News and Announcements
A few updates.
- Unfortunately practice is cancelled for tomorrow, JAN 16th as Town Centre is still closed.
- We can expect Round Two games for us to start this weekend (Jan 21st) with any luck…weather is supposed to warm up but be super wet this week, so we may see some of the snow and ice finally melt. Please check the VWFHA website at least 2-3 hours prior to games to ensure that games are not cancelled. Any cancelations are usually posted on the main landing page of the website.
NOTE…We have a double header/make up game weekend on 28th and 29th. Please plan your schedule in advance… we have no opportunity to reschedule so if we only have 8, this is what we play with.
Sat 21-Jan Coquitlam (Town Centre) 2:30pm Four Eagles Power Elite Select
Sat 28-Jan Tam 1, (New Field, Surrey) 12:00noon Four Hurricane Sharks Eagles Power
Sun 29-Jan Rutledge , West Vancouver 3:30pm Four Lomas 3 Eagles Power (Make up game added from W14)
Sat 04-Feb Crofton, Vancouver 2:30 pm Four Hawks 6 Eagles Power
LEAGUE UPDATES-From Jenning and the VWFHA
- The result at the end of the 2 rounds will determine team movement up and relegation down, and we did not want to have to base it on only one round. The Quarterfinals have been removed from our original schedule and, all things going well, we will move right into Semis and Finals with the Top 4 teams, as in previous seasons. Please find attached the REVISED Calendar of Games which outlines how the remainder of our season will look.
The schedule for the weekend of Feb 4/5 is also attached. Note – there will be NO EXHIBITION GAMES the BC Family Day long weekend (Feb 11/12) as there wasn’t enough interest. Our main goal is to get as many games played as soon as possible (even if it’s just 1!), so we will not cancel any games prematurely. Please have players continue to monitor the web site for field updates. VWFHA
Take care everyone, and see you hopefully on SATURDAY.
NO PRACTICE tomorrow, January 9th. Fields are still closed.
Our TC Club has been speaking with both the League and the City of Coquitlam about possible start up dates and the likelihood of a condensed game schedule… nothing is confirmed on that yet…more to come as it all develops. Hopefully the rain tonight will bring some accelerated melting on the fields and games can get back to the normal schedule.
Take care everyone. I will keep you posted!
Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all had fabulous celebrations with your family and friends. I was laid out with the flu over the holidays…not my favorite way to spend my rare days off, but I’m thankfully on the mend.
Practice is cancelled for tomorrow, Jan 2nd, as the fields are still frozen and covered in snow. I will let you know when we are able to get back onto the fields…stay tuned!
Have fun in the snow, and drive safely.
- Last game of 2016 is this Saturday, November 26th at 4pm. Please meet me at the Mobilio bleachers at 3:15pm
- Practices also conclude for 2016 as of this weekend. Practices and games will resume January 2017.
Attached is the preliminary schedule that sent out at the beginning of the season, although the make up games have been bumped back because of the field flooding a few weeks back. If there are adjustments to this schedule over the coming weeks, I will email out or post on this site.

Although this one is in French, the concepts of todays practice of 3D and Arial skills above ground apply. I only hope that club will let me buy all of this amazing equipment! Remember that using this skills is always about creating advantage, and not danger.
