Our Project

We are building the future home of field hockey in Ottawa. We know the power of team sport for uniting people across all walks of life, keeping them active and healthy both physically and mentally. We will build a Centre that reflects those values. 

With the approval of our Major Capital Funding Application by City Council we are now moving into the fundraising phase of the Project. 

Project Status

The Centre will serve the community and include:

  • - Connection to a new cohort of youth and adults engaged in the field hockey community
