 Board of Directors

 United States Field Hockey Association, Inc.
 Colorado Springs, Colorado

 We have audited the accompanying statement of financial position of the United States Field
 Hockey Association, Inc. as of December 31, 2005, and the related statements of activities and cash
 flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Association’s
 management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our
 audit. The financial statements of the United States Field Hockey Association, Inc. as of and for the
 year ended December 31, 2004, before they were retroactively restated for the matters discussed in
 Note 2, were audited by other accountants whose report dated March 18, 2005, expressed an
 unqualified opinion on those statements.

 We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United
 States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable
 assurance about whether the fInancial statements are free of material misstatement An audit
 includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the
 financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and
 significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement
 presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 In our opinion, the 2005 financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material
 respects, the financial position of United States Field Hockey Association, Inc. as of December 31,
 2005, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity
 with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 As discussed in Note 2, in 2005 the Association retroactively changed its accounting for its interest
 in the United States Field Hockey Foundation’s net assets.
