2024 NATIONAL PLAYER COMBINE
PROVE IT ON THE FIELD AT THE PROVING GROUNDS

2 SESSIONS
JULY 18-20, 2024
JULY 20-22, 2024

*CLASSES OF 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028*

The National Player Combine (NPC) is an event like no other.  The focus is on athlete development coupled with objective and standardized assessments that measure for speed, strength, agility and skill execution in a high-level showcase camp environment on a world-class water-based surface.  At the NPC, there are no “Club Politics” and no “Coaches Favorites”.  Each athlete is objectively assessed utilizing electronic speed gates, jump mats, radar guns, the beep-test and numerous standardized skill stations.

The 3-day program includes physiological and field hockey skills assessments, small group play, and full field 11v11 play. The curriculum utilizes similar assessment and training methods as top Division 1 college programs and the USA Women’s National Team.

Upon completion of the event, athletes receive an online NPC Athlete Profile, which provides objective feedback and analytics on their personal performance throughout the NPC and how they matched up against other participating athletes and their specific class.

 

Open to any and all females in the Classes of 2025, 2026, 2027 & 2028.
Limited only by session capacity and position (field players/GKs)

Registration for the 2024 NPC will open Monday, January 15th
