It has been a difficult start to the year for the Hockey section. With the second wave of the Covid Pandemic affecting all our lives, we had to wait until we received feedback from SA Hockey on the way forward for hockey, and the necessary measures required to resume our return to play safely. We have been working hard behind the scenes to re-open our venue, and to welcome our members back onto the pitch. We are happy to have received our updated venue certificate and we can now resume hockey in line with the SA Hockey standard operating procedures.
Unfortunately, due to the current curfew and limited preseason time, we will not be running a summer league in February. We hope, come September, the summer league can resume, it sure is a great vibe!
Senior League Hockey
South Gauteng Hockey have indicated they are still hoping for league to start mid-March. No further information has been communicated at this stage. Will keep you all posted.
We hope to have our teams back on the turf in the next couple of weeks for preseason training. Coaches and captains will keep everyone updated in this regard.
Senior trials will take place on Thursday 4 February and Thursday 11 February. Please see below info and registration link:
2021 Junior Hockey registration is open. Our season will start on Saturday 6 March and run until the end of July. All info and the registration link can be found on our website:
Junior Indoor Hockey and Summer League
Due to Covid, we have withdrawn our juniors from the upcoming Giants indoor league, as we were wary of their safety in an indoor hockey facility. We have also postponed our much-anticipated Junior Summer League to later in the year. We are saddened by this and cannot wait to enjoy both formats in the near future.
Junior Pre-Season Coaching
We are excited to offer the below preseason coaching for our junior members. Please contact Alridge directly to get involved.
Look forward to seeing you all soon. We are doing our best to ensure you can all return to our wonderful Club safely and enjoy the game we all love!
