National Indoor Tournament

Lancaster, Pa. & Richmond, Va., United States

Feb. 12 - 28, 2021



USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 2021 National Indoor Tournament (NIT), presented by YOLO Sportswear. With more than 600 teams participating in 2020 across the U-10 Co-Ed, U-12 Co-Ed, U-14 Girls, U-16 Girls and U-19 Girls divisions, USA Field Hockey saw its largest NIT event yet. To accommodate anticipated growth and continue to run a premier indoor tournament experience, the 2021 NIT will be facilitated on the following dates and locations:

  • U-14 Girls NIT | February 12-15, 2021 | Spooky Nook Sports, Lancaster, Pa.
  • U-16 Girls NIT | February 19-21, 2021 | Spooky Nook Sports, Lancaster, Pa.
  • U-10/12 Co-Ed NIT | February 26-28, 2021 | Spook Nook Sports, Lancaster, Pa.
  • U-19 Girls | February 26-28, 2021 | Greater Richmond Convention Center, Richmond, Va.

Without hosting the 2021 National Indoor Tournament Qualifiers (NITQ), USA Field Hockey will use a different approach for qualification for the U-16 and U-19 Girls divisions into the NIT. For 2021, USA Field Hockey will grant each club that registered to attend the NITQ, one team spot into the designated division at the NIT. The remaining NIT spots for the U-16 and U-19 Girls divisions will be based on the qualifying percentage between the teams entered into the NITQ and the qualified number of teams in the NIT from 2019 and 2020. For example, if a club had six teams in the U-19 Girls NITQ in 2019 and 2020 and qualified three teams to the NIT in those years, they would receive 50% allocation of the 2021 teams submitted into this year’s NITQ.


Team check in will be required before the first game of the tournament. Teams and spectators are requested to arrive no earlier than 1-hour before the start of their first game on all three/four days of the tournament.

Check-in guidelines per each venue can be found in the NIT Club Information Packet above.
