The Comox Valley Field Hockey League (CVFHL) is excited to announce the start of spring registration for the 2014 season, April 8 to June 26, open to all ages 8 years and up, male and female.
This year the focus of the CVFHL will be on encouraging families to participate in this exciting sport that can provide those involved with many associated benefits including fitness, team building skills and community interaction. In addition, opportunities do exist for youngsters, who excel in the sport, to receive academic scholarships to play for university teams in both Canada and the USA.
The CVFHL is looking to expand and strengthen the league in anticipation of the new artificial turf that will be built and completed in Comox Valley by the fall of 2014. Having this turf in the Comox Valley will continue to enhance and solidify the league’s current success in the sport against other well-established teams on Vancouver Island and the Mainland.
Last year, the Comox Valley ladies team won the Masters Tournament in Victoria and the Westerly Tournament in Nanaimo. The junior ladies team had a very successful year as well.
