Your child’s heart will be pumping and the sweat flying during these friendly scrimmages. Rollerblading and hockey skills and drills are a part of the fun. Your child must come equipped with rollerblades, helmet with a cage, knee and elbow protection, and gloves.

Girl’s field hockey is coming to Bowen! Starting out as an introduction to field hockey, the objective is to get girls out learning the basic skills through drills and games while having fun and being active. As well as preparing the ones who wish to join the West Vancouver or North Shore leagues in the future. Ultimately, I am trying to encourage girls to get involved in a sport that can grow into a passion and love for the game. Participants will need cleats, shin guards, and mouth guards. And, if you have a field hockey stick, please bring it along. We will have some for you to borrow as well.

Instructor Biography: Bailey Jones Growing up on Bowen Island as an active kid, I always wanted to be involved in sports. I began playing soccer in grade 3 and am still playing today. As I got older I discovered field hockey and was avidly intrigued by the sport. I began playing in grade 6 and played through until grade 11, in both the West Vancouver Field Hockey Club and at West Vancouver Secondary School. Through the West Van league I was able to travel to California and participate in the Cal Cup tournament in 2009, as well as many other tournaments on the North Shore.

This program is geared for tennis players looking to hit a high volume of tennis balls and provides a great cardiovascular workout with minimal instruction.

While being involved with Tennis BC School Program I have coached over 30,000 students, mostly working with 5-18 years old. By using the Progressive Tennis approach and focusing on an overall tennis environment (physical development, tennis training and competition), I have managed to create a nearly 100% student retention rate. I believe I have left a great impact on the growth of participation in the game of tennis in the Lower Mainland area, especially at the grassroots level.

T e n n i s

I have coached for number of community centers throughout Vancouver and I have been delivering tennis programs to the Bowen Island community for the past 8 years. I have been receiving exceptional feedback from principals, teachers, parents, and students on all aspects of my coaching technique, organizational skills, and work ethic. I am dedicated to raising participation in the sport and increasing involvement with the game of tennis from an early age. I am committed in keeping up with modern coaching techniques and I strive towards being one of the leaders in the field.

Family Money Matters Workshop Series: Children & Money

Well dancers, we have already worked on some single step Jive, aka Single step East Coast Swing, in previous sessions. So it’s time to add in some Triple Step.

Be it country, contemporary or good ol’ Rock ‘n Roll, Triple step will have you dancing up a storm at any Bowen Island music event. I look forward to seeing you in dance class and working your moves at the Bowen festivities this coming summer!!
