HarbourCats Announce 2022 School Spirit Day!

Baseball is Back! Best Field Trip of the year once again offered by Mayfair Optometric Clinic and the HarbourCats.

For Immediate Release

February 16, 2022

Victoria, BC – After a crazy two years without baseball, the Victoria HarbourCats are looking forward to playing again and would like to invite all elementary, middle and high schools in Greater Victoria to come and have some fun again and join us at the ballpark four our fifth annual Mayfair Optometric Clinic School Spirit Game!


The response over the first four years of this event has been incredible, with nearly 2,000 plus students and teachers taking part each season and over 3,000 students and teachers participating in 2019.  In fact our 2019 game was the highest attended game of that season!  Join us again this year as we celebrate the return of HarbourCats baseball and give your students the best field trip of the year!

“Dr. Taylor and Mayfair Optometric Clinic are proud participants in School Spirit Day,” said Mary Lou Newbold, CEO of the company.   “As much as 80% of a child’s learning is through vision.  Working with the HarbourCats and School Spirit Day is a great way to remind parents and teachers of the importance of kids getting annual eye exams.  It’s a really fun day for everyone and we LOOK forward to finally getting back to this again this year!”

This is a fun, low-cost attendance option for a great June field trip, for classrooms or for the entire school!   Just $5 per attendee, General Admission* (GA seats guaranteed, but schools who sign up early may get upgraded to premium seats at no extra cost subject to availability!). Like 2018 and 2019, we have kept the start time for the game at 11:00 am (from our usual 1:00 pm start time), to allow students and faculty to enjoy more of the game.

To book your tickets or for more information, please contact Christian J. Stewart, Assistant General Manager, by email: or phone:  Office: (778) 265-0327

The Victoria HarbourCats have also partnered again with Wilson’s Transportation to offer a discounted rate on booking a bus for your students to get to and from the game at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park, should you require it.  For 2022, Wilson’s will be offering schools a rate of $10 per passenger.

Thinking of a Year-End Staff Party for Teachers and Staff?

The HarbourCats also invite you to take advantage of our exciting group ticketing options this season, that may be suitable for a year-end party for staff and teachers – the Strathcona Rooftop Third Base Party Deck and our First Base Wilson’s Group Upper Deck Experience.

Third Base Party Deck

Located just beyond third base, down the left field foul line, our group Party Deck will put you and your staff right in the middle of the action and provide a unique view of the game.  Designed to be a casual space for mingling, socializing and watching baseball (think, big, backyard bash), the Party Deck can accommodate 50-100 people.  The deck can be reserved on a ticket only basis, or we can bundle in food and drink options from our fantastic food truck vendors.  Prices (based on 50 people minimum) begin at $1000 ($20 per person).

The Upper Deck Experience

Located on the concourse, just behind first base, the Upper Deck Experience allows fans to enjoy the game from the top of a classic, red, open-topped, Double Decker bus!  The experience also includes use of the lower level of the bus (the Lounge) and the space between the bus and the main seating area (the Patio) including (as an upgrade option) our new Rail Side Tables.  Suitable for groups of 25-50 people, the Upper Deck Experience is effectively your own personal suite for the night and when bundled with food, drink and other corporate VIP perks, it will provide your staff with one of the most memorable nights they will ever have at the park.  Upper Deck packages begin at $750 (tickets only) (25 people minimum)($30 per person).
