WVFHC Fall High Performance Program

▲Top

WVFHC is pleased to announce a High Performance program for U14, U16 and U18 Girls this fall. 

(Please click for more information)

 

Our HP sessions will allow players to experience an international style of coaching and training as they work on match-related skills in a high intensity environment. Sessions are designed to improve players core technical and tactical skills. We want to provide our most ambitious, committed and highly motivated players the opportunity to take their game to the next level. We will prepare our players so that they meet, or exceed, the requirements and expectations of future CIS and NCAA Coaches.

 

WVFHC HP Program Highlights

Athletes will be physiologically tested as per the Woman's National Team and Video Analysis will be done for all athletes on their core technical skills. Players will be exposed to current international trends with our high level coaching team. Athletes will be able to learn from local "heroes" as we look to have current Canadian National Team Players guest coach throughout the program.

 

Strict Selection Criteria

Each age group will be limited to 18 players in each of our HP groups (U14/U16/U18). We are looking for players who have a sound technical base and are committed to continuous improvement and excellence.  Athletes are expected to attend one of the two tryout sessions (August 29 and/or September 4).

Wednesday Nights, 7:00-8:00pm  
Sept 9 - Nov 11th 
Rutledge Field

Wolves is a High Performance and Skills Development program to improve the quality of boys field hockey on the North Shore. We guarantee an excellent level of coaching by predominantly making use of National or ex-National players, as well as Provincial or National program coaches. Coaches provide a role model for athletes and the players are exposed to current International playing trends and styles.

The Wolves program plays a vital role in a player’s technical and tactical development. All training sessions are based on the Men's National Team core concepts and principals. These sessions will give players the skills and techniques to excel in Spring league, Men's league and FHBC Provincial programs, as well as an ideal opportunity to be identified into the Junior National program.

Wolves are looking to increase the number of competitive matches the boys play. Training sessions will have a greater focus on tactical and technical elements. Selected Wolves players will tour to the Cal Cup Tournament and also play games versus local and international teams.

Similar to last year, the Wolves Program and our Men's Division have formed a partnership to get more Wolves players playing in the Men's league. Players over the age of 14 are eligible to play Men's league. Wolves players will not be eligible to play in Men's league without attending at least 1 of the 2 Men's training sessions each week. The men train on Monday and Wednesday nights. If you participate in the Wolves Fall program and would like to play in Men's league, Men's division is offering Wolves players the discounted rate of $100 for the season. 

Registration for Men's league is to be done separately via the Men's Division registration page. In order to receive the discounted rate:
  • First register for the Fall Wolves Program (below)
