HistoryEdit

Hockey arrived in Chile in the middle of the 20th century. Chile's national team have had success at a continental level, but has never stemmed this worldwide. The team has never qualified for a World Cup or an Olympic Games.

The Chilean women's most successful year came in 2017, with their silver medal performance at the 2017 Pan American Cup. The team made history by recording their first ever win over the United States in official competition, and progressing to the final for the first time.[3]

Chile has medalled at one Pan American Games, in Guadalajara 2011. At the tournament, the team won a bronze medal after defeating Canada. Chile have narrowly missed medals at the event on three other occasions, finishing in fourth place.

Chile has also seen great success in its junior national team. The junior team has qualified for and competed in three Junior World Cups, and has medalled at four Pan American Junior Championships.
