Entry and Registration

The Team Registration process will form TWO PARTS as it has done historically.

The PART ONE window of the Team Registration process will open on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022. 

Each single club administrator or club contact will have the opportunity to nominate one (1) team per club, per club championship event for early registration. This early registration window will close on Wednesday April 27th, 2022. Please, coordinate within your club to ensure that only one early submission is being made per club, per championship event.

PART ONE consists of a team declaration window that enables club administrators to declare in advance the intent of entering a single team per club championship or festival event. The intent of this early ‘team declaration’ is to provide the opportunity for all clubs to enter at least one team into the Championship program. In the past some clubs have not been able to get a single team into an event due to the registration process only having a first-come-first-serve team registration window.

To return an early ‘team declaration’, please have a club designate reach out to request the registration form via info@fieldhockeybc.com or via phone at 604-737-3146.

The PART TWO window will be a ‘first-come-first-serve’ ONLINE team registration window which will open at NOON on Monday May 2nd, 2022, and will close on Thursday May 5th, at NOON.

Note that spots are limited!

If the event you wish to apply for is “sold out”, and you would like to be put on the “Team Waiting List”, please send an email titled “Club Championships Waiting List” to info@fieldhockeybc.com and include your team and club name, division, gender and tier.

———-

Please note that, by May 5th, ALL teams need to submit player rosters, as well as named umpires and technical official volunteers who can be scheduled for the event the team is entering. Travelling teams (those teams travelling outside of their region – Island teams travelling to the Mainland/Travelling Interior Teams/and Mainland Teams travelling to the Island), will be given an exemption from the naming of umpires.

More information regarding the role of the Technical Official Volunteer will be disseminated prior to the online team registration.

More information regarding event technical meetings for participating Team Managers will be disseminated following the online team registration deadline. 

In summary and dates for the diary:  

  • April 20-27: an early registration window for clubs to manually nominate one team per event
  • May 2-5: online ‘first-come-first-serve’ team registration

Registration fees per team for each of the Club Championship Events are as follows:

U18 Boys $475
U16 Boys $425
U14 Boys $425
U12 Boys $150

U18 Girls $475
