Youth Winter Indoor Packages

DID YOU KNOW that Calgary is hosting the Indoor Field Hockey PanAm Games this March 2024? 

…And that Indoor Field Hockey is considered a different sport from traditional outdoor field hockey with different sticks, balls and team sizes? Played on a hard surface with boards, it is excellent for developing quick reflexes and hand eye coordination and makes for a thrilling game!

      Stick Purchase


      Indoor sticks are thinner and lighter than outdoor sticks.  Be sure you purchase a stick that is appropriately sized for your child. A stick that is too large creates improper body positioning and makes it harder to learn and harder to break bad habits down the road. Generally, the stick should come to the athlete’s hip or just under the belly button.

      You can borrow a stick from FHA; email and bring a deposit cheque for $90 to your first practice. Write your cheque to Field Hockey Alberta and post date it for the last day of your session. 

      There are lots of online sites to purchase indoor sticks, including Field hockey Alberta Ramp registration. We also recommend the following local business to purchase indoor sticks:
