Welcome 2022 and all our Members

A warm welcome back to Wanderers Hockey and 2022.  It’s been a tough start to the year, not easy to run a hockey club without an Astro!  But short-term pain for long term gain, we know it will be worth it and look forward to our new, world-class playing facility at the end of March.  Thank you to all our members for your patience during this time, we appreciate it and are doing everything we can to start the season as smoothly as possible.

Astro Refurbishment

wanderers club Hockey News, January 2022 5

Despite the high levels of rain we have been experiencing over the first few weeks of the year, we are on track with the project. The old carpet and rubber e-layer have been stripped off the asphalt and we have moved them off the surface area into the carpark.  We have also started trenching for the wiring for the sprinkler systems.  It’s all happening and we can’t wait!

Senior Hockey Update

With league only starting after Easter (22 April) it has been a slower start to senior hockey.  The committee are working tirelessly to secure an astro for preseason training, finalizing fees etc.  We are hoping to communicate all plans to our members very soon, watch this space.

Senior Indoor

The SG Senior Indoor League is due to start in February at Cliffview School.  We are very excited to have entered 2 Men’s Premier League teams, 2 Ladies Premier League Teams and 1 League 1 team.  Some of our members will be playing indoor for the first time and it’s great to have so many members keen.  Goodluck, lets show them how it’s done out there!

Junior Hockey Update

2022 Junior Hockey Registration

Junior Outdoor Registration is open, season starting Saturday 5th March at Reddam Waterfall on the weekends, and St David’s during the week, until our Astro, is complete.  See below all registration info.  We have some exciting changes planned to further improve our offering and are looking forward to the season ahead.  We appeal to new and old members to register ASAP as spots are limited and demand is high!

Junior 5s and Indoor

We have 7 teams playing in the Southern Trappers 5s league at St Stithians, from u13 – u18.  Our teams and coaches are doing great amongst tough competition.  It’s a good preseason for our members, and they are having loads of fun out there.

The Junior Indoor League hasn’t had the best start, with only our u13 girls playing in the league due to too few team entries from other clubs.  Hopefully, the next series will be back with a bang!  Good luck to our u13 girls and Coach Spencer.

Yours in Hockey,

Gill Pringle
