Hockey Huddle – This Girl Can Week

Newtown City Hockey Club is a supporter of This Girl Can Vic, and is joining VicHealth’s inaugural This Girl Can Week. This Girl Can Week (18-24 March 2019) aims to encourage more women to give physical activity a go, or return to exercise after a break.

This Girl Can Week has some great offers right around Victoria, all designed to inspire women to get active, whether that’s to try something new or returning to a past activity.

VicHealth Acting CEO Dr Lyn Roberts said This Girl Can – Victoria week was about empowering everyday women to get active in their local community without feeling judged.
“We want all women – no matter how sweaty they get, how red their face is or how good they are – to feel comfortable about getting out there and giving physical activity a go. That’s what This Girl Can – Victoria is all about,” Dr Roberts said.

And that’s how we feel at Newtown Hockey Club too. Everyone is welcome to have a go at hockey, regardless of age, previous experience (or not) and skill level.

If you have played hockey in the past, or have watched your children play and thought ‘maybe I could do that’, here is your opportunity to rediscover those lost skills, or learn some new ones.

Join the Hockey Huddle

Sunday March 24, 10 am to 11.30 am.  Skills exploration and game play from 10 to 10.45 am, followed by morning tea and a chat.

King Lloyd Reserve, 80 Windsor Rd, Newtown

Join us for a fun, social ‘have a go’ game of hockey. We will help you brush up on the game skills or learn some new ones. Equipment is provided – and the event is free! So all you need to do is come along. Bring a friend too. No special clothing is needed, just some comfortable clothing you can move around in.

If you discover a passion for hockey, we can tell you all about the options for continuing to play – whether they are competitive or social.

The very successful This Girl Can Vic campaign was launched in March 2018, and inspired 1 in 7 Victorian women to get moving in 2018. The campaign features real Victorian women instead of professional athletes or airbrushed Instagram models and is about empowering women to feel comfortable in their bodies and in public spaces – regardless of their ability, how they look or how sweaty they get.

Newtown Hockey Season Launch 2019 @ King Lloyd Reserve
Apr 6 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Season Launch 2019

The 2019 hockey season will begin on April 27, and we are expecting another fantastic year of enjoyment with hockey and with friends.

Join us on Saturday April 6 for a day of fun, food, games and activities to kick off this hockey season.

If you are a Newtown Hockey Club member, come along, and bring your family and your friends. If you are not already a member, we would love you to come along and see what the Newtown Hockey Club can offer you.

What’s There To Do?

Get to know other members of the Club and try out your skills. Have a go at some of the hockey activities, or try the races or other games. We have the Jumping Castle lined up, and there’s the Giant Connect 4 and the Frisbee Challenge. Throw in the the Face Painter too and we are set for a great day.

Pick up a bargain at the pre-loved book stall, or get set for the winter hockey season with a hoodie or a nice warm jacket to go over your uniform.

Relax and enjoy the musical entertainment from Noah Vernon.

Put your thinking cap on for the Trivia Quiz – you might win a prize. Or buy a raffle ticket (or two) with some great prizes on offer – a meat pack from Town and Country Meats, or a fruit and vege hamper.

Rest and refresh after the games with a delicious fruit smoothie, or tempt your taste buds at the home made cake stall. Of course, you only eat cake after you have sampled the BBQ!

Lunch and refreshments are available for purchase but the activities are free so just come and join in. No need to bring anything – except maybe some nice weather and a chair or a rug. We have activities for the whole family, so come and try them out.

The KLR Cup Is On The Line

After lunch, get a ringside seat for the feature match – the Young Guns vs the Legends. Will the Young Guns be able to wrest the KLR Cup away from the Legends? The Newtown Hockey Club has been operating for 41 years, and the Legends team features many of the stalwarts of the Club. What they have lost in speed over the years, they make up for in game awareness, but the Young Guns have the speed and skill to make them work hard.

The Jumping Castle is fun for big and little kids.

Saturday Social Hockey @ King Lloyd Reserve
Apr 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Saturday Social Hockey Is Back! Hooray!

Do you like playing hockey but just want to play social hockey? Or have you never played hockey but thought you might like to have a go?

If you love playing hockey but don’t really have the time (or the fitness) to commit to training or regular competition, then Saturday Social hockey is just right for you.

Saturday Social hockey is the ideal place for adults, and even children, to begin playing hockey – or to make a comeback after a period of ‘retirement’. It’s a great opportunity to see if you still have the skills of your youth or to learn some new skills in a friendly and very informal environment. And if you need a rest – feel free to take a breather. Or if you can’t come every week – that’s not a problem. Come whenever you can.

Saturday Social hockey

Saturday Social hockey – fun for all ages

 

 

With players generally ranging in age from 6 to 65+, and a very flexible format, it’s a great way for families to play together, and a great way to meet new friends.

Afternoon tea is provided, so the catchup after the game adds another level of enjoyment to the day.

Club Fees are very reasonable. Purchase of Hockey Victoria and Hockey Australia membership provides insurance cover, and is encouraged but not compulsory. There’s no need to buy uniform, and we can loan you a hockey stick if you don’t have one of your own.

Many of our Saturday Social hockey players have discovered that they actually do have the skills and the desire to play hockey, and have rejoined the Club’s regular teams in the Hockey Geelong competitions.
