Unpacking Sport – Presentation Series

March 7, 2022 | Field Hockey Canada |

New speaker series explores sport, culture, and community

The Field Hockey Centre is presenting a series called Unpacking Sport which considers sport, culture, and community. The first guest is Dr. Courtney Szto, author of Changing on the Fly: Hockey Through the Voices of South Asian Canadians. In her book, Courtney dives headfirst into Canadian ice hockey’s not-so-multi culture. This refreshingly open and honest take may be at first hard for some to hear, but in confronting these truths we can find our way forward. As the nation and our communities across the country tackle the difficult conversations towards the goal of change for a better sport and better society, we invite you to join this conversation.

The event will take place Thursday March 17th at 6:30pm EST via Teams.


About The Field Hockey Centre

The Field Hockey Centre is a newly created not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement and growth of field hockey in Ottawa and the surrounding areas. The Field Hockey Centre announced its first fundraising initiative to support the construction of two world-class pitches.  

The foundation for this group of devoted volunteers comes from one of the organization’s primary partners, the Nepean Nighthawks Field Hockey ClubThe Nighthawks, founded in 2002, are a field hockey powerhouse that started off as a small local club in Ontario, that has experienced exponential growth over the years. Faced with these unprecedented levels of growth, the Nighthawks’ registration and programming is at its maximum capacity due to a lack of local field hockey facilities. This ground-breaking project will provide a new site to address the recent explosion of field hockey participation in Ottawa by offering more space for programming to play.
