6:00 p.m. start, all players receive some sort of recognition
Parents/sibling have a $5 cost at the door, this is a VHMB fundraiser event but it helps cover adult food cost as well (players are free with uniform return)
Blastball always starts the last Wedesday in May (the 30th), that give us a couple of weeks to get the teams competing in Georgian Bay up and running and it's usually a little warmer by then

We "must" have a copy of proof of age (birth certificate, etc.) on file for all players, please bring a photocopy with you, especially if you are new to Victoria Harbour
Photos will be done as early as possible in the season, often some are done at the first game, coaches will be notifed. If you are missing that night we will catch up with you later but you will be missing from the team photo!
VH Hornet Teams- Check yours for photos and other information -
Remember we can only post what you send us! If it's empty then nothing has been submitted-parents/coaches can send updates to firstname.lastname@example.org We will edit for privacy and reduce photos to 640X480 so that they upload/download quicker!
Important: Please read
Important Stuff- It's important that you call your coach if you are not going to your game! You signed up for a team sport and when you're not there it may mean they don't have enough players and could possibly forfeit their game! Please be considerate and let your coach know so that they can contact another player in a lower division to take your spot. If you don't call and then show up at your next game you may find a call up there prepared to take your spot and you will be subbing with them throughout the game. If we know you are coming to the game a substitute player won't be called up!

Victoria Harbour Sock Colors- Many have asked so we'll fill you in on the sock story- As you may know our official socks are Red on Right and Black on Left. This has been a Victoria Harbour tradition for the past 6 years or so. It all started when Jared Chapman and Alex McArthur were presented with a pair of black and a pair of red socks, their goal was to determine which looked best with our uniforms. When game time came they both came on the field with one black and one red sock (red on right so it could be remembered easily). Eventually the entire Peewee team had the same look and that year the team went on to win the GBMSL triple crown so the "socks" seemed to be working well. In the past few years it has spread down through the teams and continues to be the dominant choice on most of our teams today. Black sock on left & Colored sock on right!

Typically a set of uniforms will last 3-4 years (5-6 for younger teams) before needing replacing.
