“After a great skills clinic with Canadian national player Ali Lee, the girls are anxious to try out some new skills,” a CVFHL spokesperson said.

The ladies team is looking for more players and their practices are held every Tuesday at Queneesh from 7 to 8 p.m. “Continue with your high school passion for field hockey and come out and join the team,” the spokesperson said.
