Spring League Updates

WVFHC DELAYING THE START OF SPRING LEAGUE

Today all the executive board members from the Greater Vancouver Junior Field Hockey League agreed that the league will be pushing back the start date of spring league. The tentative start date for the league is now going to be April 18/19. We will continue monitoring what is happening with the coronavirus disease and make a judgement call as we get closer to April 18.

We are constantly monitoring the rapidly developing situation regarding the global COVID-19 pandemic and are taking guidance from local and provincial health authorities. If anything changes we will notify players, coaches and parents immediately. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Our Philosophy

Our primary focus is creating a fun environment where playing with friends can be enjoyed year after year. To that end we create teams in a non-tryout, non-evaluation program. Players can remain with the same team from U6 to U18, strengthening their sense of belonging and teamwork every year.
