News and Announcements
After 4 seasons as the Vice President, Erica Kjekstad is stepping down from the board. Erica has been
with the VJFHA executive since 2011. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for hard work
and for dedicating countless hours on and off the field. Erica’s work on marketing and communications
has lifted our association to a new level.
After many years as the association’s Treasurer, Bill Moffat is stepping down from the board. We would
like to thank Bill for his many years of valuable advice and responsible financial book-keeping. Bill has
given many hours to our association and ensured that all legal and financial items are carefully
considered when conducting business.
Needless to say, there are two vacancies on the Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association (VJFHA) Board
of Directors for this upcoming season. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the field hockey
community. For parents, you will have a direct hand in shaping the association to benefit all children in
our sport. For younger adults, this is a great way to acquire some professional development in a
volunteer organization. Both Bill and Erica will be available for consultation as we get up to the new
volunteer up to speed. We look forward to having YOU on the board! Please contact Mark Baggott if you
would like to discuss these opportunities (e: email@example.com; m: 250.858.3895).

Good luck to the Victoria team playing in this weekend’s Club Championships at UVIC!
To accommodate the tournament, all regular programming will take place on Field 2A (the lower field). Kindies will play on Field 3.
Thanks for your flexibility, and be sure to cheer on Victoria when you walk past the water based turf!
Just a heads up before we head into this weekend’s programming: It is the grand opening of CARSA, that big, new building beside the fields
On Saturday and Sunday. the doors will open to EVERYONE for free. People can try the fitness weight center, field house and studio space at no cost from 9 am to 6 pm.
Please expect the Parking Lot (Lot 2 off Gabriola and Lot 7 across McKenzie) to be very busy that day, as well as the intersection at Gabriola Rd and McKenzie.
You may wish to, instead, park in the Centennial Stadium lot and walk to the field hockey pitch via the Continuing Studies building, or park for free in the new CARSA parkade, accessible off of McKenzie.
