COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – November 7, 2019 – It has just been announced that USA Field Hockey will host a free All-Boys U-17 7v7 Tournament, including a free all-male clinic, during the 2019 National Hockey Festival, presented by CranBarry, in Tampa, Fla. from November 28 to 30.
Taking place at the Tournament Sportsplex of Tampa Bay, this All-Boys U-17 7v7 Tournament will be organized by East Coach High Performance (ECHP) with assistance from Doral Field Hockey, Key Biscayne Field Hockey and Charlotte Ambush FHC. This is the third competition offering that has been designated all-boys that stemmed from the inaugural event this past spring. The purpose of this event is to grow boys’ playing opportunities and offer regularly scheduled games and a youth league between the age divisions of U-10 to U-17.
Although the All-Boys U-17 7v7 Tournament is only offered to athletes under the age of 17, USA Field Hockey would like to encourage and invite all male family members – boys, young adults and grown men – traveling to Festival to attend the free clinic on Thursday, November 28. Registration will take place the morning of starting at 9:00 a.m. at the USA Field Hockey Tent up until the clinic starts at 2:00 p.m. on Field 12.
Registration is now open for the FREE All-Boys 7v7 Tournament in order to make well-balanced teams. Athletes will be able to register for the event at Festival and will be added to an existing team.
Jarred Martin, Ohio State University Head Coach, will be the lead instructor at the clinic. Martin was a member of the U.S. Men’s National Team for 12 years and represented USA in 104 international matches. As the starting center forward, he was one of the team leaders in goals and caps, having competed in three Pan American Games, two Olympic Qualifiers, two World Cup Qualifiers and three Pan American Cups.
