I had a friend give me some locations for drop-in floor hockey one time, but I have, of course, lost the piece of paper with the information on it. (And I never made it out to any games myself, for various reasons.)
I'll see if I can dig it up. The info might be outdated, though.
The Eagle Ridge league that plays in winter is good quality ball hockey for the most part. Not cheap compared to small gym floor hockey, but it's a significant step up. I've been involved in the leagues for 3+ years now and really enjoy it.
If people with experience are interested in playing in an organized league, send me a PM.
In terms of small gym hockey, one option for you would be the YMCA downtown (Quadra and Broughton). They play on Friday's at 6:30.
I don't know if they are still playing, but the Fernwood Community Centre on Gladstone used to run ball hockey twice a week from 7-9:30 so that would be an option. It was cheap, something like $4-5 a night. But I haven't played there in a year so you'd have to give them a call.
Me and my Step Dad play at Belmont High on Tuesday Nights @ 8. we play 4 v 4 with 2 subs aside usually but if you're looking for skill its not really the right group for you. Im 16, so guys I'm play against are at least double my age. Yes they have good shots but for the most part none of them are very fast or have very good hands. Im the other way around which makes me rack points. Either way it's moreso a private thing but if you live out near Langford and you're really interested PM me.
(Wings fan coming in peace)Hey guys if anyone is interested Me my brothers have a team made for the summer league coming up at eagle ridge which starts in april. Its competitive league and its going to be a blast. We are looking for 1-2 more forwards. We are wanting someone who is experienced, fun and easy going. We are going in to win and be competitive but we also want to have a good group of guys who all get along.
It is 200 per person, for 1-2 games a week and playoffs ect. If your interested plz PM me and ill give u additional info thanks guys.
I can attest that the YMCA on quadra has some great pick up games every friday night. Lots of the guys from the eagle ridge/panorama/tillicum VBHL league go there to practice/warm up/have some fun.
Played there for a couple years but sadly had to move for work. Miss it. If you wanna go just call after 11:00 am friday morning to get a spot - call soon. this time of year it usually tops up at the 20 man limit fairly early.
The leagues fun, give it a shot if you got the equipment. You can go on the vbhl website and throw yourself on as a spare list. Good way to get a few cheap chances to play instead of paying up front for a season.
Theres some other groups around too, talk to people at the Y on friday night and you can usually find some more groups. I've heard fernwood is good.
