During the 2016-17 school year, the Board of Control approved an extension of the KHSAA sponsorship of Field Hockey for a three-year period. During this period, the current participating teams were charged with promotion of the sport and attempting to measure its growth within the membership. The current participating schools have done an admirable job and have offered to come to different parts of the state and do instructional clinics, answer questions, and show the value of this sport that has been played in our state for more than fifty years and represents an opportunity for increased participation by female students.

In addition to these efforts, we are excited to promote three additional opportunities to expand knowledge about this sport in conjunction with the NCAA Field Hockey Championship Games being held in Louisville the weekend of November 18 and 19 in events co-sponsored by USA Field Hockey, the National Field Hockey Coaches Association, the Kentucky Field Hockey Coaches Association and the Louisville Sports Commission.. 

One activity, being held at the Swain Student Activities Center at U of L, is an opportunity to interact with officials (umpires) to discuss the sport and its opportunities. Also at Swain will be an opportunity to interact with coaches from all levels, . Rounding out the activities will be a Learn to Play Day session at Mercy Academy with three-time Olympian Lauren Crandall. All are described below.

Thanks to all the great sponsors of these outstanding opportunities to showcase the sport.
