Comox Valley United appeals to district to support field house proposal
The Comox Valley United Soccer Club is looking for an approximate $150,000 contribution from the Comox Valley Regional District to help construct a field house next to the Vanier turf field.
The CVUSC previously contributed $400,000 to the Vanier Turf project. The site lacks adequate storage, and washrooms/change rooms — which are required for women’s league play, senior youth teams and the local men’s team.
“The field house has been a long planned venture,” club president Stefan Szkwarek said in a May 12 presentation to the CVRD Sports Centre Commission. “We have a bit of a work-around right now where visiting teams go to the Valley View clubhouse to change but we need to eventually get full compliance with this (Vancouver Island Soccer League rules), and get change rooms at our turf.”
