1st Division Men

Welcome to 2017 Piggie Nation, this week we look forward to continuing the work accomplished in the fall of 2016.

The team has yet to take to the fields of Piggie Park due to the snow and freezing condition but thankfully our long term partner Shawnigan Lake School has allowed us the use of their all-weather sports complex. The boys have been able to take the cold and night weather out of the equation and strictly focus on preparation of what lies ahead. 

The Piggies play the usual home and away schedule with the three Division 1 clubs of the island – Nanaimo, Westshore and Port Alberni – mixed with a couple of exhibition matches.  From there, a play off round and Island final.  This year, the play-off format beyond the Island, s that the top 2 island teams move into the BC wide playoffs.   Based on the format, it’s possible that two island teams could meet in the BC final (or two Vancouver teams for that matter). 

2nd/3rd Division Men

The club is also putting together a second team (2nd/3rd Division) team this spring with 23games scheduled at the moment.  So brush off those boots Piggies and come out for a run – Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday!  We especially encourage our recent U18 BC Champions to step up and join for the spring senior season.

The boys have had a full recharge and are aching to launch into this spring half with the hearts of all Cowichan members close and far. 

Premier Women

The ladies spring season doesn’t start until their spring campaign until February 18th with a home match against CW.  The Prem Women finished the fall season in 4th place, 1 point behind 3rd place Capilano.  

The spring schedule is very challenging for the Piggies – much more so than some of their competitors.  Regardless they will take each weekend as they come and make the run for a play-off spot in April!

Teams and Events Schedules

All teams schedules and other club events are online.  Please check back every few weeks as things do change from time to time.

Flip Cup Tournament

After the insanely fun Flip Cup Tournament last spring, where we combined our love of Red Arrow Piggy Pale Ale with bar games, internal club competition and trash talk, we’re brining it back!

It’s $30 per team, includes 2 pitchers of beer.  Get a team of 6 together and join in the fun! Team uniforms are highly encouraged!

If you’re a solo looking for a team, contact Kaelyn or Quinn.  Everyone is welcome!
