Marian Hockey Registration and Information 2016
Welcome to Marian Hockey
Winter Hockey is played in Terms 2 & 3
Modules being offered by Waikato Hockey Association this year are:
Kiwi Sticks Development: this stage is designed to introduce players to the sport of hockey on a quarter turf. Some schools will have sufficient numbers to enter teams wholly of Years 1 and 2 however players up to Year 6 that have minimal experience at playing hockeyare eligible and where possible are encouraged to commence their hockey journey in this stage.
Kiwi Sticks: this stage is designed for the more experienced hockey players, more likely to be from Years 4 through to Year 6 and will be played on half turf.
The 2016 season starts on Saturday 7 May with a "festival” style tournament held over the first two weeks with grading of teams following for the next few weeks. Depending on numbers of entries we aim to have two shorter version games each week.
All games are played Saturday mornings or early afternoons at Gallagher Hockey centre, Queens Ave, Hamilton.
The final playing numbers and mix will determine which modules we enter teams in.
Every team will require a Coach, Manager and an Umpire for every game.
Waikato run numerous coaching and referee courses for those who are interested.
