by USA Field Hockey

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. USA Field Hockey's Nexus Team has officially announced the dates for the 2023 Junior Nexus Championship (Junior NXC) and Senior Nexus Championship (Senior NXC), both presented by Osaka Hockey. The two events will take place at the Virginia Beach Regional Training Center in Virginia Beach, Va.

The Nexus Championship (NXC), presented by Osaka Hockey, will undergo a few exciting changes that will improve the event and overall experience of athletes, families and fans. As announced in spring 2022, Nexus now encompasses the entire junior and senior pathway. Junior Nexus (formerly just Nexus) is for athletes who are 11 years old and older who are not yet enrolled in college; while Senior Nexus (formerly High Performance Centers) is for athletes who have enrolled in college or older. The Championships for both divisions will take place from July 6 through 16.


Moving forward Junior Nexus will be comprised of the following age groups to align with advancement to the Junior U.S. National Teams and international competition schedule: U-14, U-16, U-18, U-21 for both men and women. The Junior NXC will now hold competitions in those four age groups for the summer 2023 and beyond. Once registered for the program, USA Field Hockey’s contact management system Webpoint will automatically sort athletes into their respective age groups for advancements.


Selections for the Junior and Senior Nexus Championship will take place in June 2023.
