Pre-Season Challenge
The men's and women's ones team were both involved in the pre-season challenge during March. The quality of competition in these competitions is always high with only two 'grades' available. Despite some hard fought, close run games in both the men's and the women's, neither side progressed to the finals. While the results may have not been what the teams wanted it was a great opportunity for teams to get back into hockey and for players to prove their case for playing in that higher grade they might be chasing. The count down is now on for early April and the first round of the real competition.
Uniforms and Gear
The club will be ordering more playing tops as well as shirts and shorts in the near future. If you need any items of uniform please let Alan Uhe know via email. In addition to playing gear the club also has walk out shirts, hoodies and jackets available to purchase.
For juniors there will be a selection of shirts available to try on at the first few training sessions at Coolamon. Feel free to confirm your size prior to ordering. Future emails will include a price list for all gear and directions how to order.
