We are please to announce that we have negotiated preferred pricing from 3 local equipment vendors. Ak Pro, Field Hockey Shack and Just Field Hockey. Each of these vendors brings something unique to the field hockey community. All three vendors offer products to meet your field hockey requirements: Sticks, shoes, shin guards, mouthguards, stick bags an various accessories and clothing for both on and off the field. But each carries different brands and services that may be preferred by our members.
As well, two of these vendors (Field Hockey Shack and Just Field Hockey) are offering a royalty on each sale made to Falcons that are either for available to apply to Falcon’s shared equipment (e.g. Goalie gear) or a contribution to the general funds that help keep registrations fees down.
The attached document is a summary page that outlines how you can take advantage of these special pricing deals. As well on the Falcons Home Page you can find the document under the links section. You can also can also link directly to their websites under the Sponsors section in the bottom left hand corner of the page.
