Second annual golf tournament to benefit the Futures program

COLORADO SPRINGS– USA Field Hockey will host its second annual Golf Tournament in conjuction with the National Hockey Festival on Wednesday, November 23 at the Pointe Golf Course on Lookout Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. All proceeds from the Tournament go directly to the Futures Scholarship Fund. 

The Futures Program is USA Field Hockey’s Olympic development pipeline program. The mission of the program is to regionally develop the best athletes for the purpose of identifying talented “future” Olympic level athletes, and to strengthen the level of field hockey throughout the United States.

Every year talented athletes are unable to afford the Futures tuition. The Golf Tournament can help make the difference in allowing young athletes to continue their hockey journeys towards one day representing the USA.

Grab a cup of brew and prepare to Tee off Wednesday, November 23 at 8:30am. The event will include a 4-person scramble, lunch and awards reception immediately following in the Pointe In Tyme Grille & Tavern.

Last year was a huge success with fifty participants coming out to play in the first annual Festival Golf Tournament. Check out a photo gallery from last years event HERE.
