USA Field Hockey is the national governing body for field hockey in the United States. USA Field Hockey is a member organization of the United States Olympic Committee and the International Hockey Federation. The USA Field Hockey Association is headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was founded in 1922.[1]

The organization is responsible for the U.S. Men's and Women's National Field Hockey Teams.

History

The United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA) was founded in 1922, to govern women's field hockey in the United States.[2] Six years later, in 1928, the Field Hockey Association of America (FHAA) was founded, to govern men's field hockey in the U.S.[2]

In April 1993, the USFHA and FHAA merged, to form the United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA).[2][3]
