The Hockey Victoria Junior Country Championships are a great way for players to improve their skills by playing against teams and players from all over Victoria, and a great way to make new friends in the hockey community. The Championships also provide another step in the pathway to selection in regional teams such as the Western Wildcats which will participate in the Junior State Championships from July 1 to 4.
