In the mid-2000s, an influx of ultimate talent hopped aboard BC Ferries to the University’s Vancouver Island campus in Victoria BC and helped revive the historic program, Uvictim, in 2005. A dedicated few, this group was motivated to create a lasting legacy. Early pioneers that led this revival include names such as John Norris, Rhett Vernon Jarvis, Clayton Howlett, Graeme Barber and the Underhill Brothers. Although generations of amazing players have come through the program, it is the the values and ethos of UVictim that has grown the program to its current height. What started as an understaffed team that could barely scrimmage at practice quickly became a fully-fledged program with both women’s and men’s teams competing in the USAU series. The University of Victoria also boasts a strong reputation for committing players to elite club and national teams. UVic’s women’s team, the Vixens, took the program to a new level by qualifying for the College Championships in 2014 and 2015. Now, the men’s program will face their greatest challenge as their first college championships approaches.
