Field Hockey Canada has recently launched their Team of Teams movement. The purpose of this initiative is to connect the Canadian hockey community and unite it through a shared love of the sport. March 22nd to March 26th marks the first Team of Teams celebration week which will highlight and celebrate umpires and officials.

Here’s how you can get involved and contribute:

  • Share Stories and Connect with FHC – If you have some excellent stories to share, or have ideas on how to highlight and engage members of our field hockey community on this topic, our friends at Field Hockey Canada would like to hear from you. Use hashtags #fieldhockeycanada and #FHCTeamofTeams to connect.
  • Nominate and Recognize – If you have a dedicated official or umpire in your area that you want to highlight, nominate them by completing the Grassroots Umpire and Official Nomination Form by the submission deadline of Friday, March 19, 2021!

UPDATE AS OF JUNE 30, 2020 – Field Hockey Canada has advised that the insurance broker is continuing to negotiate on our behalf and indicates it may be another few weeks before this is resolved.

By now, many of you have seen emails and information in the news about the reopening of sport and other amenities in our province. Although we are all excited to get back to field hockey we need to have a prepared and safe return plan.

Important Reminder

*Field Hockey Canada has NOT lifted its ban on all organized hockey programming and activities.

FHC has no insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.* We are working closely with FHC and the other provinces to provide a safe return to hockey as soon as possible.

If you are coaching players, you will be personally liable for any injuries or illnesses incurred by the players.

We anticipate a comprehensive COVID-insurance policy to be available and will notify you when this happens. You must have attestations, waivers and be fully insured, including COVID indemnification before you return to play.

Kind Regards,
Field Hockey Alberta, CLFHA, CJFH
