News and Announcements
Congratulations to all players on a great season and to our winning teams. Saturday was an exciting day of hockey with the Stellers beating Lynx 3 5-1 to take the Div 3 top spot. The Div 2 final match up was a tight game with Sailors and Lynx 2 going into a shootout. The final score was 4-3 for the Sailors. The Mariners and Patriots battled for Div 1 first place with the Mariners taking the Patriots 2-1.
Special thanks to all those who worked the technical table, in particular Brenda Rushton for organizing and Pat Hall for her long shifts at the table. Another big thanks to everyone who donated to the fundraiser we did for the Canadian Women’s National Team. Together the league raised over $2,500!
Also, a reminder, the VILFHA AGM and Awards Night is in 329A at PISE at 7pm, on Tuesday, April 9.

The league is in communication with Field Hockey BC and Field Hockey Canada, who are meeting late January to discuss the proposed changes. VILFHA will not be making any decisions on implementation until hearing the recommendations that come from that meeting. See the announcement from FIH here:
