2017 VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT - May 19-22, 2017
Welcome to the 2017 Vancouver International Tournament, The VIT! Held traditionally over the May Long Weekend, the VIT has enjoyed over twenty years as one of the largest social field hockey tournaments on the West Coast. This year promises to be no different as we once again look forward to welcoming new and old friends alike.
2017 sees Burnaby Lake West Complex play host as our main tournament venue; three artificial field turfs and a beer garden await, rain or shine. There are five tournament divisions this year including once again a women's masters division for the over 35's. FHBC looks forward to welcoming you all to what promises to be another hugely enjoyable tournament.
