The 2021 National Player Combine (NPC) is a brand new elite event designed to allow top field hockey players in the classes of 2022, 2023, 2024, and 2025 to demonstrate all aspects of their athleticism, skills, and talent on the field.  Individuals will be evaluated by class through 5 sessions that include physiology, field hockey skills, small group play, and full field 11v11 play. The NPC standardized testing and evaluation curriculum will be developed and implemented by the highest level individuals in the sport. We are excited to announce Kyle McMinn, Director of Strength & Conditioning for the USA Field Hockey Women’s National Team, will be the NPC Physiology Director.  We look forward to announcing the NPC Field Hockey Director soon.

Upon completion of the combine, athletes will receive a comprehensive player evaluation highlighting areas of strength and suggested improvements.  Athletes will also receive a highlight video of their personal play throughout the weekend (included in the fee!) and access to all additional video footage to download if desired.

This is an elite event.  There is an application process that will allow us to ensure the highest level of competition. Each session will be limited to 66 athletes per class, including a maximum of 6 goalkeepers.  At the conclusion of each combine weekend, we will name the top third of athletes for each class based on their performance.

All NCAA Division 1, 2 and 3 college Head and Assistant Coaches will be invited and we anticipate a high level of college coach attendance.  View the list of registered coaches here.
