This week the University of Victoria rolled out a new process to deal with field closures and weather cancellations. They will be updating a page on their website for everyone to see. This eliminates the mass amount of communication for third-party groups and everyone can check the field status from home on their own similar to how the soccer groups do it.
The link is: http://vikesrec.ca/fields
Note: When the fields are closed by the University this is not up for discussion or debate.
It is time to pass on your valuable time and experience to the next generation!

Canada Masters Hockey is a new national initiative for hockey players over the age of thirty-five. The program, which was launched in May 2015, will see National Masters teams competing in major International events as early as the Fall of 2015.
The Canada Masters Hockey initiative supports Field Hockey Canada’s strategic objective of developing and strengthening field hockey across the country and fostering a robust Canadian hockey family.
Engaging Master level athletes, the Canada Masters Hockey program will provide field hockey players of all ages the opportunity to continue participation in the sport at an international level.
