Team Reports Under 7 Rookies. It was wonderful to see so many excited young players eager to start a great season of hockey. It was great to see them having a go and working together as a team for the first time and I cannot wait to see them grow and develop their skills. They started their session with an introduction to some of the basic skills of hockey and then progressed into some drills shooting towards the goal. They played a short game and then ended with an exciting game of ‘dog and bone’ which was a real hit with all the players. A huge congratulations goes to Levi who was awarded Player of the Week and Matilda who received the encouragement award. Thanks Jade and Maddi Coach Jade and CoCoach Maddy with RDO Rob and Levi and Matilda

Under 16 Whites played really well as a team today. Despite many members being new, having three away and no subs, they pulled it together to win 6-0. However, it must be noted, that the game looked a lot closer and was tougher than the scores indicate. Congratulations to Rhys (4), Zali (1) and Lucy (1) on their goals and the rest of the team for getting the ball to them. There was also a great defence, which was really consistent, and Paul, the coach especially acknowledged this today with the player of the day being awarded to Michelle Meadows for her consistency in the backs. We are also greatly indebted to Zoe and Sophie who filled in playing a second game and still managed to push and push themselves to be in the right place and to keep going.
