A new Executive Director for Hockey Nova Scotia.

Mike Field is a former member of the Acadia Axemen and graduated from Acadia University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Kinesiology.

The Truro native went on to garner more than two decades of experience in hockey governance in the province.

“Mike Field is an experienced hockey leader who has gained the trust and confidence of not only the board of directors, but of our membership at every level across the province,” said Arnie Farrell, president of Hockey Nova Scotia. “Mike has a tremendous work ethic and a values-based approach to leadership. He always strives to ensure that the best interests of our players are put first. We could not be more pleased to have him leading the way at Hockey Nova Scotia.”

Field was Member Services Coordinator in January 2002 and was Member Services Manager in 2008. He was even Executive Director on an interim basis in 2004 and 2018.

“This is a very exciting day and I am thrilled to take on this new challenge,” Field said. “I look forward to working with the board of directors, the Hockey Nova Scotia office staff and our members to find new way to make hockey more accessible, safe and fun for all participants to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to experience the sport I love.”

For more than two decades, Field has brought stability and leadership to the branch office. A respected voice in the province’s hockey community, Field has gained a reputation for his professionalism and dependability with league administrators, association executives, coaches, officials, and players alike. Over the years, he has built strong and lasting relationships with our vast network of hockey associations and volunteers. His commitment to leading, developing, and promoting positive hockey experiences for all players is evident to anyone who works with him.

Field will be taking over the position from Amy Walsh who joined the Future of Hockey Lab on a full-time basis.
