COVID-19 Resources

From the NFHCA

“In these unprecedented times, there has never been a more important moment for the field hockey community to come together as one. I am encouraged and excited by the creativity and adaptability that coaches are showing during this pandemic — showing that even in difficult circumstances, they continue to put student-athletes first and keep our sport front-of-mind.

The NFHCA is committed to supporting all of our coaches through this uncertain moment and is working hard to ensure that we will be putting our best foot forward when we take the field again.”

Anne Parmenter, NFHCA President

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I be able to renew my NFHCA membership?

Yes! You can now renew your NFHCA membership at nfhca.org/join.

If you were a 2019-2020 NFHCA member and have had your budget frozen due to COVID-19, email Kirstin (kirstin@nfhca.org) for options.

Will we be playing in the fall?

Explore our list of institutions that have amended their fall season.

Coaches at all playing levels should be having dialogue with their peers and administrators about their institution’s and conference’s thought processes regarding the impact of COVID-19.

Decisions about a return to competition will be made by the NCAA and state high school athletic associations, these decisions will be influenced by federal, state, and local guidelines as well as guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What is the current status on recruiting?

This is a fluid topic. Answers will vary by NCAA Division and by institution — there is no one-size-fits-all model. Prospective student-athletes and coaches should continue to monitor rulings from the NCAA (resources which are linked on this page) and act with the health and well-being of PSAs and coaches in mind.

For PSAs: The NFHCA encourages the use of video as a recruiting tool. Visit our Recruiting 101 page for helpful information and how-to guides.

For college coaches: The NCAA will set this path — keep an open line of communication between you and your administration and conference offices.

How can we hold trainings and competition safely?

Federal, state, and local governments as well as the NCAA and high school state athletic associations will guide these decisions.

The NCAA has offered guidance on return-to-play through their Sport Science Institute.

In the meantime, the FIHNFHS, and USOPC have provided helpful resources about returning to play and important steps to consider.
