FHBC are supporting Field Hockey Canada's The BIG PUSH. Due to recent drastic funding cuts FHC are inspired by the challenge to continue to pursue their goals. As our national athletes support the community, we encourage you to support Canada's National athletes through a charitable donation via CHIMP. Recently West Vancouver Field Hockey Club raised $2000 for the Rio 2016 campaign by hosting an event with some of Canada's top national athletes. To find out more about this event and the Big Push please visit FHC website!
