Introducing Elbow Bumps and Skip the Skirt Reminder

Posted by Vancouver Island Ladies Field Hockey Association on Mar 06 2020 at 01:19PM PST in Season 2019-20

VILFHA’s Executive are monitoring information and direction from the BC Centre for Disease Control and the Public Health Agency of Canada regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). While health professionals say the risk associated with the spread of the illness remains low in BC, we are asking as a precaution that teams do not shake hands at the end of each game. We suggest using your chicken wings (elbow bumps) as an alternative.

We are committed to keeping players safe and will continue to keep you updated as the situation progresses. For now, we ask you please share with your teams to have friendly and gentle elbow bumps at the end of games! Thank you for your cooperation. For more information on COVID-19, see

Also a friendly reminder that on Saturday, March 7, VILFHA is sponsoring the* “Skip the Skirt” fundraiser* in honour of Jen (van Dyk) Budding. Funds raised will go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada. Players are encouraged to play wearing something other than their skirt (please make sure teams still wear matching shirts and socks!). Players will be ‘fined’ $5 (or donation) for not having their skirt. See link below for more details:

Thank you for your support!
