We are the Canadian Junior Women’s National Field Hockey Team and we want you to join our journey! Our team is comprised of ‘Next Gen’ athletes who are 5-8 years away from an Olympic/World Cup podium. We are a part of Field Hockey Canada’s Women’s Next Gen national program. Our players train and compete in their regional training centres located in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec. It is from this athlete pool that coaches draw for Junior and Youth international competitions. The Next Gen pathway also serves as the development pipeline for the Senior Women’s National Team.
This year we earned the top spot out of the Pan Americas by winning the Junior Pan American Championships in August 2021, defeating Chile, Argentina and Uruguay en route to a gold medal. Argentina had won seven of the previous eight iterations of this event, with USA winning one in 2008. This year’s win will go down in history as the first Canadian Junior Pan American gold for any Team Canada. This is also the first outdoor Pan American gold for any Canadian women’s program.

The Junior World Cup was supposed to take place in Potchefstroom, South Africa from December 5 to December 16, 2021. Pan American rivals, Argentina, Uruguay and USA were all to be in the field in Potchefstroom come December. Canada even had a date with Uruguay in pool play.
In November 2021, our Women’s Junior National Team went to South Africa for the Junior World Cup. Due to the covid-19 omicron variant, the tournament was postponed, and the team had to stay for two weeks until they could come home. This video captures some of their time in RSA and acts as a thank you to all the people, partners and supporters who helped get the team home!
Recently, the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has officially announced and confirmed that 16 teams will participate in the upcoming FIH Hockey Women’s Junior World Cup taking place from 1 to 12 April 2022 at the North-West University (NWU) of Potchefstroom, South Africa and Field Hockey Canada has made the decision to send our team to represent our country.
We need your help to get us to South Africa this April, and we invite you to be a part of it. For more information on the Junior World Cup check out their Event Page.
