It has been a busy month down at the Wanderers Astro.  Our Juniors are back at pre-season training, our senior sides are back at training, and life seems to be returning to some form of normality.  It is so great to see our members enjoying the club again and playing hockey.

Senior League Hockey

The Senior Hockey League is due to start on Saturday 13 March.  Wanderers have entered 8 Men’s and 6 Ladies sides into the league.  The coaches and captains are assisting with the final team league admin and I would like to thank them all for their help with this.  We are all looking forward to less paperwork and more hockey-playing going forward.  Good luck to all our coaches and teams, lets show them the Wanderers way!

Senior Trials

Senior trials took place on Thursday 4 February and Thursday 11 February.  We had a great turnout, and with the help of captains and coaches were able to run a successful trial process within the Covid requirements.  Thank you to all those who came down, especially the new members.  Welcome to Wanderers, enjoy your time with us and the season ahead.

Thank you to Caxton Local Media for coming down to our trials and taking some great action shots.

A special mention to Katelijn Aerts, our new Junior Hockey committee representative, for running a very successful online parent information evening on the 10th of February.  It was great to outline our season plans and answer parents’ questions.  It was the first evening of its kind and will not be the last.  Thank you Katelijn!

Hockey Committee

The hockey committee met on Monday 22 February to brainstorm our 2021 plans and goals for the year, and to further improve our offering to our members.  However, we are still desperately looking for members to assist the committee, as well as a Chairperson.  Please contact Gill should you be interested.

Good Luck to all our teams as they prepare for the season ahead.  We look forward to seeing you down at the Astro very soon!
