Tsawwassen’s Short and McManus are taking Canada to Chile next week

The women’s team has confirmed their chances of winning the World Cups in Spain and the Netherlands this summer.

With Tsawwassen’s unique taste, the women’s national field hockey team is set to release the 2022 International Calendar, preparing to qualify for the World Cup in Europe this summer.

Canada travel to Chile next week for the Pan American Cup, aiming to earn one of three World Cup points.

Canada plays Mexico (January 19), USA (January 21) and Peru (January 23) in a free tournament for everyone from Group “B”. The first place will give them a chance to advance directly to the semi-finals scheduled for January 27, which means they will win by traveling to Spain and the Netherlands this July.

Former men’s national team champion and Swazan’s own player Rob Short took over as head coach last fall. One of the players leaning on him is defender Sarah McManus.

With 187 hats, he is one of the most experienced and decorated athletes in Canada.

The 28-year-old Southern Delta runner-up was always close to winning his first trip to the Summer Olympics when Canada beat Ireland in a heart-breaking shootout in the wild card qualifying round.

However, the robust schedule reflected significant recent developments and led to a decade-high ranking in the world 13th with a short cycle to the 2024 Olympics in Paris. The setting for the Bon Am Cup in San Diego in November was a five-game sweep of the United States, with the Canadians beating their hosts 9-2 in the series.

The trip to Chile and the potential for it to emerge in Europe this summer led to an extensive fundraising campaign.

The total cost of competing in Santiago is approximately $ 75,000, the cost of group travel is $ 40,000, and the cost of food and lodging is another $ 35,000. See the Team Donations page Here.
