USA Field Hockey is committed to creating a safe and positive environment for its participants’ physical, emotional, and social development and to ensuring that it promotes an environment free from abuse and misconduct. As part of this program USA Field Hockey has established six policies protecting against certain types of abuse and misconduct; Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Bullying, Harassment, and Hazing.

Member Clubs that are Safe Sport Certified have made the commitment to adopt these protection policies as well as prevention and reporting policies.
