Virginia Beach, VA – USA Field Hockey and Team IP are pleased to announce, after the cancellation of the event last year, the 2022 National Indoor Festival (NIF) presented by Team IP will take place Friday, February 18 through Sunday, February 20 at the Virginia Beach Sports Center in Virginia Beach, Va.
The United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA) was founded in 1922 by Constance Applebee to govern women's field hockey in the United States. Six years later in 1928, the Field Hockey Association of America (FHAA) was founded to govern men's field hockey in the United States. In April 1993, the USFHA and FHAA merged to form the United States Field Hockey Association. Later that year, the name was changed to just USA Field Hockey. USA Field Hockey is now the national governing body for the sport of field hockey in the United States and is based out of Colorado Springs, Colo. Their mission statement is “GROW THE GAME. SERVE MEMBERS. SUCCEED INTERNATIONALLY.”
In its inaugural year, the National Indoor Festival offers U-12 Co-Ed, U-14 Girls, U-16 Girls, and U-19 divisions. The NIF has been modeled after the National Hockey Festival, where different age divisions can gather over a weekend in the same location to enjoy and play the sport. Pools have been created by similar team ratings, which hopefully will give teams a fairer matchup. All Pool winners will receive a NIF medal.
“We are excited to partner with USA Field Hockey to present the 2022 National Indoor Festival. We have a strong history with USA Olympic sports, and it is an honor to add USA Field Hockey to that list.” Randy Sparks Team IP CEO and Founder
