Sport Canada defines ‘Nextgen’ as athletes who are 5-8 years away from an Olympic/World Cup podium. The Field Hockey Canada Women’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 Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. It’s from this athlete pool that coaches draw for the Junior and Youth international competitions. The Nextgen pathway also serves as the development pipeline for the senior Women’s National Team.
