The Comox Valley Field Hockey League had a fantastic turnout for their first Spring League practice on April 8. The enthusiast group enjoyed a fun and well coached practice. The great news is, the league still has room for more players.

The league is extending its registration deadline to April 30. If you’d like to try the sport before joining the league, the team is now offering new players their first time out for free. New players will then be allowed to drop in twice after that for a fee of $5.

"We hope that after three practices you’ll be as hooked on the sport as our members are and join the league," a spokesperson said. "The Spring League fees cover the cost of coached practices on Tuesdays, scrimmages on Thursdays and field hockey sports insurance which is important coverage for any athlete. It’s a great deal."
