ABOUT US 

Thank you for checking out our website. If you're looking to play field hockey in New York, you've come to the right place.

NEFHA is the largest adult field hockey association in the United States. Our league is home to both men's and women's teams, with players from across the world participating.

The level is competitive, but at the same time social and accommodating to those of all abilities. League games take place in both the fall and spring. The games are played at Columbia University and Wagner College's water-base artificial turfs.

Hopefully this site provides you with all the information you need. If you’re interested in getting involved in the league or have any further questions, please do feel free to contact us.
