MAX Field Hockey is excited to release updated and complete Top 150 player rankings for the Class of 2022!
Previously the Class of 2022 was a Top 100 Players to Watch (View Here).
About the selection process:
The following is an overview of how our players being considered list was compiled (please note that for a player to be considered and ranked, they did NOT have to be/make one of the following)- players could have made one of the following in 2017-2020 (we have already been tracking these things for this class for the past 3 years!):
- Current Junior National Team Rosters (Indoor & Outdoor)
- Junior National Camp Participants
- Stars & Stripes Elite Game Participants
- NFCs & AAU Junior Olympics
- Under Armour Select Game
- MAX Field Hockey High School Awards
With our players being considered list compiled, we then went through all the feedback we received from both high school and club coaches and also from various Top 20 Division I coaches and individuals who work with and/or recruit the top players across the country. We read and consider ALL feedback we receive. [Learn how to make a player recommendation in the future] We then looked through 250 player profiles in our database one by one to see if there were any deserving players we needed to add to the list and to gain further information on the players we already had on our list.
From there- we made comparisons of players’ accolades, selections, level of competition, feedback, and filtered through our list of what ended up being 300+ players being considered to get to our final top 150 players. There is no formula to share- player rankings are subjective and we try our best to be fair and comprehensive in ranking players from all parts of the country. As always, we may have missed some deserving players who just don’t have the accolades, selections or comparable information to go by yet. We will do this class again next year and there will be several opportunities for deserving players to be added to the list!
For ranked players: if you want to add a missing photo or if you create a new player profile and would like us to add a link to it for your ranking or if you have a college commitment to add, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We try to keep up with these but they do not automatically update on that content.
