With the recent release of the TOP 150 Players in the Class of 2025, MAX Field Hockey now moves onto working on the TOP 100 Players to Watch for the Class of 2026.  The exact date they will be released is TBD (they will be released prior to this summer’s events).

If you are new to our Player Rankings or are curious about how we rank players and what players can to do to be considered, please check out our recent post that goes into detail about our Player Ranking process here: MORE ON THE PLAYER RANKING SELECTION PROCESS

Some tips for athletes looking to be considered for the Class of 2026 Top 100 Players to Watch:

  • Create a MAX Field Hockey Player Profile. It is free and easy.  You can put all of your High School, Club, USA Field Hockey accomplishments on there.  You can also link to your highlight video or other Player Profile where you may have even more info.
  • Create a good 3-5 minute Highlight Video. In real time (no super speed or slowed down).  Make it clear who you are and show your play at a high level event.
  • “Prove it on the Field” – sign up for Nexus, the National Player Combine, something where you will compete at the highest level with top players from outside of your area.
  • Have a high-quality recommendation submitted by a coach who knows you well and knows how you compare to the top players in the country. It does not help to have your mom/dad, aunt, junior high, rec coach, etc. all send recommendations.  More is not better, quality is better.  Learn More About Submitting Feedback
