The field is set.

This September 20-22nd, 36 of the top High School field hockey teams from across the nation will come together at The Proving Grounds in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania with a common goal: to “Prove it on the Field.”  These best of the best field hockey teams will travel from all 6 regions, 12 different states, and public/private/charter schools ranging anywhere from 300 students to 4,000 plus students.  11 of the 36 teams were ranked in the Top 25 in the nation in 2018, including the 2018 National Champions Eastern Regional (Voorhees, NJ), and 5 additional Top 10 teams.  The level of play will be premier and the competition will be fierce.  The 2019 MAX Field Hockey National High School Invitational is slated to be a one-of-a-kind field hockey event!
