Campfire Mentoring Program

The NFHCA Campfire Mentoring Program brings coaches together to share experiences, foster fellowship, and promote growth. Small groups of four to seven coach members are assembled with a lead mentor in May and participate in a structured mentoring program for a full-calendar year.

The NFHCA’s Drill Library includes over 60 field hockey drills and three drill booklets for purchase (free for members). Drills are added every week during the playing season through the Drill of the Week program. Available drills cover a variety of topics and levels.

Field Templates

The NFHCA provides free field hockey pitch templates for anyone to download and print as a way to make creating your own drills, whether you’re a coach or an athlete, as easy as possible!

NFHCA Annual Convention

The Annual Convention is the year’s premier event where members of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) gather to discuss, connect, and learn. The event is, by and large, a professional development event where coaches discuss business as it relates to the NFHCA and by extension the sport of field hockey in the United States. The three-day event is highlighted by educational sessions, on-field clinics, and our Awards Dinner.
