Jamie Wallace was a relative latecomer to the sport of field hockey. He grew up playing ice hockey and has travelled the country competing on the ice.
He was introduced to field hockey by his friends at the age of 12 and has since made a quick ascension to the top of the sport in the country.
He joined the Canadian Junior National Program in the summer of 2014 and was one of the youngest players to represent Canada in two Under-21 series with the United States in June 2015 and January 2016.
He was then named to the Canadian Under-21 team for the 2016 Junior Men’s Pan American Championships – a Junior World Cup qualifier – in Toronto, Ontario. Wallace was then named to the 2018 senior World Cup team roster as the youngest player on the team. He competes for UBC Hockey Club and Almere Hockey Club. He played in the 2019 Olympic Qualifier, earning a game-saving stroke in the dying seconds.
