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.
