University players pass on their experience to U18s
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.
