The NFHCA Player of the Week program originated in 2016 to honor an offensive and defensive player of the week in each division throughout the season.
Student-athletes are nominated each week of the fall season by their collegiate conference; each conference can nominate one student-athlete for Offensive Player of the Week and one student-athlete Defensive Player of the Week for their performance from Monday to Sunday of the previous week.
The nomination form opens at 8:00 a.m. EST every Monday and closes at noon (EST) the following Tuesday. Awards are announced every Wednesday during the field hockey playing season.
Players of the Week will receive an individualized digital certificate. Certificates will be created at the conclusion of the collegiate season — coaches will be notified when these certificates are available.
The Player of the Month awards are sponsored by Play Safe Turf & Track Ltd. — “Play Safe Turf, the best installer in the field hockey game!”
