John Smythe’s introduction to the field hockey came at a young age as both his older brothers, Geoff and Iain, played club hockey with the Vancouver Hawks.

John not only went on to follow in his footsteps playing for the Hawks, but followed his brother Iain to the National Team. He made his senior debut in 2013 in Chile. In 2014, he was a part of the National Team that stunned at the Champions Challenge, beating hosts Malaysia in a shootout for the ages and taking home the silver medal.

In 2019, John was apart of the National Team that took down Ireland in the 2019 Olympic Qualifiers on home soil in West Vancouver.
