Anyone know of any good adult coed ball hockey leagues in the Vancouver area? I've decided to play ball hockey next year and figure might as well do that than go to the gym (even grocery shopping with the gf lol!)

How old (20's, 30's etc), and how competitive?

Check out urban rec. There are a few leagues in the lower mainland. All co-ed and pretty fun to play in. But you have to use plastic sticks. That's the biggest downer I'd say.

Can vouch that urban rec is very fun! Fast-paced and a great workout, but relatively safe, and most teams are very sportsmanlike. However, like hockeyville said the plastic sticks are frustrating... they flex way too much and at the worst times.

If you live on the north shore, there's also "north shore ball hockey league" which plays on Sundays at the Brathwaite (I think?) Rec Centre close to the seabus. You can find them on facebook or google them. They use wood sticks though, so I'd highly recommend hockey gloves and some lightweight soccer-style shin pads if you're going to play there.
