All benefits of 7-Test Super Series to go to Junior Development

October 8, 2009

The Organizing Committee of the 7-Test Super Series between Canada and India announce today that all profits derived from the Series will be directed towards junior development initiatives.

All the net profits derived from the sale of tickets for the seven matches or for the Gala Dinner will be directed towards the development of the Canadian Junior National Program and the establishment of an Academy of Hockey at the University of British Columbia, with the goal to develop young players and prepare them to play on the senior National Team.

In the last years, the junior programs have been heavily self-funded, putting additional strain on the development of talented young players. The announcement by the 7-Test Super Series Organizing Committee is the first step towards the establishment of a wider support system, made up of Alumni and Patrons, assisting with the ongoing funding of the future Canadian National Team players.

The seven matches will be played on October 9 and 11 in Victoria and on October 14, 16, 18, 22 and 24 in Surrey. The Gala Dinner takes place at the Riverside Grand Ballroom in Richmond on Saturday October 17th.

Tickets for the matches and for the dinner are available on the Field Hockey Canada web site @ and on the special event web site @
