Junior Hockey

 

Our u13 Girls and Boys competed in the annual Champ of Champs competition hosted at Randburg Astro.

A great performance by our boys’ team, finishing 3rd place.

Tough day out for our girls, but still managing to finish a good 5th position.

A wonderful experience for all our u13s before they move on to Colts hockey.  Lots of lessons learnt and fun had by all.
