FUTURES INDIVIDUAL TRIAL

If you are an athlete that aspires to be a part of USA Field Hockey’s Futures Program you must participate in a Futures Individual Trial. Athletes must go through an individual trial with their high school, middle school or club team coach to be considered for the 2018 Futures Program. Only athletes who are new to the Futures Program must register for an individual trial. Athletes who participated in the 2017 Futures Program last year do not need to register for a trial. If you participated in the 2017 Futures Program and withdrew from the program due to medical reasons, and produced medical documentation, you do not need to participate in an individual trial. If you participated in a previous year in Futures but did not participate in the 2017 Futures Program, you must perform an Individual Trial to be eligible for the 2018 Futures Program.
