Club Championship Interest
Announcing an exciting opportunity for our U12 to U18 Girls participants – travelling to play in a tournament!
Each year, all field hockey clubs in BC are invited to attend Field Hockey BC’s (FHBC) Club Festivals and Championships. These are hosted in different locations each year and offer an excellent opportunity for participants to travel with a team and play against other clubs from around the province.
Priority for selection will be given to those players who are current VJFHA members but if the teams are short, we will solicit for non-VJFHA members but they still need to fill out the below form.

More details below:
Clubs across the province will be sending teams to participate in these events, offering VJFHA players an additional opportunity to their Spring League experience with several games over a two or three-day period. It is a highlight for the players, offering new competition, travel, team jerseys, lots of fun, and team bonding.
Player Cost and Responsibilities:
Although these tournaments are an additional opportunity outside the regular league sea-son, the VJFHA is committed to supporting the teams by committing funds to help cover turf costs for assessments, Club Championship team entry fee, and support for coach/umpire travel subsidies.
All participants selected to a team will be responsible for their own transportation (vehicle/ferry), accommodation and meal costs. In addition, each participant will be required to pay a Club Championship player fee of approximately $60.00 to cover additional team costs, including but not limited to:
• Practice turf fee (two to three 1-hour sessions)
• Personalized jersey and socks (to keep)
• Team snacks and incidentals
These fees will be due by the first team practice.
