Wolves is a High Performance and Skills Development program to improve the quality of boys field hockey on the North Shore. The Winter Wolves program is led by current Men's National Team coaches who provide a role model for athletes and ensure that players are exposed to current international playing trends and styles.

All training sessions are based on the Men's National Team core concepts and principles. 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.

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.
