Coaches Polls

The National Field Hockey Coaches Association has been publishing National Coaches Polls for each NCAA division every week during the field hockey playing season since 1997.

Home » Polls

Since 1997, the NFHCA has been publishing the National Coaches Polls for each NCAA division. The polls are voted on by NFHCA collegiate members each week during the field hockey playing season. The format of the polls are decided on by each NFHCA member group.

The NFHCA recognizes that the weekly rankings are the association’s best attempt to compare the strengths and weaknesses of each NCAA division’s field hockey programs from across the nation. The rankings are a reflection of the best teams each week as reported by the voting institutions. This poll is in no way intended to be a reflection of who will be selected to the NCAA Championship Tournament.

Details

  • Division I — The Penn Monto/NFHCA Division I Coaches Poll is a composite ranking of the top 25 teams in the nation each week. Each Division I team with an NFHCA member coach is permitted one vote for the ranking each week.
  • Division II — The Penn Monto/NFHCA Division II Coaches Poll is a composite ranking of the top 10 teams in the nation each week. Each Division II team with an NFHCA member coach is permitted one vote for the ranking each week.
