2020 MAX Field Hockey High School National Invitational
PROVE IT ON THE FIELD at The Proving Grounds
September 25-27, 2020
We believe the responsible thing to do at this time is to cancel the 2020 MAX Field Hockey High School National Invitational. It is a bit heartbreaking for us to do so. Last year’s event was one of the coolest things we’ve been a part of- the high level of competition, the incredible match-ups, the school spirit and sportsmanship displayed- it really was a one-of-a-kind event. But unfortunately with the current COVID landscape, we are going to have to wait until 2021 for round 2.
Thinking through the logistics of teams traveling from 12 different states, it’s just too much and doesn’t seem smart during these times. We’ve already had about 1/3 of teams who are unable to attend cancel, and we anticipate teams from other states and conferences to follow soon.
What this means:
1- We will refund all payments in full over the next week or 2.
2- Registered teams’ invitations will be extended to the 2021 event.
3- We are still considering the idea of a potential more informal play day that weekend. We will track the COVID situation over the next month or so and make a decision by early/mid-August as to whether we will move forward with that or not. We could potentially do a second weekend as well. As soon as we make a decision and/or have an update, we will share it on the site, email and over social media.
If you have any questions, please let us know: [email protected]. We appreciate your patience and hope everyone understands that safety is our #1 priority. We will get back out there and the 2021 MAX Field Hockey High School National Invitational will be better than ever!
