LEXEETCUTTEIVRE DIRECTOR

With 2016 as an Olympic Games year, the key point inevitably was the Summer Games. As the field hockey community knows, Rio was great and
we are so proud of our U.S. Women’s National Team’s fifth place finish. There was much that happened in our sport in addition to those two weeks in
mid-August.
Now is a good time to reflect on the progress the USWNT has made. For a team to progress from 12th at the London 2012 Olympic Games to 5th in
Rio, is some achievement of the leadership of Craig Parnham The talent and sheer effort put in by the whole women’s team over a sustained period is
to be admired. The squad’s bronze medal finish at Champions Trophy in London drew recognition from many, and those inside the program
recognized the USWNT very well could have medaled in Rio. Sport can provide highs as well as lows. What our USWNT did achieve, is they brought
our sport to the attention of millions of inspired viewers on the NBC channels. This year saw the final performances of the incredible careers of
three-time Olympians Rachel Dawson and Lauren Crandall, two legends of our sport. As we enter the new quad, or four-year cycle, we welcome new
leadership as Janneke Schopman took of the women’s program and Rutger Weise was appointed the head coach of the men’s team.
With eyes on the present with so much programming from the grassroots to the Olympic Games, the organization also gazes ahead looking at the
long-term. Throughout the year, the Board of Directors, staff and many members contributed behind-the-scenes to the development of the Strategic
Plan 2017-2024 through surveys, interviews and focus groups. This process reinforced that while we all experience field hockey through our own lens,
we are all unified in our desire to grow the game. This central cause is what binds our sport together and as leaders, we are determined to follow
through on our commitment to grow the game. Sally Goggin, our National Development Director, joined the organization in January and continues to
make great strides in providing tools and inspiration to those growing field hockey in their communities. The FUNdamental Field Hockey program
distributed grants to 295 start-up programs through 2016.
We are determined to strengthen the infrastructure of our sport by investing in a more robust coach education pathway with inspired and trained
coaches teaching our sport. We believe this will lead to athletes having richer experiences developing in field hockey and encouraging their friends to
join too. At the beginning of 2017, Craig moved into the lead role as our Director of Coach Education and Learning. This initiative is central to our
sports long-term success.
As our organization continues to develop, last year we set new record high across a number of metrics including membership having more than
26,000 members, digital media with just short of a million website users as well as our Olympic Games and FIH tournament performances. We

recognize that the most important metric of all is participation, and with that
we want more people to choose field hockey as the sport they are playing.

Lastly, I want to congratulate the 2016 NCAA College National Champions,
the University of Delaware (DI), Shippensburg University (DII) and Messiah
College (DIII). And congratulations to 2016 National Club Championship
winners Princeton (U-19) and WC Eagles (U-16 and U-14). And the biggest
congratulations of all is to those who put on field hockey experiences that
allow so many people to gain such joy from our sport and to the many
who volunteer to teach our game to young people. You have my utmost
admiration, you are the ones making an important and positive impact.

In 2016, USA Field Hockey’s Membership continued its upward trend. The U-12 Age Division
experienced an impressive 13.23 percent leap from 2015. This shows that more young participants
are being drawn to our sport more than ever before, and programs such as FUNdamental Field
Hockey, coupled with events like Summer Bash at the Beach, have greatly improved the offerings
for this age group. Forming this solid foundation will only continue to improve the quantity and
quality of play in the United States. Coach Membership ranked second in amount of growth
with a 7.02 percent increase. With the elevated focus on the Coach Education Program and
revamped certification program, these members have access to higher levels of training and
resources, only adding to their set of tools to grow the game. Temporary Memberships rose 3.30
percent in the last year, showcasing an increase number of participants in USA Field Hockey’s
Sanctioned Events, including California Cup, Junior Premier Indoor and Outdoor Leagues and
Baltimore Field Hockey Association’s Beach Bash. The introduction of the Collegiate Membership in
2016 also expanded the opportunities to keep athletes involved at the college level and beyond. In
2017, USA Field Hockey looks to expand our membership reach by providing more resources and
benefits to all athletes, coaches, umpires and fans that make up the USA Field Hockey Family.

Qualified coaches are critical to the long-term growth and success of our sport, and the development of coaches plays a
pivotal role in ensuring sustainable athlete success from grassroots to the high performance level. USA Field Hockey’s
Coaching Education Program (CEP) has been developed by some of the most prominent experts in the game to welcome
and mentor new coaches as well as inspire and assist veteran coaches, including those who coach professionally.

The CEP made major strides in 2016, launching the new Level 1 and Level 2 Instructional Coaching Courses,
accreditation program and offering many tools, resources and avenues for coach education and learning.

