Field Updates - Please Read

Due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control, Field 1 at the FH Training Center is closed for repairs. The NFHL Fall Championship will be played at two locations (2 miles apart):

Because we are able to now use three fields, the following changes will take place:

  • Games will increase in length from 21 minute halves to 25 minute halves.
  • The quarterfinals (first round of playoffs) will take place on Saturday night, immediately following pool play.
  • Playoff teams will be announced on Saturday at 3:45pm, and all teams will be required to confirm their spot immediately.
  • Quarterfinals will begin at 4:45pm on Saturday.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you in advance for being flexible – we look forward to a great tournament!
