For athletes that are interested but unable to make any of the three tryouts, there is an alternative method for selection.

If you are selected to the squad, you are not eligible for team selection until you attend a practice where coach(es) and/or selector(s) can do an in-person evaluation. The fee for alternate selection is $100 and open Monday, March 13 to Tuesday, April 4. More information will be available in March.
All athletes must have an active USA Field Hockey Membership through the tryout period of April 4, 2023 regardless of the weekend/site you are attending in order to participate in a tryout. If you are renewing your membership, the anniversary date will be the same as your prior membership, not the date of renewal, so you will not lose any days in your membership. If you have any questions regarding a USA Field Hockey Membership, please reach out to email@example.com.
For World Masters Hockey (WMH) sanctioned international events (Pan American Continental Cup and World Cup events), WMH requires that a player must be “a national of that country or have been a resident of that country for a minimum of 12 months.”
