Each Fall High School season, MAX Field Hockey accepts nominations and feedback for various rankings and awards. This page outlines how to submit feedback and nominations and the deadlines by which to do so.
SUBMIT HIGH SCHOOL TEAM RANKING FEEDBACK
2019 High School Season Outlook Form (For Preseason Rankings)
We are already working on our 2019 High School Preseason Team Rankings and Features! The following form is for individual coaches to provide us with information on their team as they move on from the 2018 season and look forward to the 2019 season. Preseason Rankings will be released at the of August/beginning of September. We would like to have these forms submitted prior to Wednesday, August 21 to give us ample time to finalize our rankings and create the corresponding features.
Who should submit this form? Any coach who believes their team belongs in the Preseason Top 20 Rankings for their region!
MAX Field Hockey always welcomes productive High School Team Ranking feedback from any individual involved in the High School game (coaches, ADs, umpires, parents, players, etc.). We take all productive feedback into consideration.
Please submit feedback at anytime by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When submitting feedback, please explain your relationship to the team and the more details/info you can provide us with the better. If you believe a team that is not ranked should be ranked or that a team should be ranked higher than it is, please provide us with your reasoning and include the team’s schedule/results. We are especially looking for quality wins over quality/ranked opponents.
We will be releasing team rankings according to the following schedule in 2019. Each week’s rankings will include games through the prior Sunday.

The Selection Process
We often get questions about our selection process and how players can be nominated for one of these awards. Here are the basics. We always accept nominations for these awards. At the bottom of this page, there is a link where anyone can submit a player or coach nomination (HS coach, club coach, parent, AD, fan, etc.). This does not mean a player or coach HAS to be nominated to receive an award. We do our own leg work and follow teams and players closely year after year. We do not want a deserving player to miss out because their coach forgets to or typically doesn’t submit nominations like this. That being said, we do prefer to receive player nominations from high school coaches, but we will consider all nominations.
We get a wide range of quality in the nominations we receive. The more detailed and complete nominations are much easier to consider and tend to make our list, so if you believe you have a deserving player or coach, make sure to submit a complete and quality nomination form.
We will be accepting nominations for All-Region Players and State Coaches of the Year. Any of the additional awards will come from those lists. Something to keep in mind- these are major awards. For the All-Region Award, players being nominated should be one of the top players in her state. They should be recognized at the local and state level as such (All-State, All-Conference, etc.). While those awards for this Fall may not be out yet, they should be top candidates. Also, these are High School awards for the 2018 season. While we may know of USA Field Hockey selections, past HS awards, etc.- these are going to be awarded based on the players performance this Fall season and that is the information we are most interested in on the nomination forms.
Deadline to submit nominations: Tuesday, November 19, 2019
*Please do not submit nominations prior to the end of the player or coach’s season. We are looking for complete information (stats, record, team finish) when considering these.
