Saturday Social Hockey is Here Again
Newtown City Hockey Club aims to help everyone participate in and enjoy the game of hockey which we all love.
Barriers such as age, lack of fitness or speed, cost may prevent some from enjoying this great game, so we are offering the perfect opportunity to play without worrying about these things. And as for skills – it’s like riding a bicycle. If you have played before, you never lose those skills and hockey brain – you just can’t run as fast. If you haven’t played before, it’s a great chance to learn some skills in a non-competitive atmosphere with a focus on enjoyment and participation.
Come and join the the “Saturday Social” hockey programme. Games are played on a high quality grass surface at King Lloyd Reserve, Windsor Rd, Newtown at 1.30 pm on Saturday afternoon – just like the old days.
Games are played with 2 halves of 25 minutes each – but any time you need a rest – that’s OK. The field is marked at 80% of normal field size, meaning less physical wear and tear and less running. Players include men, women, boys and girls – experienced players, ex-players and beginners – all are welcome. Come whenever you can – every week or just occasionally. The program will run until mid-August.
Fees are low – to cover the cost of insurance and basic club membership.
Uniform is not required. Just wear something comfortable to run in, including some shoes with reasonable grip. Shinguards and mouthguards are recommended. Bring your own stick if you have one – or we can loan you one.
