Our spring hockey program is scheduled to begin on March 19! There will be two sessions of 5 weeks each. Each age group will get one game per weekend. The schedule is for Session 1 is posted on the website.
Please note that the first session for U11 is already full, but there is room in U13 and U15/U18. The U15 and U18 age categories have been combined for the first session due to lower numbers. If VMHA does not have sufficient registration at any given age group, we will communicate directly with families who have registered at the end of next weekend. Registration is on the website here, https://www.victoriaminorhockey.ca/spring-hockey-2022/
Are you a U11 or U13 player interested in trying out goal (during spring or regular season)? Or an existing goalie in need of a different size of pads to defer buying new ones? VMHA has sets of almost new Vaughn goalie pads and gear (pads, blockers, catchers, sticks, etc.) for U11 and U13 (in addition to sets for our younger U7 and U9 age groups). If you are interested in borrowing some of the VMHA goalie gear let our equipment manager know at email@example.com.
