Club Field Hockey

Mission:

Our mission is to provide year round field hockey training for the serious athlete.  HHAC will be the training ground for the York areas most talented field hockey players. Our club will stress field hockey fundamentals, situational play, individual skill development and team play as well as provide high level training for those who intend on pursuing a collegiate field hockey career.

We will compete year round in both outdoor and indoor regional and national tournaments.  Tournaments will include regional collegiate invitational tournaments, the NIT qualifiers and the Disney Field Hockey Showcase.  We will also pursue a bid in the National Field Hockey Festival each season.

The club field hockey program will run from November 1st – June 30th  for the active season.  Tryouts will be held in late July with the indoor portion of practices and tournaments beginning in November.  Each team will practice twice a week; once on a weeknight and once on the weekend.  Tournaments will be one day events with a maximum driving distance of two hours.  The U16 and U19 teams will participate in up to 10 tournaments with a mixture of indoor tournaments which are 5 vs. 5 structured and outdoor tournaments beginning in April which are 7 vs. 7.  Teams will have the option of playing in the National Indoor Tournament qualifier.

Player Selection and Team Assignment

We select players based on skill, performance, attitude and attendance.  Our goal is to develop individual skills within the context of the team so that each player is prepared to play at the appropriate level in the program as well as preparing you to play at the collegiate level.  A player’s attitude toward the club, coaches and their teammates is regarded highly in our selection and retention process.

  • All players must become members of USA Field Hockey.  Our club is a club member in good standing with USA Field Hockey thus all players will be covered by insurance once they are a member of USA Field Hockey.
