6 New Faces to Join Team USA in September

Six newcomers will join the Team USA Women's Senior National Team full-time in September, following the Summer 2016 Olympics in Rio.  All six players finished up their collegiate playing careers this past Fall and were selected by Head Coach Craig Parnham and his coaching staff after their participation in a USA team trial at the Nook in the beginning of January. 

MAX Field Hockey looks forward to increasing our coverage of the USA Women's National Team and helping the field hockey community connect to these incredible athletes and role models!

Congratulations to the following players on being selected to represent Team USA!
