For the second year in a row, University of Victoria Vikes’ Field Hockey pitch will play home to the largest domestic tournament of the year. Not only will the tournament showcase the best of Canada’s men’s and women’s field hockey players but it will also be a great stepping ground for Canada’s Junior national team athletes.

The tournament is scheduled for June 29th to July 3rd, 2011 and is anticipating 8 women’s and 5 men’s teams from across the country. With the majority of the Senior national team squads being made up of British Columbians, there will be both a British Columbia “A” team and Junior National team in both the men’s and women’s divisions that will both be anticipated to reach the medal rounds.

Set the dates in your calendar to come and watch!

Sunday April 17 Turf Changes

Posted by Milena Gaiga at Apr 15, 2011 12:48PM PDT

Attention U8 girls and boys, U10 girls , U12 girls and U14 girls divisions. There is a tournament being hosted on the water based turf which we usually have our sessions on Sundays. As a result we will be moved to Turf Field #3.

Turf Field #3 is located at the end of the water based turf and can be accessed off Turf Field 2A which is next to the water based turf. You will need to walk to the end of Turf 2A to get access to Turf Field #3.
