It is now official. After many trials and tribulations, and with much lobbying by our Club President as well as many other club members, we are finally getting a turf field at Lower Sherman, alongside the curling rink.
Based on a report from Island Health stating that artificial turf causes no substantial effect on players' health, the majority of North Cowichan councillors voted recently to approve the building of a turf field for the Cowichan Valley Soccer Association.
If all goes according to schedule, the project should be completed and the field ready for use in November.
