Ball Hockey (Saturdays) [QE Park]
This is a weekly pick-up ball hockey game, open to everyone who is 18+. I'll bring the balls and some extra sticks. Goals are there already. If you're a goalie, you're especially welcome! If no goalies come, then we'll play a version of good old-fashioned street hockey (with small targets or slots). If you don't have a stick, let us know and we'll make sure to bring enough spares. We recommend gloves (even if they're just gardeners gloves) and shin-guards (soccer ones will do if you don't have hockey shins). Helmets are always a good idea too, even though most don't wear them. There's a small fee for this pick-up: Just $2, all of which goes to The Soccer Project Foundation. The SPF helps local, under-served youth to play organized sports (not just soccer but hockey and other sports too). The emphasis is on chill attitudes. Any agro at all and a player will be shown the exit and not welcomed back. Fun, friendly, good times only! • What to bring Hockey stick. Shin guards, gloves and helmet are highly recommended but not required. If you're a goalie, bring your equipment!

What we're about

Play Vancouver organizes drop-in games for adults in most major team sports: soccer, ultimate, touch rugby, flag football, beach volleyball, ball hockey, and lacrosse.

We also organize bar-game nights and lawn-game afternoons -- e.g., darts, shuffleboard, bocce, petanque, and many more.

You can expect a well-organized and welcoming session because our organizers have shed-loads of experience in, and a deep-seated passion for, the sports they're managing. For example, we have in our arena of organizers a former Canadian national rugby player and former Canadian national swimmer (yes, we hope to offer water-polo soon), and even a current world top-10 Crokinole player.

Join in the fun and fitness. Meet new friends. Bring old friends along.

A note or two on costs:

We have permits for many of our sessions, and so we must charge a nominal fee to cover permit and insurance costs. Some parks, for the events we're running, don't require permits. But for these events, we do encourage donations, which go to The Soccer Project Foundation (http://www.soccerproject.org/), our non-profit arm which helps under-served youth participate in organized sports and to receive crucial tutorial services to help them complete high school.

AND... if you'd like to play in one of our rec. sports leagues, which help to generate the brunt of our funding for youth sports and education -- please check out our website: PlayVancouver.Org (http://www.playvancouver.org)

Hope to see you on a field or court, or at a bar-game night, soon!
