The Startup Club Development Guide is designed to inaugurate, offer expansion ideas and create longevity within current or establishing USA Field Hockey clubs. The guide provides helpful information on everything from deciding on programming to practicing successful business models. It is the hope of USA Field Hockey that the guide will greatly assist those interested in growing the sport.

The guide was put together by USA Field Hockey’s Sport Development Team in an effort to provide resources to potential and existing clubs. The ability to create avenues and opportunities for athlete development, community involvement and hockey knowledge is a direct extension of USA Field Hockey’s overall mission to Grow the Game

As part of a club, all members and coaches must be members of USA Field Hockey to participate in USA Field Hockey national and sanctioned events. Among many other benefits, members receive accident participant insurance provided by ESIX, covering all USA Field Hockey national and sanctioned events, and a subscription to FH Life print and digital editions.
