Come watch elite level field hockey!
VICTORIA – The island has produced a number of national team and elite level field hockey players. That all starts right here, in Victoria, with several of those teams competing at home on a regular basis. For boys, girls, men, women – the action is at the University of Victoria field hockey pitch! For the women, the UVic Vikes women compete in the Canada West conference of the Canadian Interuniversity Sport and host both UBC and Calgary this year. The Vikes women along with the newly formed Kirby’s Island Wildcats will also play host to top competition from the Vancouver women’s premier league. Teams will travel from the mainland to compete against the Vikes and Wildcats, two new members to the premier division. For the men, the Victoria Selects and UVic Vikes are two long-time members of the men’s vancouver premier league who compete regularly both in Vancouver and Victoria!
