All athletes must have an active USA Field Hockey Membership through the tryout period of April 15, 2023 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 (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.”
