Exhibition Game and free Junior Coaching Clinic
In preparation for the 2103 Junior World Cup, the Canadian u21 Men’s Team is playing an exhibition game vs a All Star Team from West Vancouver, Burnaby & Tsawwassen. Athletes and staff will be running a free ‘coaching clinic’ for all junior club members [u10-‐ u17] prior to the game. Select athletes from all three Hockey clubs, with a number of current, ex international and Olympic athletes will then challenge their aspiring counterpart to what will be an exciting and action packed game of field hockey. Be sure to come join us and celebrate those junior athletes in their final preparation before departing for India.

In late 2012, the Men’s U-21 National team fought hard in the Pan-American Cup for a spot in the Jr. World Cup. With that massive goal accomplished, Field Hockey Canada expected to continue receiving support from Own the Podium for the men’s side. This was not the case and funding for the men’s program was cut. The funding received was extremely beneficial to the programs success. Without funding from the government, we (MJNT) are obliged to set up and run our own fundraising events.
This brings me to the topic of our T-Shirts. One of our team mates and fellow Falcon Andrew Kanerva set out to design team shirts. Our friends at Pacific Advertising did a fantastic job printing them for us. The shirts are a representation of all the hard work the players, coaches, and most importantly parents have put in over the years. Many of the players themselves – including me – have purchased a shirt to wear proudly.
The Shirts are $20 each, and we have sizes ranging from Youth Small to Adult Extra-Large.
Thank-you for your support!
