Field Hockey in the United States

Field hockey in the United States is a sport which has only limited popular support.[1][2] The sport is traditionally a female dominated sport.[3] However, in the United States of America, there are few field hockey clubs, most play taking place between high school or college sides, almost entirely of females. The strength of college field hockey reflects the impact of Title IX which mandated that colleges should fund men's and women's sports programmes comparably.

The men's and women's national team have had limited success.[4][5][6]

Pennsylvania is a hotbed for field hockey in the United States.[7][8]
