|There are pivotal moments in sport where athletes and teams achieve an accomplishment so renowned that their victories undoubtedly inspire generations and elevate the game to new heights. These champions of sport carve out their presence in field hockey history and blaze the trail for others to create their own path to success. Their accolades derived from hard work and heart live within not the glass of a trophy case but in the youth that strive to emulate such greatness.
To celebrate these athletes and teams, for the first time since 2004, USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce a new class of members to be inducted to the Hall of Fame this June. USA Field Hockey received an overwhelming amount of qualified candidates for this year’s class, and we would like to thank everyone who contributed to this process for their enthusiasm and dedication to this event.
After careful consideration, the Hall of Fame Committee has selected seven new members and five Honorary Members to the USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame. We are excited to announce that for the first time in the history of this event, USA Field Hockey will be honoring a team and a male as members of the Hall of Fame. USA Field Hockey is extremely proud of all inductees for their accomplishments on and off the field.
