Try It Free Field Hockey events are an excellent opportunity for associations to showcase the sport in their community, provide cross-training support and encourage athletes to give field hockey a try. Our goal is to build strong partnerships with local leagues and clubs to help promote the second most played team sport in the world across our province. Through successful Try It Free events, we can certainly achieve this goal! Our hope at Field Hockey Alberta is to forge strong partnerships with our local associations that result in additional growth in the sport of field hockey as well as strong field hockey programs across our province.
