MAX Field Hockey recognizes some of the top High School field hockey players from each Region of the country for their exceptional performance during the 2015 season!
About the Selection Process:
The top 25 players from each region (30 for the PA/NJ Region) were selected based on a combination of criteria. An initial list of players to be considered was put together for each region based on the following:
-Local newspaper and conference recognitions
-MAX Field Hockey's previous recognitions, including but not limited to, Preseason Players-to-Watch and September Top Performers
-National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) All-Region and All-American recognitions
-Nominations were accepted and could be submitted by a player's coach, Athletic Director, parent, club coach or other individual, but players did NOT have to be nominated to be considered.
Additional research was then done on these lists of approximately 40-50 players for each region and the top players were selected. MAX Field Hockey aims to put together All-Region teams that are both as "true" as possible AND inclusive to promote the growth and support of the sport in all areas of the country. All-Region selection is focused on the players' performance during the Fall 2015 High School season. While additional criteria such as being a Junior National Team member, etc. may be considered in putting together the initial list of players, their performance during the 2015 High School season is what is considered during selections. (Note: MAX Field Hockey will be recognizing the top players in each class in the coming months and that will include all field hockey involvements!)
The Regional and National High School Players and Coaches of the Year will be announced in the new year. Make sure to follow MAX Field Hockey using the following to keep up with all High School news and releases:
