COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - April 6, 2020 -Following the launch of Backyard Field Hockey, presented by STX, last week, USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce the release of the first expansion pack, Hero Power Cards.




The Hero Power Cards allow players to assume the super strengths of one of four U.S. Men’s National Team or four U.S. Women’s National Team athletes. Using the Hero Power Cards players might suddenly be transformed into a clinical goal scorer or defender that is so hard to beat that opponents are best served giving them a wide berth. In addition to the USMNT and USWNT Hero Power cards, the expansion pack includes a blank template for players to create their own Hero Powers.


The cards can be used in any number of ways including picking your own Hero Power, picking for another player or picking at random. Some will add challenge to the player in possession of the Hero Power while others will present more of challenge to opponents. Either way, the cards are sure to add a variety of fun problems to games for players to solve.


Next week will see the addition of the second Backyard Field Hockey expansion pack, the Powerplay Challenge Spinner featuring five fun skill challenges and five challenge modifiers to add another layer to the game.
