2020 is coming to an end and November has really raced by for the hockey section.  It has been a busy month of closing out the year and planning for the 2021 season.

1.  AGM

The Hockey AGM was held virtually on the 23rd November.  Thank you to those who made the effort to attend.  The existing hockey committee members have by and large served on the committee for the last 3 years, with many new ideas, changes and milestones being brought to the section. In particular, Ricky West, Roxane Groome, Liezl Steyn, Rich Krige and Lorcan Nurse have made way for new leadership, ideas and energy.

We would like to welcome:

Stu Philip and;

Katelijn Aerts – Junior Hockey Representative

to the 2021/2022 hockey committee.  We look forward to having you onboard, thank you for stepping up.  Unfortunately, the hockey section is still without a Chairperson as we say farewell to Lorcan.  Thank you to both Lorcan and John Walters, our treasurer, for their selfless and tireless work they have put in, it is appreciated.

2.  Junior Summer League

As the year draws to an end and January will be here in a minute, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Junior 8 a-side summer series, hence we will not be entering club teams into 5’s and indoor at the beginning of the year.

This will follow a similar format to our senior summer league, which is very popular.

The league will run from 22 Jan to 20 Feb, on Friday’s and Saturdays, 4-6 pm at the Wanderers. The idea is to create an affordable, fun preseason league for our juniors to participate, develop and socialize at our club, in a healthy safe environment.

This initiative is focused on building the hockey community and hence members and non-members are welcome to enter teams, so we can share our welcoming Wanderers spirit with the broader Hockey community.  See entry details below.

3.  Senior Summer League

Our mixed Summer League is in full swing down at the Astro on weekday evenings.  It’s always great to see our members participating in this, friendly, fun format.  Thank you to Scott for his time and ensuring the league is run smoothly and safely during Covid-19.

4.  Alridge Coaching Sessions

It has been great to see the interest and commitment from quite a few of our juniors enjoying private coaching sessions with our junior head coach, Alridge.  These sessions are open to all our members and can be booked directly with Alridge on 074 507 8706.
