2022 NPC ATHLETE PROFILES ARE READY!

All of the NPC Data is compiled for all 3 sessions and every athlete’s online profile is now available!  You should have received an email when your account was created with instructions on how to comple your account creation and create a password.  If you did not receive this email, please email us at admin@maxfieldhockey.com and we will help you get setup.  To login to your account, go to the “LOGIN” option at the right of the top menu bar.

When you login and access your online profile, you will see an option for “My Account.”  This is where you can select whether to keep your evaluation private or make it public.  Once public, you can share the url with your coach, trainer, or anyone you would like.  If you would like to keep the information private and for your own use, that is totally up to you and that is how it is setup by default.

If you have any issues with your profile, please email us at admin@maxfieldhockey.com and we will be happy to help.

2021 NPC Data: We are still working on how to display 2021 data for those of you who attended both 2021 and 2022 so you are able to compare your results.  We hope to have this sorted in the next couple of days.  The goal is to have your 2021 data display under your 2022 profile.  We will post a note here when we have figured that out.

If you check out further down on this homepage you will see the Class Profile and Assessment Analytics (Field Player and Goalkeeper) broken down by class.  You can use this data to compare your scores and times to your class high, average, low and score breakdown.

The mission of The NPC Athlete Profile is to gather information about an individual’s current performance in order to provide meaningful and customized feedback to the athlete for continued growth, development, and investment during the athlete’s career.

The assessment is relative to peers and spans a complete spectrum of athletic qualities necessary for success in the game of field hockey.

The assessment provides a current projected trajectory at the next level of the sport based upon the snapshot captured at the NPC. (Important note: This trajectory is contingent upon observed performance within a 3-day window of time.  It is meant to provide the athlete with meaningful information about how they are perceived in each area evaluated and to direct next steps in their development.  The assessment is based only upon the 3-day National Player Combine).

 


THE NPC ATHLETE PROFILE


The assessment tool to optimize your
field hockey development

 

THE NPC Athlete Profile will provide insight to participating athletes and parents on the following questions:

  • What areas of the game am I strongest in?
  • What specific areas of the game do I need to improve?
  • What is the standard necessary to play at the next level?  What level am I currently at?
  • How do I compare with my peers nationally?
  • Where is my time and money best invested to develop my game?  In general, what types of camps, clinics, and tournaments should I do based upon my goals and development needs?
  • How am I perceived as an athlete, teammate, and competitor during the 3-day NPC snapshot?

The assessment is divided into five areas critical to success in the game of field hockey:

Physical Attributes
Technical Skills Under Pressure
Tactical Awareness (Hockey IQ, Game Sense)
Competitiveness
Development Potential

Each area is divided into specific attributes and skills.
These will be detailed later in the NPC Athlete Profile Handbook.

Athletes are assessed on each of the specific attributes/skills during the NPC.
The table below provides specific descriptions and classifications for each rating.

Scale 4 3 2 1
Description Significantly Limits Performance Needs Improvement Strength Super Strength
Next Level Classification Possible D2/D3/D1 Club Probable D2/D3
(Possible D1)
Probable D1
(Possible Top D1)
Probable Top 10-20 DI
(Possible International)

 

Class analytics will be provided for each of the classes based upon the assessment.  Class analytics provide insight on how an individual athlete compares to the rest of their age group in the specific areas.
