Following the recent announcement that Field Hockey Canada (FHC) will be launching a new Targeted Athlete Program (TAP), this Community Communique is sent on behalf of the FHBC Board of Directors to reinforce FHBC’s commitment to support BC athletes as they move through the athlete pathway. FHBC remains committed to supporting BC athlete choices within athlete programming and FHBC will remain flexible in the ability to support athlete movement between PSO and NSO programming in this case, even if that means an athletes educated choice is to exit FHBC athlete programming completely.
FHBC currently has joint commitments with FHC to continue to partner in the delivery of performance stream programming for BC athletes throughout the remainder of the current season and into the Fall 2022. As this new FHC TAP program becomes better understood and is unveiled as a pilot program within the BC Lower Mainland in the coming weeks, FHBC will work with FHC to assist in the education and awareness for BC stakeholders. To this end, if any BC stakeholder or athlete wishes to find out more information, they can connect directly with the FHC TAP Program Lead, Jenn Beagan at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to FHBC Staff at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and FHBC can help facilitate your enquiry.
Yours in sport,
Field Hockey BC
