WINTER HOCKEY 2023
Your child has shown an interest in playing hockey for our school this year. It is always great to see students wishing to take part and we are happy to have your child involved. Please discuss this commitment with them as it is a long season starting at the beginning of Term 2 (8th/9th May) and finishing in Term 3 (14th/15th August). Players will be required to attend a practice each week and be available to warm up before games.
All HB Year 7/8 hockey is 7-aside.
We will have three teams (Div 1 and Div 2) playing in the HB competition on Tuesday nights at Park Island, Hastings Unison Hockey Stadium or Waipukurau. The cost of playing Divisions 1 and 2 this year will be $80. This covers HB Hockey Registration, turf fees, and some equipment costs. A $30 deposit is required upon registration. For players that make Division 1 or Division 2, the $50 balance owing will need to be paid by Monday 15th May. This will be charged to your Hero account.
Our development teams will play on Mondays after school in a school-based competition on our TIS turf. The cost of playing ‘Development Division’ at school is $30 to assist with equipment and umpire costs. The $30 deposit is required upon registration.
Players need to have a mouth guard, shin pads and preferably have their own hockey stick. We supply team uniform hockey socks and a shirt (with PE shorts) or dress.
We do require assistance with managing, coaching & umpiring games. If parents are unable to help it may limit our number of teams. We would also love reliable, capable secondary school student volunteers. There are umpiring courses available if you’d like to volunteer!
All trials will be held at school. Beginner and undecided players should attend the trial on Thursday 23rd March and, if appropriate, we will invite them to attend the later trials. There is no guarantee that those trialling for our advanced 1st and 2nd teams will be placed in either of these. Please keep an eye on the on-line notices for further registration details and playing dates - once numbers are confirmed.
