The Australian Olympic Committee #HaveAGo campaign encourages people to play a sport at the grassroots level, and develop new passions, friendships and new skills.
The early finish to the 2021 winter hockey season and the ongoing COVID restrictions give us a slightly longer break than normal between the end of the winter season and the start of the summer season. But this gives us a great opportunity to encourage others to #HaveaGo at Hockey.
The summer hockey season will begin on November 8 (COVID permitting), with teams available for players of all ages, all genders and all levels of experience (recent or otherwise). Games are midweek, so you can combine having a go at hockey with continuing to play your normal weekend summer sport.
With costs to play even lower than usual, relaxed uniform rules and a social atmosphere for the games, summer is a great time to #HaveAGo at hockey. Check the details here.
Boys and girls aged 5 to 12 can also #HaveAGo by joining a Hookin2Hockey program to learn the basic skills of hockey and strategies of the game. This is a great way to develop confidence and to make new friends. The next program will begin on Thursday October 14, 4.30 pm at Lloyd Reserve, Windsor Rd, Newtown (opposite Balyang Sanctuary).
Summer hockey is also a great time to start a journey as a team coach or umpire, and we are always looking for help in these areas.
We are happy to welcome new members at any time of the year, and now is the ideal time to find out more and try out the game. Why not give us a call. Round up your friends to come along too.
