U.S. MASTERS TEAM

Field hockey is a game for life, whether you are age 7 or 70. 

Masters field hockey is competitive international field hockey for adult men and women. U.S. Masters field hockey works in conjunction with the International Masters Hockey Association (IMHA) and the International Hockey Federation (FIH) to help grow the sport worldwide. Since the IMHA was founded in 2007, Masters hockey has grown from just a few teams to more than 70 from across the globe. Multiple tournaments have been established for Masters players, including the Masters World Cup, featuring multiple age divisions starting at over 35.The Grand Masters World Cup, organized by the World Grand Masters Association (WGMA) and founded in 2002, serves male players 60 years of age and older. Other international events such as Golden Oldies (for the over 35 player) continue to develop Masters level play and foster positive social relations amongst the international field hockey community.

Masters is developing quickly around the world, and many countries have Masters leagues. The International Hockey Federation (FIH) is actively encouraging nations to grow national programs for both high performance and recreational masters field hockey. USA Field Hockey encourages everyone who is playing field hockey to get involved in adult play and tryout for Masters! The USA has both a U.S. Men's and a Women's Masters Committee dedicated to developing Master playing opportunities locally, regionally and internationally. 

USA Field Hockey encourages everyone who is playing field hockey, who previously played or would like to play, to get involved. USA Field Hockey has developed two, five-person Masters Committees, that are dedicated to developing master playing opportunities locally, regionally and internationally. The U.S. sent a Men's Masters Team to participate in the inaugural FIH Masters World Cup in 2012 and there are plans for USA Field Hockey to send a Women's Team to compete internationally.
