Pipeline. The Academies exist to provide additional training and competition opportunities for these athletes distinguished with the potential to one day represent Team USA.

“Within the Olympic movement our mechanism to identify the sport’s top athletes and move those competitors to the next level is well renowned,” explained USA Field Hockey’s Executive Director, Steve Locke. “This program is the envy of the Olympic family and has proven over the years to showcase athletes and improve their technical skills for top collegiate performance and potential Olympic team selection.”

The Futures Elite Academy Program sits atop the Olympic Development Pipeline along with the U17, U19, and U21 Junior National Team Squads. All Futures Elite Academy athletes must have participated in the Futures Program in order to continue up the Olympic Pipeline. Futures Elite Academy selectees participate in a Level I training site comprised of athletes who attended the prior year’s NFC, FEC, and AAU Junior Olympics within their region until the Futures Elite Academies begin in March, April, or May. Futures Elite Academy athletes have the unique opportunity to hone their hockey skills at an elite level under the highest caliber of coaches and develop their game amongst the country’s most talented high school aged players.

Congratulations to the following athletes who have been selected to train at the 2014 Futures Elite Academies:
