Field Hockey Canada is excited to introduce Kevin Underhill as the organization’s new Communications Manager. A rookie to field hockey but a veteran in the Canadian sports environment, Underhill is excited to join to the Field Hockey Canada team.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the staff at Field Hockey Canada,” he said. “I am a huge fan of Canadian sports and I love working with dedicated athletes, coaches and support staff.”
Underhill is a University of Victoria graduate where he studied journalism and communications. He then went on to complete the post-grad journalism certificate program at Langara College in Vancouver. Underhill comes to Field Hockey Canada with five years of experience as the Communications Manager for Ultimate Canada.
Underhill has a multisport background competing both recreationally and competitively in ice hockey, soccer, baseball and golf. He also has international competition experience playing for Canada’s National Ultimate team. His knowledge of the amateur sports world and his technical background make him a natural fit for the role.
Field Hockey Canada CEO, Jeff Sauvé, said he thinks Underhill will slot seamlessly in with the team at Field Hockey Canada.
“Kevin has already shown that he is eager to learn the ins and outs of the sport. We are excited to bring aboard a professional with such a diverse sporting background.” Sauvé said. “I have no doubt he will continue the momentum created in storytelling, while enhancing our community engagement strategy.”
Underhill values the community sport feeling at Field Hockey Canada and is eager to dive headfirst into the role.
“The field hockey community has been extremely welcoming to me so far. I think it’s a testament to the amazing people working hard to promote an amazing sport within Canada and globally,” Underhill said.
