Dual NIT Weekend Set for Pennsylvania & Virginia

Feb. 19, 2020, 12:58 p.m. (ET)

LANCASTER, Pa. & RICHMOND, Va. – February 19, 2020 – Following four days of non-stop action at the U-14 Girls Sheetz National Indoor Tournament (NIT), presented by YOLO Sportswear, more age groups are ready to get underway on the courts this weekend in both Pennsylvania and Virginia. The U-10 and U-12 Co-Ed age divisions will take place at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, Pa. while the U-19 Boys, U-19 Girls and Adult divisions will be hosted at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Va. Both sites will compete starting Friday, February 21 and through to Sunday, February 23.

Twice the action also means twice the attention, which means USA Field Hockey has made it as simple as possible providing all the latest tournament information on any mobile device. Teams, coaches and fans can stay up-to-date with everything happening this weekend through a number of sources. Check out the following information for more details on how to stay informed wherever your NIT ventures take you.

USA Field Hockey Tent and Larry Amar Family Fund
Right next to Vendor Village in Lancaster and Richmond will be the USA Field Hockey Tent. Staff will be available to answer questions and will also be selling stickers and magnets to honor Olympian and U.S. National Teams Manager Larry Amar, who passed away last month. The design was created by Larry’s stepdaughter, Riley, to honor and remember him and for others to enjoy. Each sticker and magnet cost $3.00 each, with cash and credit card being accepted. All proceeds will go directly toward the Larry Amar Family Fund.
