About the Field Hockey Academy

North Vancouver School District in partnership with Field Hockey BC (FHBC) offers the Field Hockey Academy, which provides programming for all students, regardless of their field hockey experience.

The program consists of a field hockey curriculum focused on holistic athlete development, including technical/tactical skills training, strength and conditioning, and performance education, and the Physical and Health Education curriculum established by the B.C Ministry of Education. Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.​​

Students seeking an opportunity to compete at a high- performance level will be constantly evaluated by FHBC Academy coaches regarding their potential within the performance pathway. Athletes demonstrating the appropriate skills and traits will be invited by our coaching staff for inclusion in FHBC's Provincial Team tryout structure for a selection opportunity for Team BC.
