What does World League 2 mean for WVFHC?

▲Top

WVFHC was approached by Field Hockey Canada to host World League 2 following our successful role in hosting the Men's US-Canada Series last summer.  To be invited to host this prestigious tournament is a testimony to our wonderful membership and to the passion for field hockey on the north shore.

WVFHC is working hard to enable our members to benefit from this unparalleled opportunity to see international-level field hockey in our own backyard. These include:

•  volunteer roles to help host and learn from this event
•  access to ticket sales
•  unique opportunities for our Spring League players to be ball kids and team kids at the games

If you have a question or idea for getting involved, please contact emma@wvfhc.com
