BACK THE PACK CAMP
In January 2022, our team — ranked 13th in the world — won BRONZE at the Pan American Cup and booked our ticket to the 2022 World Cup in Spain this July. This will be the first time in 28 years that our Canadian women’s team has qualified, but we need your help to get there!

The Canadian Women’s National Field Hockey Team will be hosting a camp in Duncan for any interested players. In addition to promoting the women’s program, the team is looking to raise money and a sense of excitement as the World Cup quickly approaches. As an amateur sport in Canada, our program has received no “Own the Podium” government funding since 2015 and largely relies on donations, sponsorships & athlete levies to continue. With the financial support the team can focus attention on training, competing and making Canada proud at the World Cup. We are extremely grateful for any and all support from our community.
