The Level 2 will expand on several of the topics covered in the Level 1 clinic and will challenge participants to further define and evaluate their individual coaching philosophies, styles, techniques and encourage self-assessment. Additionally, coaches will work in groups to share best practices and receive peer feedback in a comfortable and encouraging environment.

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


USA Field Hockey Level 2 Instructional Clinic attendees will receive a Level 2 Certificate of Participation and, with USA Field Hockey membership, will be eligible to coach in USA Field Hockey programs including becoming a Head Coach of Futures and Junior Olympics (application process). Participants will also be able to advance further as we continue to expand offerings within USA Field Hockey’s Coach Education and Learning Program.
