Objectives

The objectives of Elite Field Hockey Club are:

Youth Involvement

The vital role young people played in organizing and participating in the club activities is complemented by the young student coaches and referees who are involved in guiding the mini teams U-6/8 kids with their games.

All these roles provided a wealth of new experiences for the young people involved. This has raised the status of those involved and increased their confidence for the future.

The major benefit arising from all this is the “feel-good factor” for so many people who were involved in youth activities. Their efforts contribute greatly and are publicly acknowledged. Our community is better off because of this.

The concept of voluntary service has been extended to our youth. Already a number are becoming involved in other community activities. By identifying their talents and their willingness they have many new avenues and opportunities to participate.

A perfect foundation has been laid for continuing youth and sporting initiatives among the lower mainland.

Community Participation

People who gave their time freely are our most valuable resource. Many families volunteer time and effort to get us success in every aspect.

A local food bank food drive is also held at our annual festival to help the local community; this promotes a culture of giving and sharing amongst the youth.

A donation drive to collect non-perishable food items and other general supplies for Red Cross Fort McMurray Relief Fund was held at Tamanawis Field Hockey Grounds at our second annual Festival in May 2016 to promote a culture of social work in our youth.
