Will Umpire and Coach courses be rescheduled later this year?

Field Hockey Ontario will be working on rescheduling courses throughout the province once it is safe to do so, following all of the guidelines provided by Field Hockey Canada, all levels of government and public health authorities.

What will our return to play look like?

Our staff is currently working with Provincial Government and Public Health officials to begin mapping out what our return to play will look like. We know that the sport will not return at full speed, and will take time for full training and competition to resume. 

Once a road map of Field Hockey Ontario's return to play plan has been developed, it will be shared with the community.
