In our club young athletes 7-18 years of age will learn the fundamental techniques and skills needed to be dynamic and creative on the field.
The Club has qualified and trained NCCP coaches that are registered with Coach Association of Canada and have both University and National team experience. We strive for coach education and encourage all coaches involved in our club to become trained and certified coaches in the appropriate areas and follow Field Hockey Canada’s LTHD- Long Term Hockey Development Model.
