USA Field Hockey’s Level 1 Instructional Coaching Clinic is an 8-hour offering and will be held at Mt. Lebanon High School on Sunday, April 7, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET. This Level 1 is specifically designed for individuals with a basic knowledge and understanding of the game of field hockey. Individuals who are brand new to the sport are welcome to attend, but may find it difficult as the course covers a broad range of topics in a short period of time. This Level 1 clinic is the perfect opportunity for professional development and local networking. 

Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and space is limited.

Upon completion of the course, all participants will receive their Level 1 Coaching Certification. This certification will remain valid as long as your USA Field Hockey Coach Membership remains current. Certification will lapse without a current membership. Coaches interested in working in USA Field Hockey's Futures Program must have a Level 1 Certification and a current USA Field Hockey Coach Membership to be eligible to apply.
