Held over the May Long Weekend, the VIT has enjoyed over twenty years as one of the largest social field hockey tournaments on the West Coast. This year promises to be no different as we once again look forward to welcoming new and old friends alike.
2017 sees Burnaby Lake West Complex host as the main tournament venue; three artificial field turfs and a beer garden. There are five tournament divisions this year including once again a women’s masters division for the over 35’s.
Club Championships weekend. Age group and location to be determined.
The Annual BC/Victoria Masters Tournament is being held at the University of Victoria on July 8th-9th, 2017. This is a Masters event for women over 30 years old.

Field Hockey BC (FHBC) will host the first National Championship Festival involving both male and female divisions at Under 15, Under 18, and Under 23. The Championships will take place in the City of Surrey and utilize the first class water-based field hockey facilities at Tamanawis Park. Held over an eight day period (July 17-25, 2017), and involving the top athletes, coaches, and officials from across Canada, the Championships promise to be a true celebration and we encourage all fans to mark their calendars accordingly!
The move to host multiple National Championship events within the same calendar time frame and at at the same host venue, is part of the recent strategic commitment to Long-Term Field Hockey Development Competition Review. In this case, the focus is very much targeted at the performance stream for athletes, coaches, and officials; and it is hoped that this Festival Celebration will act as a catalyst for similar events at both the developmental and social level of our sport.
Watch this space for more information, including how you may be able to get involved with this major event. We look forward to welcoming the the rest of the Country to BC and the City of Surrey later this year!
