We have been following the Alberta relaunch strategy closely in hopes of having a modified spring season. Due to the provincial restrictions and timelines we unfortunately will be canceling the Calgary Junior Field Hockey, Cochrane Field Hockey, Chestermere Field Hockey, Red Deer Field Hockey and Airdrie Field Hockey seasons. We will also be cancelling all Community Funstix programs. We are disappointed to not have field hockey this spring but will continue to make the safety and well being of our members and their family our top priority.
We have been in contact with our merchant accounts and full refunds for all programs are scheduled to start May 16th, 2020. If it becomes safe to do so we would love to run summer camps, clinics and other programs. Please fill in our summer program survey to help us build our program: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P26JRDQ
While the restrictions continue please check out some of our new resources we are building on our website;
