About the Field Hockey Academy

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

The Field Hockey Academy is led by FHBC and is complimentary to FHBC's Regional Program. As a result, all Academy players, provided they meet the selection criteria and program policies, will be eligible to compete in the Regional Tournament where Provincial Team selections are made.

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.

Who can Participate?

The Field Hockey Academy is open to students in Grades 8-12.

Participation in the Field Hockey Academy will not affect a student's eligibility to play for their home school's Field Hockey team.
