News and Announcements
The rules of field hockey are constantly evolving and always being interpreted differently. The South Island Umpires Association is pleased to host the UMPIRE FORUM *in one week’s time.
WHEN: Monday, Sept. 16
WHERE: Upstairs, Pacific Institute for Sports Excellence (4371 Interurban Rd.)
TIME: 6:30-8:00 pm
WHO: All umpires, players or coaches (men and women)
WHAT: Led by Alison Sweeten and Gillian Horgan, this umpire forum is not only a rules and interpretations refresher for the league officials but also an opportunity for ALL players to come, ask questions, learn the rules and get up to speed on the latest.
It is highly recommended that every team tries to send 1-2 PLAYER representatives to aid in ensuring key messages are distributed across the players.
Note: A second umpire forum in Duncan is to be scheduled.
TeamPages is happy to announce that the first app was just approved and is now available for download.
You can get it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/teampages/id670 … or find it by searching “teampages” in the app store.
A few things to note:
There are still a couple bugs that we’ll be fixing before making a more formal announcement, specifically in replying to messages and viewing maps.
Please keep in mind that this is version 1.0 which means the app is still very much in its infancy. TeamPages is hoping to roll out a bunch of new features prior to the fall season and your feedback will go along way in shaping what we develop next for our mobile apps.
Sorry Android users, just for iPhone right now. The Android app is in the works and we’re hoping to have it ready to go for September.
Get your teams to download it and keep on track of their season schedules and use it to message each other!

VILFHA is pleased to announce the return of our pre-season tournament, the Bunyan!
After years of being absent from the VILFHA calendar, the Bunyan will return on Saturday, August 31st. The event will be 7-aside and recreational in nature and attitude!
The schedule for the event is attached. See you on the 31st!
- Parking note: due to ongoing construction UVic has closed Gabriola Road (running between McKinnon Gym and the pitch). Much of the area is fenced off but the pitch is accessible. Parking in the stadium lot maybe the least encumbered access to the pitch.
