To maintain the integrity of our student-athlete nomination and award programs, there is a “dead period” for head collegiate and head scholastic coaches to join the NFHCA between October 1 – March 1. Assistant coaches, club coaches, and affiliates are still eligible to join the NFHCA during this time.

Membership FAQs

I am a current member, how do I renew?

Login to the NFHCA Member Portal to renew. After you have logged in, click on the "My Account" tab and select "Memberships" to submit your renewal and payment.

My institution requires I pay by check — how can I join by mail?

Please fill out the online membership application in its entirety, then on the payment page of the application, select "check" under payment options, then select "process payment." A downloadable PDF invoice will be generated on the next screen and will also be sent to the email address entered on your application.

Mail a check for the full amount of membership, made out to the NFHCA, and a copy of the invoice to:

NFHCA, P.O. Box 49098, Colorado Springs, CO 80949

What is the difference between an individual membership and an institutional membership?

An individual membership provides an NFHCA membership to one single coach.

An institutional membership provides up to four coaches from the same educational institution or organization with individual NFHCA memberships at a discounted rate.

As a head coach, can I join anytime throughout the year?

To maintain the integrity of our student-athlete nomination and award programs, there is a "dead period" for head collegiate and head scholastic coaches to join the NFHCA between October 1 – March 1. Assistant coaches, club coaches, and affiliates are still eligible to join the NFHCA during this time.

Memberships are established on a calendar year from July 1 to June 30, not on the anniversary date of membership.

What is the difference between an active membership and an affiliate membership?

Active members are those actively coaching at the collegiate, high school, and club levels. Active coaches can nominate student-athletes for awards, can vote in group elections, and can vote at official NFHCA meetings.

Affiliate members are those interested in field hockey and who support the mission of the NFHCA, but are not actively coaching at the collegiate, high school, and club level. Affiliate members can only nominate for NFHCA awards (Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement, Junior Hockey Award), but cannot nominate student-athletes for awards. Affiliate members can lend their voice to motions at official NFHCA meetings, but they cannot vote.

To learn more about the differences in membership, review our bylaws.

How do I edit staff members within my Institutional Membership?

If you are the primary account holder for your Institutional Membership, you can edit your staff members from your member portal by logging in and selecting the “My Account” dropdown menu. After selecting “Employee Accounts” you will be able to edit your Institutional Account and add or remove staff members.

Where is the High School Coach membership?

Since the adoption of our new bylaws, high school coaches are now referred to as “Scholastic Coaches.”

Scholastic members include elementary and secondary coaches at the junior varsity and varsity levels.

What happened to the Lifetime membership?

The Lifetime membership option was eliminated with the creation of the new NFHCA bylaws. Those interested in supporting the NFHCA and who are interested in the sport of field hockey, should register as an affiliate member.

To learn more about the differences in membership, review our bylaws.

I was just hired as my institution’s field hockey coach — how do I join?

Congratulations!

Email outreach@nfhca.org to see if your institution is already a member. If it is, we can transfer your institution’s membership to you — this is an important step so that we can communicate directly with you regarding award nominations, deadlines, and other group-specific information.

I am no longer working at the institution affiliated with my membership, am I still an NFHCA member?

Active memberships reside with the institution, not the individual. If you are no longer working at the institution that your membership was created with, you are no longer an NFHCA member.

We encourage you to join the NFHCA as an affiliate member so you can stay involved in the NFHCA and connected with our community.
