Field Hockey Association of Calgary fonds
1.3 m of textual records
Field hockey is a stick-and-ball goal game of 11 players per team. It is a non-contact game with a distinctive stick. The game was popular in England by the late 19th century, and in Canada it was originally restricted to the west coast. The immigration of players from all parts of the Commonwealth after the Second World War influenced the establishment of field hockey across the country. The game became popular in Calgary, Alberta in the 1950s but the Field Hockey Association of Calgary was not incorporated until 1971. The association regulates men's, boys' and mixed field hockey in the Calgary area, as well as the indoor game. The association concentrates on grassroots development but has also hosted National Championships in 1971, 1975, 1980, 1984 and 1988. It is affiliated with the provincial and Canadian associations.
