Introducing the MAX WFHL!

MAX Field Hockey is excited to announce the all-new MAX Women's Field Hockey League (MAX WFHL), the first women's professional field hockey league in the United States!

Before you get too excited, let us clarify: the MAX WFHL is NOT a real organization or league and we do not have any plans of making it one.  We have created the MAX WFHL for fun and so that we can do what we all love to do most: speculate!  In February, we will be having a MAX WFHL Draft Week where we will cover a mock-draft of the current college seniors.  Ultimately, we will be selecting and ranking the top 36 players coming out of the senior class, with some conditions.  Our coverage will include everything from draft lists, player evaluations, the "Fan's First Round Picks" where you get to vote for your first round draft picks, and more!

Keep reading to learn more about the MAX WFHL and the 2016 Draft, and stay tuned for our next article in which we will introduce our MAX WFHL Professional Analyst, explain more about how the draft will work, and begin to breakdown the draft list!
