Webber Naturals sponsors National Teams

February 8, 2013 | Field Hockey Canada |

Field Hockey Canada is pleased to announce a new sponsorship from Webber Naturals, who will become the exclusive supplier of natural health products to our National Team athletes. 

“We are very excited to be working alongside Field Hockey Canada, to provide health products that will help Canada’s best field hockey players train, recover, and perform at their very best” says Don Bird, Executive Vice President at W.N. Pharmaceuticals. “Canada has a tradition of excellence in field hockey, and we are excited to be working alongside these athletes as they start their new Olympic cycle.”

Don, himself a former manager of Canada’s National Team (including the 1990 World Cup in Lahore Pakistan), is also the older brother to two-time field hockey Olympian, Ian Bird.

“As we build towards the Pan American Games in 2015, and the 2016 Olympic Games, both the Men’s and Women’s National Teams will be going through intense, periodized training schedules” says Scott Tupper, Captain of the Men’s National Team. “Partnering with Webber Naturals now means that both of our Canadian squads will have access to the right supplements needed to train and perform at our peak. This is a win-win for all athletes at Field Hockey Canada.”

Webber Naturals are part of a bigger family of natural health products (WN Pharmaceuticals Ltd.), made in Canada at one of North America’s largest state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities for health supplements. Their wide range of natural health products can be found in neighbourhood pharmacies, grocery stores and other retailers across Canada.
