Indoor Field Hockey Sessions offered by the Comox Valley FHA

The Comox Valley Field Hockey Association is inviting players to join their indoor field hockey sessions starting this week, on Tuesday, at Lewis Centre (489 Old Island Hwy, Courtenay, BC V9N 3P5) from 8:00 to 9:00pm. All sessions will take place on Tuesdays on the following dates: Oct 18th, Oct 25th, Nov 1st ,  Nov 15th , Nov 22nd, Nov 29th.

You can access the registration form and waiver here.

Read the invitation communique from the Comox Valley Field Hockey Association below:


Last year we had a great turnout for indoor and it was a lot of fun. I hope to have 8 – 10 players each session for good play action with 4 -5 per side. To accomplish this, I will send those that contact me regarding their interest, a text early the night before (Monday) requesting whether they will be attending the session Tuesday Night. If fewer than 8 respond, we will consider cancelling, although we have played indoor with 6 – 7 players in the past. Last year, we did not have to cancel one session and had at least 8 player show up each session.  

The cost for indoor sessions will be $5 drop in or $20 for all 6 sessions paid in advance. Our club does have indoor sticks that players can borrow so all you need to bring is a mouth guard and shin pads to play, and preferably white bottomed running shoes that won’t mark gym floors. 

Please email or text me personally, Julie Micksch at or text at 250-792-0297 if you are interested in coming out for all or any of our indoor sessions so that I can create a more personal email and text contact list. And please feel free to email or text me directly if you have any further questions regarding indoor field hockey starting next Tuesday, October 18th. I’ve added some additional info below regarding session fee payment, field hockey insurance, waivers and registration. 

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you in the gym for some awesome exercise and fun.


A change has been made with regards to e-transfer payment for the Club.  In order to pay for sessions, you can e-transfer your fee to the Club email address now and the e-transfer is auto-deposited so no need for a security question and answer.  Please do not use the previous phone number provided as this will not work any longer.

Here is the email address you need to use to e-transfer your payment to the Comox Valley Field Hockey Club: Attached is the NEW Waiver Form with this email so please download and fill out and bring to the next session so that we can update our records. Also, just a reminder, all members must have a mouth guard and shin guards if you wish to play during each session.  Safety first!
