News and Announcements
Town Center fields remain closed and no league games are scheduled until further notice. Not sure how the make up game schedule will look at this point…it will be a hot mess for administrators and clubs to try and map out. Glad that is not my job!!!
Please also note that we are expecting a powerful snowstorm late afternoon/early evening Wednesday followed on Thursday by freezing rain. Roads could go from snowy, to icy to flooded quickly. Please stay safe and drive only if absolutely needed.
I will keep you posted,
As anticipated, all games are cancelled for this weekend. Practice is still up in the air for Monday and will depend on how much snow accumulates on Sunday. Currently the City of Coquitlam has closed the fields for the weekend. Stay tuned.
Enjoy your weekend off!
Hi Players and families,
There is a good possibility that we will get some snow tomorrow (Friday), and possibly on Saturday across the lower mainland. This DOES NOT automatically mean our game is cancelled. Some areas of the lower mainland are not impacted by snow as we are in this area, and with some rain also expected, any snow may not stick.
Please check the VWFHA website for game cancelation notices between 8-11am. Any notification will be posted and I will communicate cancelations via this site and perhaps text. I will be checking the site regularly between these hours also. Game is considered ON unless you hear from me. I will be driving Heidi and will have room for 1 more. If you need a ride, please text me at 604-619-6465.
So far, Jennifer, Jestene, Ash, Cait, and Chloe not available. Please let my know ASAP if you are not available.
Please see the UPDATED Power game schedule below. It is a DOUBLE HEADER this weekend due to the make up game from before Christmas Break. I will need to know your availability by Wednesday evening for both games so that I have enough time to borrow players if available. Please let me know by text/email if you are not available for one, or either of the games.
SATURDAY 28-Jan Tam 1 (New) 12:00noon Hurricane Sharks Eagles Power
SUNDAY 29-Jan Livingstone 8:30 am Lomas 3 Eagles Power (Make Up Game)
Sat 04-Feb Crofton House High School, Dunbar, Vancouver 2:30pm Hawks 6 Eagles Power
I know that it was tougher for everyone playing with some unfamiliar faces this past weekend, but overall the team did well….we have some work to do still, but I can see you all building in skill and game awareness.
Points to focus on this weekend.
*players need to be more effective at hitting with purpose and power, especially under pressure…or sweep hitting with power. We are trying to outlet the ball to the sides channels as quickly as possible to make use of those attacking lanes where we can advance quickly. Mids on the side need to be ready to move in, or back out to the line to receive.
*Use the Pass back and switch the chanel/sides quickly.
***Take turnover free hits quickly and offset the opposition.
See on Saturday.
Our first game of the season is scheduled for this SATURDAY JAN 21 @2:30pm, MOBILIO FIELD. Please text or email me tonight/tomorrow to confirm that you can make it. I have no idea how many of you are available with such short notice, but hopefully we have enough for a few subs. It will feel a little bumpy first game back, so lets have a good warm up to shake off the rust.
I will be at the bleachers around 1:30pm-1:45pm. If the practice area at the back of the fields is open (north end, by entrance road to parking lot at Mobilio), I will wait there for everyone.
Chilli girls… the roads are pretty clear out this way.
See you this Saturday.
