We would like to welcome our summer student event coordinators: Nat Gillard and Jeff Gould. They will be assisting in running and coordinating the 2018 Field Hockey National Championships and the 2018 Ontario Summer Games. Providing these students a summer student experience was made possible by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
Please see below their bios:
“My name is Nat Gillard and I am an intern working for Field Hockey Ontario this summer. I am a university student at Carleton College, a liberal arts college located in Northfield, Minnesota. At Carleton, I am a Political Science and International Relations major. I am a member of the women’s varsity soccer team and women’s lacrosse team. I am also the sports editor and a writer for the school newspaper, and love writing articles for the paper in my free time. During the school year, I work at Carleton’s Recreation Centre and am actively involved in a few of Carleton’s Senate Committees. Prior to Carleton, I attended Havergal College in Toronto. At Havergal, I was a sports prefect, and organized and led all major sports related events at my school. I grew up playing competitive soccer in Toronto, while also playing for and captaining the soccer team at Havergal. I have a passion for sports and love working at sporting events. My favourite experience was when I worked as an intern for NBC Sports this past February at the 2018 Super Bowl in Minneapolis, Minnesota!”
"My name is Jeffrey Gould. I am currently going into my fourth year of study at Brock University in the Sport Management program. Although this is my first time working with Field Hockey Ontario, I do have past provincial, national and international event experience with Ontario University Athletics and the OUA Rowing Championships, Hockey Canada and the RBC Cup and the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, all in event coordination roles. I am extremely excited to embark on this internship experience and look forward to ensuring smooth, safe and fun events for all FHO tournament participants. I hope that in aiding with event coordination I can help grow the sport of field hockey across the nation."
They look forward to meeting you at the 2018 National Championships and Ontario Summers Games! Thanks again to the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, for without your support we wouldn't be able to grow the sport and provide hands on learning opportunities for students!
