Six young ladies gave back to the Cowichan Field Hockey Association while home for Christmas from university. They all play for university varsity field hockey teams and brought their knowledge and skill to the gym to mentor the club’s U18 indoor teams.

The U18s are playing an indoor tournament at the Island Savings Centre Saturday and Sunday.

The competition includes teams from Shawnigan Lake School, Victoria and Alberta.

The ladies showed the girls the intensity they need to bring to the game and helped with the skills they’ve learned while at university.

The schedule for the U18 indoor tournament Saturday is as follows: Cowichan vs. Shawnigan Lake School, 9 a.m.; Cowichan 2 vs. Island Wildcats, 10 a.m.; Shawnigan Lake School vs. Alberta, 11 a.m.; Cowichan vs. Cowichan 2, noon; Alberta vs. Island Wildcats, 1 p.m.; Shawnigan Lake School vs. Cowichan 2, 2 p.m.; Island Wildcats vs. Cowichan, 3 p.m.; and Cowichan 2 vs. Alberta, 4 p.m.

On Sunday, it's Island Wildcats vs. Shawnigan Lake School, 9:30 a.m.; Alberta vs. Cowichan, 10:30 a.m.; the fourth- and fifth-place teams play at 11:30 a.m.; the third-place team faces the winner of the 11:30 a.m. game at 1 p.m. and the first- and second-place teams meet for the championship at 2 p.m.
