COLLEGE FIELD HOCKEY

USA College Hockey is a women’s only sport. There are over 300 universities that play hockey, with most being situated on the East Coast and Midwest regions of the States. The NCAA’s first college hockey championship was hosted in 1981 and the sport has since exploded in popularity, particularly among top-tier universities.

Many top hockey players have played at the college level, and include the likes of Charlotte Craddock, Lauren Crandall, and Katie Bam. Even the Netherlands, the current World Champions, have had many of their players follow the college scholarship route, making it a great pathway to playing at the very highest level!

FIELD HOCKEY SCHOLARSHIPS

Most Division 1 (D1) college teams are entitled to award 12 full scholarships, while D2 college teams can give out 6. D3 colleges do not award hockey scholarships at all, but will offer academic aid for top achieving hockey players instead. Hockey is only played at the NCAA level, with NAIA and NJCAA colleges not participating.

The Hockey National Championships are held in November each year, at the end of the fall season. This is similar to the soccer season, where the spring semester is the off-season. During this time, players will still compete, but not for a championship.
