News and Announcements
Falcons Field Hockey Club, in partnership with Delta parks have created an indoor league for both boys and girls at the new South Delta Recreation Gym in Tsawwassen. The league will incorporate a 4 on 4 indoor style with modified rules for ages 10-12 and 13-15 year olds. Sticks will be provided as well as jerseys. It’s fast, fun and a great way to extend the short outdoor season while improving your individual skills, a must for those players who are trying to go further with high school, regional and provincial teams. It runs from Nov. 5 – Dec. 17 every monday and promises to be as popular as our Adult League currently running from October – March. Spaces are limited and going fast so be sure to sign up right away. Here is the ad to look for in the Delta Parks Leisure Guide online. Registration is currently only by phone at (604) 952.3000 or view online at www.deltarec.ca.

Tsawwassen was well represented by three local athletes who also picked up some medals at the recent U16 National Field Hockey Championships held in Surrey , B.C. Vanessa Pearson and Annika Taylor in goal were on the BC Blue U 16 team which came away with the gold medal. They finished 2nd in pool play and came up against a very strong team from Ontario in the final. BC scored first from a penalty corner in the first half but Ontario came back to tie it up in the second half. The game went into overtime but was still tied at 1-1 at full time. A very exciting shoot-out followed with BC going on to win and take the gold medal.
Josh Kitagawa was a member of the BC Blue which came first in pool play but unfortunately lost 2-0 to Ontario in an exciting final and went on to take the silver medal.
Even though most of their summer was spent training at a fairly intense level for this national event all three players maintain that it was a fantastic experience to represent your province and even better to come away with a medal !
All three are members of the Falcons Field Hockey Club in Tsawwassen and play in both the Ladies/Mens Fall League and the Spring Junior League .
Many of you have been asking about the game schedules. We are very close on posting them but unfortunately some information is not available yet. League schedules will be distributed to clubs soon. Stay tuned Thank you again!
