The 2022 Field Hockey Canada Conference is a three-day online event held from May 3–May 5, 2022. The second edition of this conference will aim to engage and inspire while relying on True Sport values, such as respect, fairness and inclusion.
Featuring various experts and speakers from diverse professional backgrounds, the event will encapsulate all aspects of the industry in a way that gives back to the community and celebrates the strength of our numbers.
Community and Culture – Learn how culture plays a critical role in the field hockey community and what we can do to better enhance it to become a more open, inclusive and united sport.
Mental Health and Wellness – Join the hockey community in a discussion about mental health and wellness from a sports perspective. Watch a presentation and engage in a workshop about mental wellness techniques and strategies for managing mental health challenges with your sport.
Officials and Umpires – The recruitment and retainment of officials and umpires is a critical challenge in the Canadian hockey community. Learn how can we, as a community, get more officials involved in the game and keep them involved. Hear from an international umpire and discuss the next steps for our national community.
Concussion Education – Join our sport medical professional presenters in a discussion and workshop covering concussion safety in hockey. Increase your understanding of the concussion protocol and make sure everyone on the field is aware.
Women in Field Hockey – Inclusivity, recruitment, and retention. Field Hockey Canada invites the community to have a constructive and collaborative workshop led by industry professionals and hockey community members about how we can best include and keep women in sport at all levels.
Session Planning – Look to improve how you run a practice session and plan a season-long schedule. Our ‘Session Planning’ presentation will be led by high-performance coaches with lots of experience creating and leading training sessions for athletes of all ages.
Clubs Roundtable – Share and learn about field hockey experiences throughout the country via this roundtable discussion, where we will address two prominent topics that our community currently faces.
