USA Field Hockey is dedicated to ensuring the safety health and well-being of all participants. As the organization begins to navigate the current coronavirus (COVID-19) environment in respect to returning to events and competitions, USA Field Hockey has assembled recommendations and requirements from the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health experts that will be in effect at USA Field Hockey National, Regional and Sanctioned Events, competitions and programs. These requirements and recommendations are intended to ensure that USA Field Hockey event organizers and participants are following the most recent guidance from federal, state and local public health officials.
These recommendations and requirements for operating USA Field Hockey National, Regional and Sanctioned events are in effect immediately and until further notice. They will be modified as guidance from government and public health officials change.
USA Field Hockey recognizes that the current environment requires each of us to take personal responsibility for the safety, health and well-being of ourselves, our families, colleagues and peers in training and at competitions. Whether a participant, event organizer, staff, umpire, coach or vendor, all need to exercise caution and take recommended precautionary measures while interacting with one another during events.
USA Field Hockey will continue to monitor the situation and make updates to the recommendations as needed. For the latest information and updates, visit USA Field Hockey's COVID-19 Updates.
