Boys Wolves

Wolves is a skills development program to improve the quality of boys field hockey on the North Shore. The Wolves program is overseen 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.

Fall Wolves

Fall Wolves is designed for boys grade 6-12 who would like to focus on skills development and technical and tactical development. 

Program features include:

  • 12 week program of 90 minutes practice
  • Great coaching from current and ex-Men's National Team players and supported by professional club coaches
  • Latest techniques and skills that are used at an international level

NEW this season we are also offering boys in grades 6-8 the option to combine Wolves skills with Hockey 5 games.  Players will develop and hone their skills in the Wolves training sessions and then apply what they have learned in a games scenario.
