IMPORTANT: U15 Boys and Girls Mainland Regional Trials new dates!

Due to conflicting dates with the Field Hockey Canada Olympic Qualifier on October 27th, we had to make some changes to the schedule of the U15 Northwest and Southeast Girls and U15 Mainland Boys Regional Trials.

We made this decision because a) we want to encourage all of our athletes to have the opportunity to attend this exciting event and b) FHBC staff will be taking on responsibilities at the Olympic Qualifier that will render us unable to execute trials on the same day.

Therefore, we have re-scheduled the on-field skills assessment to Sunday, November 3rd, at Eric Hamber, and the athletes will run their yo-yo test at the Regional Intake Session on Saturday, November 9th, at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

  • U15 Girls Northwest: November 3, 4:30-6pm @Eric Hamber, and November 9, 8am-12pm @Richmond Olympic Oval
  • U15 Girls Southeast: November 3, 6-7:30pm @Eric Hamber, and November 9, 8am-12pm @Richmond Olympic Oval
  • U15 Boys Mainland: November 3, 7:30-9pm @Eric Hamber, and November 9, 8am-12pm @Richmond Olympic Oval

With all that in mind, we have extended the registration period until October 30th and postponed the Program Levy payment deadline to November 27th. Selections will be made by Wednesday, November 13th and training schedule will remain as is.

You can see the updated Program Overview for each region below:
U15 Girls Northwest / U15 Girls Southeast / U15 Boys Mainland

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this adjustment. If you have any questions, please contact our Athlete Program Manager, Donna Cumming, at dcumming@fieldhockeybc.com.

Canada’s national teams will play Ireland for a spot in Tokyo 2020; men will play in BC

FIH Olympic Qualifier Draw occurred this Monday, September 9, and set a matchup between Canada and Ireland for both women’s and men’s national team. These encounters will decide who qualifies for next year’s Summer Olympics; whoever wins the two-game series will book their ticket to Tokyo 2020.

Ranked top-10 in the world, Canada men’s national team will have the advantage of playing the series at home. FHBC is excited to be a part of the FIH Olympic Qualifier and assist hosting this amazing event. The men’s series will happen on October 26 and 27,  in the Lower Mainland (location yet to be confirmed). The women will play in Dublin, Ireland, on November 2 and 3.

Since earning silver medals at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, both Canadian teams have been preparing for this decisive moment. The women secured their spot in the Olympic Qualifier after finishing second in this year’s FIH Hockey Series in Valencia in June, while the men got it by winning the Hockey Series Finals in Kuala Lumpur, in April.
