When do the programs / sessions run?
Summer Competitive Regional Teams: April-July
What is the cost of each program / session?
Programs vary in cost, due to the length of the season. You will find our costs to be very low compared to other sports. We are a completely non-profit and volunteer based club. The registration page has exact costs.
What is FHO and why do we pay this fee?
FHO stands for Field Hockey Ontario. It is the governing body for the sport of field hockey in the province of Ontario.
An annual membership fee of $30 is paid to FHO for player insurance purposes. This fee is over and above club registration fees.
How do I register?
Registration is done online through the Field Hockey Ontario membership portal. The portal allows you to manage your profile, pay your FHO Fees as well as your Nighthawk Club Fees for each program.
Where/When are the practices?
Spring / Summer: Oz Dome, Stittsville / Minto Field @ Nepean Sportsplex
Winter: Norm Fenn Gymnasium, Carleton University
The schedule varies for each age group and is updated regularly.
1.5 – 2 hours per practice, 1-2 nights per week (depending on field availability).
What equipment is required?
Stick, shin guards, running shoes, water bottle, and mouth guard (mandatory). We do offer loaner sticks at no cost, however we really encourage players to buy their own sticks.
Where can I buy equipment?
Revamp Sports is our official sponsor and supplier. You can purchase equipment online through Revamp Sports.
We also have an equipment sale early in the Spring hosted by Revamp Sports.

What are the age groups?
|Age Groups (2018 season)||Birth Year|
|U10||2008 younger (co-ed)|
|U12||2006 - 2007 (co-ed)|
|18+ Women||1999 and older|
How do you organize your age groups / teams?
We do not have club sort outs or tryouts. Everyone is welcome regardless of experience levels. Our philosophy is to make sure that every player has a place to play and practice. We always strive to keep players within their age groups. From time to time we may shift some players based on numbers and experience levels.
Also note that our Age Groups do not always line up exactly with out of town tournaments. We will enter tournaments based on what we believe to be in the best interest of all of our Club Members (again we always attempt to find a place for all of our members to play).
What is JWPL?
JWPL stands for Junior Women’s Provincial League.
This Under 18 Girls league has clubs participating from all across Ontario. It is organized by Field Hockey Ontario and is the most competitive league in the province.
Players that are interested in playing at a high competitive level are encouraged to play for the Nepean Nighthawks JWPL team.
