Victoria-Class Cup 2022

Babcock is thrilled to be back for the 2nd annual battle for the Victoria-Class Cup, taking place at CFB Esquimalt Wurtele Arena in Victoria, B.C., on September 8th, in partnership with the Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC)!

In 2019, the Esquimalt MFRC in partnership with Babcock introduced the Victoria-Class Cup, a hockey fundraising event designed to be enjoyed by all members of the defence community and their families while supporting the MFRC. The Babcock team was thrilled to partner with the MFRC and faced off against the Senior Tritons. While we were defeated 8-2, the event was a huge success! The stands were filled with an energetic crowd enjoying a good game of hockey and a total of $5,500 was raised in support of the MFRC.

September 8th will see the second annual Victoria-Class Cup take place, and the Babcock Blues will be back in B.C. ready to face off against the MARPAC Selects!

The day is guaranteed to be filled with fun activities, food, prizes, a special appearance from the Victoria Royals Marty Marmot Mascot and a good ol’ hockey game!

Doors open at 1215 with a free BBQ for all attendees to enjoy. Opening ceremonies will begin at 1250, and puck drop will take place at 1300. There will be many opportunities to win prizes and participate in activities, and attendees are encouraged to bring cash for the 50/50 draw!

At Babcock, we are proud of the work that we do on the Victoria In-Service Support Contract, alongside the Royal Canadian Navy and our industry partners supporting Canada’s fleet of Victoria-Class submarines. We are thrilled to be able to develop partnerships with community organizations, such as the Esquimalt MFRC, which provides important services and programs for members of the CAF and their families.

We look forward to seeing you there…and remember Go Babcock Blues!

We are proud to announce that the Babcock Blues won the 2022 Victoria-Class Cup, with the score of 4-3.

Congratulations to the MARPAC Selects for a great game, and to Rob Sneath Memorial Trophy Winner, James Fletcher (Goalie) from the Babcock Blues, for his outstanding contribution and game winning saves.

Babcock is committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work, and we were proud to be able to continue our partnership with the Esquimalt MFRC and donated $5,000 towards their programs and efforts to support military members and their families.

Thank you to CFB Esquimalt and the Esquimalt MFRC for hosting another great event. We look forward to being back for the 3rd annual battle for the Victoria-Class Cup next year!
