NEW TO HOCKEY U11 & U13 SQUAD SESSIONS:
The first 2 NEW to Hockey squad sessions kicked off for all U11 and U13 players who are NEW to hockey. These sessions will enable new players to learn the rules, positions, and basic skills at a slower pace, it is also an opportunity for new hockey parents to get out on the field and learn the basics so you can support them at home.
The remaining 2 sessions will be on THURSDAY evenings so the kids can attend regular training with their team mates and receive additional basics coaching.
Remaining DATES: Thurs 5th Mar, Thurs 12th Mar

JUNIOR COACHES NEEDED – CORRECTION – U15Cs & U17Cs:
In last week’s eNews I put the call out for junior coaches, and I listed the incorrect teams. There are 2 Junior teams still requiring a coach and they are U15C’s and U17C’s. If you are interested in coaching either of these teams James would love to hear from you.
All Junior coaches receive free playing fees for them or their child, and for those who may not have coached before, but a passionate about developing kids in sport then we have will provide you with guidance, resources and access to experienced coaches to set you up for success.
