Thanks for your interest in the 2021 National Field Hockey Coaches Forum (NCF)! The NCF will take place Wednesday, December 8 through Friday, December 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET. If you are unable to make all the sessions live, don't worry! Registrants will have access to the recordings to view at their convenience. USA Field Hockey's Coach Education and Learning team is excited to offer coaches and field hockey enthusiasts the opportunity to meet, listen and engage virtually with world class speakers in the comfort of one's own home.
While the NCF will center around an array of speakers from across the globe, USA Field Hockey will highlight U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Anthony Farry and newly appointed U.S. Men's National Team Head Coach Harry Singh.
We are excited to announce other featured speakers, including The Netherlands Head Coach, Alyson Annan whose team captured the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games. A two-time gold medal-winning coach of the National Women's Water Polo team (2016 and 2020), Adam Krikorian, will present on the challenges he's faced throughout his storied coaching career. Goalkeeping topics will be covered by another gold medal winning coach in Steve Bayer. The Belgium Red Lions team captured the Gold Medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games for Belgium. Field hockey experts will share their insights and provide hockey-specific tactical presentations as well as share their experiences which should inspire coaches of all levels.
A full list of presenters and topics will be available in the coming weeks.
