USFHL is officially recognized by USA Field Hockey as the adult league structure and sanctions the adult National Club Championship to name the best adult club teams in the United States in 2022. Starting in 2023, the USFHL Adult National Club Championship will have regional qualifiers through Regional Club Championships. The mission of USFHL is to grow participation and engagement for more local options for adults by encouraging and supporting local organized field hockey team competition and is led by local field hockey leaders. USFHL piloted College Summer Series this summer for college aged athletes to play through fun, organized competitive local adult organizations. This program is designed to prevent the drop-off in participation after graduating and build a bridge from college to lifetime engagement through local adult field hockey after they graduate.
