I hope this message finds you all well and staying at home.
The Covid-19 pandemic continues to wreck havoc on all aspects of our lives and unfortunately, our children’s field hockey too. As a result, UVIC has made the appropriate decision to keep everyone safe and healthy through continued social distancing by extending the closure of its athletic facilities to June 30th. Sadly, this closure means our upcoming spring league season is cancelled. Our junior league board is currently looking into the most efficient option to refund all registration payments made and we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
For those that are interested and eligible, there are some free educational opportunities available:
For those who completed the Fundamentals Coach Course in March 2020, you will be receiving information on two additional coaching modules that will complement your recent course work.
Community Umpiring Course
Available through the Field Hockey BC website: https://www.fieldhockeybc.ca/fhbc/courses.php/
Note: This course is recommended for those 13 years of age or older.
We wish continued safety and health to our field hockey community of players, families and volunteers. I hope you all are enjoying ‘at home’ time and creating some memorable experiences. Thank you for all your support and we together will get through this difficult time. Hope to see you on the pitch again when it is safe!
