College Field Hockey Recruiting

Field Hockey Scholarships

Learn how to land a Field Hockey scholarship.

Field Hockey was first introduced as a NCAA championship sport in 1982. 11 other sports were added that year. For scholarship and recruiting purposes Field Hockey is considered a women's only sport. NCAA schools do not offer field hockey scholarships to men. Only one college in the NAIA has a Field Hockey program.

270 NCAA colleges offer field Hockey as a varsity sport across all three divisions.

NCAA Division I - Field hockey is played at 79 schools. 12 scholarships are available.

NCAA Division II - The game is only played at 29 colleges and there are 6.3 scholarships allocated to each Field hockey program.

NCAA Division III - 162 colleges have active field hockey programs. D3 schools to not offer athletic scholarships as such but other forms of financial aid are available.

Field Hockey traditionally had as many men participating as women, but the impact of Title IX and the need to address the gender imbalance in college sport saw the game explode in popularity across the United States. There are very few clubs outside of the education sector; most are high school and college clubs which are exclusively for women.

Here are some things you can do to improve your Field Hockey recruiting chances of playing at college level.

Get your name out there to college coaches - The reality of recruiting for non-revenue sports like field hockey is that you MUST actively promote yourself to the college coaches in order to be recruited. Field Hockey coaches do not have large recruiting budgets and rely on recruiting profiles and interested athletes reaching out to them directly. Create your free recruiting profile on BeRecruited today and connect with college field hockey coaches.

Have Strong Academics - Your grades are what will get you to college not your ability on the hockey field. Each NCAA division has different qualification criteria. A good GPA is vital and a college coach will always choose the strongest student over a weaker student when it comes to a scholarship. The coach wants to be sure that their athlete will remain academically eligible throughout college.
