Female competitive hockey gets … more competitive

Female hockey teams registered with the Vancouver Island Hockey Assocation are growing in number.

Due to the increased number of female hockey players in recent years, Vancouver Island Hockey Association has put together some regional A teams to represent the island at the BC provincials and to compete at a higher level.

This season the Island will have five competitive female hockey teams who will mostly play against boys’ teams here on the island and will compete against each other for a spot at the BC provincials.

The South Island Peewee A is the team representing the girls from Oak Bay to Mill Bay and the skills level on this team is exceptional. On Saturday they showed their stick handling skills and speed by easily winning 8-2 against Kerry Park’s C1 Peewee Team. The girls will be travelling to Richmond for a tournament in November and will be playing against the best female teams from Western Canada.

They will be having a bottle-drive from 12-3 p.m., Saturday October 5 at Belmont school to fund raise for the upcoming tournament. Please drop off your bottles to support these young female athletes.
