The Comox Valley Field Hockey League (CVFHL) is excited to announce the start of spring registration for the 2015 season (April 16 to June 18). It is open to all ages eight years and up, male and female.

Last year 26 people registered, allowing for fun games to be played during practices. To register for the 2015 spring league contact the Lewis Centre at 489 Old Island Highway, Courtenay or stop by during one of our indoor field hockey practices on Monday nights between March 16-30, 7-8 p,m. at Ecole Au-cœur-de-l’île 566 Linshart Road, Comox.

Registration costs: adults $50, juniors (born 1997-2002) $40, youths (born 2003-2007) $30. Field hockey sticks will be signed out on the first day of practice with a $50 deposit. Mouth guard and shin pads are required.

The CVFHL notes field hockey is an exciting sport that is played internationally by both men and women in over 112 countries. Outdoor field hockey is an Olympic sport with many opportunities for men and women to play on local, university, provincial, national and master level teams.

The CVFHL is a social league that welcomes individuals and families to join and participate in an exciting sport that will increase fitness and coordination, and develop hockey and team building skills through coaching and mentorship from the league’s more advanced players. It is the perfect opportunity for families to spend time participating in a sport together.

This is a great year to join the league with the new synthetic turf field near Vanier high school available for all scheduled practices. No lumpy, bumpy grass fields for this league. Just smooth, synthetic grass for improved passing and ball handling – and no unexpected craters and doggy-do.

As well, there are several exciting activities scheduled for the spring and fall, with the most anticipated being the Westerly Field Hockey Tournament during the City of Courtenay’s 100th year anniversary. The CVFHL will be hosting the event and invitations will be sent  to Vancouver Island and Seattle teams. We hope to bring the Westerly Tournament Cup back to the Comox Valley during the city’s centennial.

Whether you’re a field hockey player or not, please feel free to watch us play on Mondays from 5:30-7 p.m. and Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. The CVFHL appreciates all your energy and support.

CVFHL practices will be held Mondays and Thursdays, April 13 to June 18 at the turf field. Tuesday (5:30-7 p.m.) is Family Day to build skills and learn to play, for ages eight and up. Thursday (7-8:30 p.m.) is Scrimmage Day for players ages 13 and above.
