As the 2019 school year comes to a close, MAX Field Hockey begins working on the next round of Player Rankings. The next round of ranking will be released at the end of the summer and will include players from the Classes of 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and a Players Watch List for the Class of 2023.
We often get questions on how a new player can be considered for our player rankings and how existing ranked players can move up in the rankings. To be considered and to ensure that we have your latest information and accolades to go off of when making our decisions, please create and update a new Player Profile (top menu bar, Player Profiles). We updated our player profile system this spring, so if you had a profile in our old system, you will need to create a new one. To learn more about our new system and how to create/update a profile, click here. If you have any issues creating/updating your profile, email us: email@example.com.
We are also now accepting feedback from coaches on potential players that we should consider. This feedback is not required for a player to be considered, but we do look at and factor in any feedback we receive. There is no hard deadline to submit feedback, but we will begin working on these by the end of June, so to ensure your feedback is considered, please submit it by the end of June.
To submit feedback/recommendations- email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the players name, grad year, state, high school, club, college commitment (if one) and your relationship/experience working with the player. We appreciate field hockey specific feedback on the player and please try to be specific in comparison to other players, club members, conferences, the state you are in, schools recruiting the player, etc. We are looking for the TOP players across the country and need specific and relevant information to consider that player to be among the top players in her state, region and country for her age group.
The following is a generalization of the type of athlete you might find ranked in each category (these are not requirements):
*Top recruits in the country- being heavily recruited by Top 10/20 college programs already
*Members of a Junior National Team or just missed the cut
*High School Americans, All-Region, All-state players
*Already is or will be one of the top players in her state
*Not a player who is under the radar, these players have already established themselves to be one of the top players in their class
*Highly recruited/top recruits in the country- expected to commit to ~Top 20 college programs
*Junior National Camp participants, Stars & Stripe selections or just missed the cut
*High School All-American, All-Region, All-State, All-Conference
*Expected to make an impact at the top college level eventually
Next 50/Watch List
*Many of the same achievements as Top 50 but newer to the scene or to our radar, just missed the Top 50 cut, or still developing
*Solid Division I potential
*Player we see as having potential to move up our list in the future
IMPORTANT: If you are submitting feedback on a player who is not yet ranked, please make sure they have completed a MAX Field Hockey Player Profile so that we have all of their info.
