Region 7 Coach Manager: Liz Sanders

Liz Sanders, USA Field Hockey’s Nexus Development Manager, will oversee coaching in Region 7. Liz has managed Olympic Development in Region 7 since 2017 and will continue to oversee the delivery of the program. 

Region 7 is unique in that it consists of two states and a district: Delaware, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Although Region 7 is one of the smaller geographic regions in the country, it is rich in tradition and history. The region is home to some of the top high school and collegiate programs across all divisions. It is also home to a large number of clubs providing year-round playing opportunities for boys and girls of all ages. Field hockey is growing in Region 7, with new programs forming each year.

Please use the administrative manager as the main point of contact for questions around schedules, registration and other administrative needs. All questions from and around coaching Nexus or on field content should be directed to the coach manager.
