Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q1: WHAT AGE GROUP DO I TRY OUT FOR?

 

Field Hockey Ontario (“FHO”) teams will use these age groups for teams in 2022:

  • Athletes born in 2004 or later should try out for the U18 Age Group

  • Athletes born in 2006 or later should try out for the U16 Age Group

 

Q2: CAN I TRY OUT FOR A HIGHER AGE GROUP THAN MY AGE?

 

Yes, if you want to, you can try out for a higher age group than your age. However, each athlete may only try out for one team.

 

Q3: HOW MANY TEAMS CAN I TRY OUT FOR?

 

Each athlete may only try out for one team.

 

Q4: WILL U16 AND U18 TEAMS BE TIERED OR BY REGION FOR 2022?

 

U16 Girls and U18 Girls teams will be tiered (A and B) for 2022.

 

Q5: HOW MANY TEAMS PER AGE GROUP WILL THERE BE?

 

The number of teams Ontario brings to the National Championships will in part depend on the number of athletes that attend trials. The years that Ontario hosts the National Championships, we will have three (3) teams if we have the numbers per age group (females only).

The years that Ontario is not hosting, we will travel with two (2) teams per age group (females only).

 

Q6: Do I have to register for FHO membership to try out for FHO?

Yes, you need to be a registered member of FHO to tryout. Please register here. If you are not affiliated with a club, please select “no club affiliation.” Upon checkout, if you do not already have an FHO membership, a membership fee will be automatically applied.

 

Q7: Why do I need to be a registered member of FHO to try out?

All players that try out must be a registered FHO member to ensure that all athletes are covered under FHO’s insurance policy in case of injury.

Q8: What are the expected costs of playing provincially?

More details regarding the budget will be released after selection. FHO will be working with teams to ensure that they can fundraise and make Nationals as affordable as possible.
 

We would love to have individuals and clubs involved in the fundraising process, and if you're interested in participating please email info@fieldhockeyontario.com with the subject ‘Fundraising for Nationals’.
 

Q9: Can a club enter the National Championships?
