Athlete Development Program


The FHBC Athlete Development Program (ADP) is geared towards the holistic development of the player. This program offers an optional opportunity for athletes in the development to performance stream to engage in continuous training sessions for a 6-week period. 

The curriculum, aligned to the National Field Hockey Skills Matrix, will cover a wide range of technical skills and basic gameplay concepts, as well as elements of fitness information and sports science. 

The ADP is a complimentary athlete development opportunity to FHBC’s Technical Development Program which differs in its prescriptive curriculum that focuses on a specific field hockey skill or skills. FHBC plans to offer Technical Development Program opportunities for athletes in the New Year. 

The FHBC Athlete Development Program and Technical Development Program are not associated with the FHBC Provincial Program Evaluation and Talent Identification Pathway.

Chris Roydhouse (Head Coach)

My name is CJ Roydhouse and I am the Head Coach of Team BC U16 Boys for the 2nd year in a row. My passion for field hockey goes back to my younger days where I grew up playing with Vancouver Hawks and joining BC and JMNT teams. My dad Mark Roydhouse played a huge role keeping me involved in field hockey and gave me so many opportunities. He is the main reason I continue to give back to the field hockey community, Whether it is coaching at the club level with BLFHC & VHFHC, organizing the new Metro Vancouver Pro League on and off-field events, or recently managing the JMNT in Barbados 2023 I am always looking to give back to the field hockey community in any way.
