Coach Needed at Oak Bay High School!

Posted by Ali Baggott at Aug 21, 2011 5:43PM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Volunteer Coaching Position (September – early November, 2011)

The Oak Bay High School Field Hockey team is in desperate need of a coach (or two coaches working together) for their upcoming season. Practice times / days are up to the coach’s discretion. However, the team has historically practised from 7:00-8:00 a.m. Tuesday mornings at the Oak Bay Rec Centre indoor turf and after school on Thursdays at UVic. Game days are Mondays and Wednesdays, either from 3:30-4:30 or 4:30-5:30. The team is scheduled to play in tournaments as follows:

a) Friendship Cup (September 16th/17th)
b) Bridgman Tournament (Thanksgiving weekend)
c) Island Championships (end of October)
d) B.C. Championships (if qualify from Island zone – first weekend in November)

There is a very strong parental support network. No managerial duties are required. (Several of the parents also have coaching experience and could possibly fill in on the odd occasion.)
There is a range of abilities on the team, from beginners all the way to junior national team players. Last year the team won Islands and placed fourth at provincials. Due to the graduation of several key players, the depth of the team may not be quite the same this year. However, they are a keen, supportive, fun bunch of girls and they would be a fantastic group to coach!

For further information, please contact Deb Secco at or 250-595-1403.


For the second year in a row, University of Victoria Vikes’ Field Hockey pitch will play home to the largest domestic tournament of the year. Not only will the tournament showcase the best of Canada’s men’s and women’s field hockey players but it will also be a great stepping ground for Canada’s Junior national team athletes.

The tournament is scheduled for June 29th to July 3rd, 2011 and is anticipating 8 women’s and 5 men’s teams from across the country. With the majority of the Senior national team squads being made up of British Columbians, there will be both a British Columbia “A” team and Junior National team in both the men’s and women’s divisions that will both be anticipated to reach the medal rounds.