USA Field Hockey Coach Membership reached an all-time high in 2016 with 2,057 Coach Members, up almost
7 percent from 2015. We hope our Coach Membership base will continue to grow as we increase the value and
benefits of coach membership and further engage the field hockey coaching community through professional
development offerings and enhanced educational resources.

Level 2 Instructional Coaching Clinics

USA Field Hockey’s Level 2 Instructional Coaching Clinics were launched and optimized
in 2016. The Level 2 Clinic is a 14-hour offering that expands on several of the topics
covered in the Level 1 Clinic and challenges participants to further define and evaluate
their individual coaching philosophies, styles and techniques while encouraging
self-assessment. Additionally, coaches work in groups to share best practices
and receive peer feedback in a comfortable and encouraging environment.

Two Level 2 Clinics were held in 2016. A total of 50 coaches received their
Level 2 Certification and seven Coach Educators were specifically trained
to facilitate the Level 2 Clinic. The number of Level 2’s offered will increase in 2017. Feedback was

and 65 percent gave it the highest possible rating.

Training

Umpire training was on going throughout 2016. Region 5 and the Northeast Region were the most active with
many indoor and outdoor offerings. Much of the focus in these regions were the younger umpires who were of
high school and college age. 2016 saw an influx of younger people interested in umpiring which
was evident in the training sessions, clinic attendance and other events. Region 4, 9, 10 and 11
continued to have more challenges in training since these areas are so large. There are pockets of
umpires but to get them to train is difficult based on travel and resources. There were many
individuals who asked about umpiring trainings for 2017 and resources are being re-allocated to
target areas for training as needed.

In conjunction with STX Select, a two-day upper level (collegiate) seminar was hosted. There Region

FUNdamental Field Hockey

In 2016, USA Field Hockey’s Sport Development Team continued their initiative to grow the game of field hockey in the
United States through its first-exposure Citi FUNdamental Field Hockey (FFH), presented Harrow Sports, equipment grant.

Expanding the program in 2016 to include boys and girls ages 6-14, there were 295 FFH grants awarded, the most ever
in one year, including 235 sets of wooden sticks and 60 sets of plastic sticks, specifically designed for physical
education classes and young athletes. USA Field Hockey distributed more than 1,000 grants (24,000 sticks!) to
schools, club teams and multi-sport organizations since the inception in 2012. Each FFH grant includes 24 sticks
(wood or plastic), 24 balls, 12 cones, a carrying bag and a 10-session curriculum guide formatted for physical
education classes and after-school programming.

The direct impact of FFH can be measured through the growth PROFFGHRGAMRASNGTISVEN
of USA Field Hockey’s youth membership. From 2015 to 2016,
the U-12 age category grew more than 13 percent. To continue 295
awareness around FFH, USA Field Hockey continued the
popular #FUNFriday social media campaign initiative, sharing
photos from host club teams with a motivational quote.

Foundations Courses Lau
Vit
USA Field Hockey recognizes that many teachers and coaches are interested in field hockey
and want to expose it to their students but may have never played and don’t feel comfortable J
teaching the sport. Interest was especially high during and following the Rio 2016 Olympic
Games, and as a result USA Field Hockey created the Foundations Courses.

Foundations Courses are entry-level coach education courses, targeted to individuals
with little to no field hockey experience who are preparing to introduce the sport.
These courses are free of charge and are often requested by school districts
looking to add field hockey to their physical education curriculum. Provided
Coach Educators with extensive field hockey background and expertise teach
the courses.

In 2016, six Foundations Courses were held in six different states,
ultimately teaching almost 200 teachers and coaches how to introduce
the basics of field hockey in their communities. The teachers have the
reach to expose the sport to more than 30,000 students through
physical education classes and after-school programming.

Starter Packages

A new initiative in 2016, Starter Packages were designed to help schools and
clubs start new field hockey programs where they previously did not exist.
To help reduce the cost of start-ups, USA Field Hockey partnered with
CranBarry/OBO/Grays and Goal Sporting Goods to provide discounts on
packages of goals and goalkeeper equipment, the two most expensive
items required to start a program.

Starter Packages were provided to 14 school in Loudoun County,
Va. USA Field Hockey’s Starter Packages saved parents and
athletes more than $25,000.

USA Field Hockey’s Starter Packages was selected as a top
growth initiative by Project Play in their “What’s Your Play”
category, inviting us to introduce and promote the program
to all conference attendees.

Celebrating High School Field Hockey

In 2016, USA Field Hockey worked with state high school associations to
bring USWNT athletes to State Field Hockey Championships to increase
interest and attendance as well as to promote the sport and Team USA.
Each state had meet and greets with Olympians and some held clinics
prior to the state championship games. Team USA athletes participated
in the ceremonial coin toss and presented the state champions their
trophies.
