2021 U-16 Girls National Indoor Tournament, presented by YOLO Sportswear

The 2021 U-16 Girls National Indoor Tournament, presented by YOLO Sportswear, will take place February 19 through 21 at Spook Nook Sports in Lancaster, Pa.

Qualification

Without hosting the 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

By December 8 or 9, USA Field Hockey will contact each club with the number of teams they will be allotted to enter into a U-16 and/or U-19 Girls NIT based off the statical data.
