News and Announcements
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!
