NEXTGEN OVERVIEW

The goal of the NextGen Program at Field Hockey Canada is to identify athletes that are 2-8 years away from making a significant contribution on the senior national stage. The FHC Men’s NextGen National Program is a collection of young athletes from across the country.  These players train and compete in their regional training centres located in BC, Alberta, and Ontario. It is from this athlete pool that coaches draw for Junior and Youth international competitions. The NextGen pathway serves as the development pipeline for the Senior Men’s National Team.

TALENT IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT

Field Hockey Canada is always evaluating and identifying young talent. The talent identification model allows Field Hockey Canada to use different stages of the year to identify and evaluate young talent by way of training camps, tours and talent ID sessions. The long-term development of Canada’s Targeted Athletes is a fundamental priority of this program. Our goal is to provide the best possible experiences for players to realize their potential of representing Canada on the International Stage.
