Harry Schamhart Vikes Men's Hockey Scholarship Donation

The UVic Vikes Hockey Club has been around since the 1960s, playing in various leagues over the past 60 years. Since its inception in 2005, the team has found a home in the British Columbia Inter-Collegiate Hockey League. As the team’s original coach and current GM, Harry Schamhart remains a key contributor. He was instrumental to the creation of the league and his passion for player development has seen players excel on the ice and in the classroom. This is reflected in UVic’s 4 BCIHL championships (2006, 2008, 2011 & 2016) and in the team motto “pursuit of passion, pursuit of education”. In recognition of Harry’s invaluable contribution to hockey at UVic, hockey alumni and friends are coming together to support the creation of an endowed hockey scholarship in his name. This first-ever hockey scholarship will benefit the student athletes who, like Harry, give so much of their own time to continue the tradition of hockey excellence at the University of Victoria.

This new scholarship will help keep this tradition of excellence alive by giving the next generation of student athletes the ability to play high level university hockey right here at UVic where they belong. This award has successfully reached endowment. Top up gifts are gratefully accepted. Thank you for supporting the creation of this first-ever hockey scholarship in honour of Harry Schamhart and all of the coaches, volunteers and players who have given so much to the sport of hockey at UVic.

If you have any questions, please contact our Development Office at (250) 472-4924, or by email at giving@uvic.ca. Please note our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm. Thank you!
