The Centre partner with likeminded organizations who are looking to make an impact in bringing the community together.
The Centre would not be a reality without the support of the City of Ottawa. The City is committed to providing spaces that serve everyone and have identified a piece of land that could become The Centre. The City have also committed to matching all donations from the community through the Major Capital Community Partnership program with a maximum value of City contribution of $1 million. With this cost sharing model we will be able to bring the Project to life in no time.
If you’ve heard of field hockey in Ottawa, you’ve heard of the Nighthawks. This field hockey power house is the driving force for The Centre. The Nighthawks grew from a local club to the largest junior club in Ontario in under 10 years.
The Nighthawks serve not only their members, but they also provide field hockey infrastructure and capacity for many other organizations. If you play high school field hockey in Ottawa you have met many Nighthawks as umpires, technical officials, and coaches!
The Nighthawks programs have been so successful that registration has been capped due to lack of facility capacity in the City. The Centre will provide the Nighthawks with the capacity to bring their programming to the next level.
Field Hockey Ontario (FHO) is field hockey’s Provincial Sport Organization (PSO). FHO and The Centre have agreed to work together to grow the sport of field hockey in the province and support our common goals.
