Congratulations to Victoria Zaccagnini who has been selected to join Field Hockey Canada’s U16 National Team. She will be travelling to BC this month to play a 4 game series against the U16 team from Field Hockey USA. Way to go, Victoria!

As this is a self-funded program and the associated costs are high, Victoria could use our support on this new path of her field hockey journey. FHC has set up an Adopt-an-Athlete program which allows for fundraising towards her Next Gen pursuits and here is the page that Victoria has set up for her fundraising efforts: https://www.canadahelps.org/me/neRnWfHf

Thanks to all who consider providing support, and good luck to you, Victoria!
