The Victorian Men’s and Women’s Country Championships are always a great fun weekend of hockey – a great chance to play WITH players from other clubs instead of AGAINST them.
The Championships are held over the Queen’s Birthday weekend June 7 to 9. The Women’s Championships are held at Stead Park, Corio, while the Men’s Championships are played in Melbourne. There are usually 6 or 7 games for the weekend – but before you faint at the thought – they are shortened games. Teams from all areas of Victoria participate so it’s also a good chance to catch up with people you may have played with in other clubs and Associations. More details here.
Hockey Geelong invites players to participate in these teams:
- Senior men
- Masters men – must be aged over 35
- Senior women – A grade and B grade
- Masters women – must be aged over 35
These Championships are also a great chance for U15 and U17 players to try out this competition.
In 2013, the Hockey Geelong teams finished as Winners in the Men’s Masters, A1 Women and Women’s Masters with the B grade women finishing as Runners Up. What a great effort, with many Newtown players participating in these teams.
