History[edit]

The United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA) was founded in 1922, to govern women's field hockey in the United States.[3] Six years later, in 1928, the Field Hockey Association of America (FHAA) was founded, to govern men's field hockey in the U.S.[3]

In April 1993, the USFHA and FHAA merged, to form the United States Field Hockey Association (USFHA).[3][4]
