2018 UNDER 15/U18 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP INFORMATION

Each year, all Field Hockey clubs in BC are invited to attend Field Hockey BC’s (FHBC) Club Festivals and Championships. These are hosted in different locations and offer an excellent opportunity for participants to travel with a team and play against other clubs from around the province. FHBC organizes a Club Championship for the U15 age-group.
Club Festival Format:

At this level, the event is a championship format (round robin, playoffs, medals) playing 11 a-side on a full field. The U15 age group (birth yr. 2004, 2003) format aligns with the stage of learning as outlined in Field Hockey Canada’s Long Term Hockey Development Program.

• Team Size – 15 players
• The schedule and number of games at the Festival has yet to be finalize
• Travel day may be moved to Friday due to tournament schedule

Regions across the province will be sending teams to participate in the Championship, offering an additional opportunity to their Spring League experience with several games over a two-day period. It is a highlight for the athletes, offering excellent competition, lots of fun, and team bonding.

Player Eligibility and Assessment Process:

All participants are required to participate in at least one of the assessments to be considered for selection to a team. To ensure fairness, VJFHA will assign one or more assessors to set up and conduct the assessments to ensure all participants are evaluated objectively. Every effort will be made to ensure that the assessors are not family members of any participants at the trials.

Assessment Dates:

Sunday April 22: 4:30pm – 5:30pm Tuesday April 24: 7:30pm – 8:30pm

Depending on the number of athletes, consideration will be given to enter a second team, based on available coaches, number of players and available team entry spots at the Championship Tournament.

Preference may be given to VJFHA participants; if a player who is not a VJFHA participant, is selected to a club championship team , they will be required to pay a $30 fee in addition to the player fee to cover extra costs covered by the association – tournament registration and assessment turf costs.

Player Cost and Responsibilities:

Although this tournament is an additional opportunity outside the regular league season the Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association is committed to supporting the teams by covering: turf costs for assessments, Club Festival team entry fee and individual team shirts.

All participants selected to a team will be responsible for their own transportation (vehicle/ferry), accommodation and meal costs. In addition, each participant will be required to pay a Club Festival player fee of $75-$100 to cover additional team costs, including but not limited to:

o Practice turf fee (three 1-hour sessions)
o Travelling umpire and non-parent coach travel subsidies o Team socks (if applicable)
o Team snacks and incidentals

These fees are due in full at the first Club Festival training session, payable by cheque to “Victoria Junior Field Hockey Association”.

Practice Schedule:

To ensure fairness, the number of practice sessions will be equal. The Association is committed to support three 1-hour practice times for each club festival/championship team. To minimize additional costs it is expected that teams share turf time. In some cases, it will be expected that practice times are shared. U15 practices will begin the week of May 7, 2018 and are on Saturday’s from 4:15 – 5:15pm on the UVic water based turf.
