Are you looking to improve your mental and physical health? Is your balance, flexibility or strength decreasing with age or lack of activity? Is your mind always on high alert? Is your athlete/(son/daughter) in need of building strength, flexibility, or balance without the pounding on the body from a gym or running? Hot Yoga, Yin yoga or vinyasa classes can help with all of this.

MISSION STATEMENT/LEAGUE OBJECTIVE:
Promote the game of field hockey through teaching basic fundamentals while having fun and building self-esteem. Growing from 140 players to currently over 550 young girls playing and more then 65 VOLUNTEER coaches, our goal is for the girls to prepare to play at the next level. (Ex. juniors to seniors, seniors to middle / high school teams). Although many games are competitive the outcome of the game is not our purpose. WE ask that all Coaches, Parents and fans support the players in a positive manner.
The BCYFHL provides an opportunity for girls in grades 3-8 to learn and play the game of field hockey while. also understanding the rules of the game. The league is comprised of 2 divisions: JUNIORS: 8+gk (9v 9) Saturdays, Grades 3 to 5; SENIORS: 11v 11, Sundays, Grades 6 to 8; and several Friday nite games for both divisions. Girls must play on their own town team. Should a player reside in a town that does not have a team, that player may play on one of the BCYFH teams.
In the event of ANY postponed/rescheduled games, notifications will be posted on this site.

The BENCH side is for PLAYERS ONLY. All fans, parents, spectators are to be on the FAR SIDELINE. Do NOT sit BEHIND the ENDLINE, behind the goal cage or on the Bench side where players are. ANYONE ASKED BY A REFEREE OR HOST SITE ADMINISTRATOR TO MOVE IS TO COMPLY.

Goggles, if worn, MUST be worn over the eyes, not on the forehead. Each town program decides if their team will wear goggles. No mouthguard can be attached to the goggles!!
3. Fans / parents should limit their comments to their teams/ players while watching the games. Let the coaches coach their team/players without competing with the distractions from the fans. Some parents are distracting the players from the coach's instructions. Parents ENJOY the MOMENT!! Life goes quick and this is a time to relax and watch. Encourage all players.
