Coaching Field Hockey

Field Hockey, known simply as ‘hockey’ outside of the USA, is one of the most popular team sports in the world. It’s a fun sport to play, coach, umpire and watch and it’s growing throughout the world. Field Hockey is a sport for life for men and women of all ages. These are just some of the reasons the NFHS has partnered with USA Field Hockey to develop and offer Coaching Field Hockey for interscholastic students.  This interactive course covers the skills, techniques and tactics necessary for individual and team development.  If you coach Field Hockey or supervise those who do, you need to take Coaching Field Hockey.  The NFHS & USA Field Hockey also offer an online course Coaching Field Hockey: Goalkeeping. Both courses are available at
