USA Field Hockey invites coaches to attend the fourth annual National Coaches Forum at Spooky Nook Sport in Lancaster, Pa. This year’s event includes the addition of an entire day focused specifically on goalkeeping coaching. The National Goalkeeping Coaches Forum will take place on Thursday, December 7 and the National Coaches Forum will be held on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9. This year's Forum is open to Level 2 certified coaches and will include presentations from Craig Parnham, USA Field Hockey's Director of Coach Education and Learning, Janneke Schopman, USWNT Head Coach, and Rutger Wiese, USMNT Head Coach. There will also be a special guest presenter, Alan Olive, Director of 1 High Performance Coaching and one of the leading practitioners and consultants for various Olympic sports.


The inaugural National Goalkeeping Coaches Forum on Thursday, December 7, is a newly adopted professional development opportunity designed for goalkeeping coaches that have at least a basic understanding of the position. The focus will be on coaching development of goalkeepers of all levels. Program content will be delivered through a combination of practical on-field demonstrations and classroom-based workshops and will include:

  • Coaching the technical aspects of goalkeeping
  • Effective practice design for developing goalkeepers
  • Putting it all together - coaching goalkeepers in a team setting
Join Phil Edwards and Dave Williamson, U.S. Women's National Team Goalkeeping Staff, and Craig Parnham, USA Field Hockey's Director of Coach Education and Learning, for what promises to be an engaging professional development opportunity for all.

The National Coaches Forum is targeted primarily to high performance coaches who are interested in networking with and learning from the U.S. Men's and Women's National Team coaches and training staff. Traditionally a multiple day event, it will include the opportunity  to watch a narrated U.S. Women's National team practice, on-field technical work and classroom discussions facilitated by USA Field Hockey's Coach Education Team and the National Team Coaches and staff.
