Field Hockey Canada Team Managers

Team Managers are integral in our ability to perform on the international stage. We are looking for motivated and organized hockey hearts that are willing to serve one of our national hubs, or one of our junior national teams.

These are volunteer positions that have Field Hockey Canada support, mentorship and connect into our Team of Teams mentality, supporting the Field Hockey Canada mission, vision and goals. The purpose of the Team of Teams initiative is to connect our Canadian hockey community. It is an approach to how we are structured, how we operate and how we live our values. It recognizes that we are united by the sport that we love and can accomplish amazing feats while working together.


Some of these roles have the opportunity to tour with one of our national teams which is a really exciting element to team management. We also have national ‘hubs’ where we are looking for specific admin support with scheduling, tracking and communication and requires no travel.

The Tour Manager position can be structured around your day job or studies, and travel would be limited. Tour dates are known well in advance and the logistics around these tours would be handled by our core team at Field Hockey Canada. Your job would entail the communication thereof, bridging the gap between our lean Field Hockey Canada core staff and our athletes.
