The NFHCA launched a long term partnership with SportsRecruits to launch the co-branded NFHCARecruits in 2023. NFHCARecruits allows college coaches to search through a database of thousands of prospective student-athlete profiles and video. Layered on top of the NFHCARecruits platform is the EventBeacon App, which is a sideline evaluation tool for college coaches to use on site at recruiting events. Student-athlete profiles on NFHCARecruits flow directly into EventBeacon to provide college coaches with complete information coupled with event schedules and evaluation tools.
Both the NFHCARecruits platform and EventBeacon app are completely provided at no cost to college coaches, accessible via your college program issued email address. In order to login to your account, please follow the steps below:
- Head to the NFHCARecruits College Coach Login Page

The Discover feed on NFHCARecruits is a place for any college coach to search through the entire database of field hockey student-athletes to discover prospective student-athletes to recruit. To learn more about this feature, check out the SportsRecruits help desk: Navigating the Discover Feed as a College Coach.
On NFHCARecruits, you and your staff have the ability to publish Roster Needs, which is a way for you to indicate specific positions you are looking for in upcoming grad years. Once a Need is published, your ‘My Needs’ feed will only display athletes who meet the defined criteria. These Needs will also be visible to student-athletes, clubs, and high schools that use the NFHCARecruits platform. Student-athletes are then able to understand how they may fit your program and when they should (and should not) email you. Here is information on how to Create and Edit Roster Needs as a College Coach.
Access thousands of hours of footage from recruiting events across the country via EventBeacon On-Demand. Within this video library, search for film by event name, athlete or team.
