We need volunteers to help cook, sell, laugh and clean on the day.

There are 5 different 1.5 hour time slots available and we have allocated slots to different teams.  Of course it will be fine if you can only help in a different timeslot than that allocated.

8.30am – 10.00am = C/D Grade boys (4 people)

10.00am – 11.30am = C/D Grade Girls (4-5 people)

1.00pm – 2.30pm = A Grade Boys – both Teams (5-6 people)

Please let me know ASAP if you are available to help in one of the slots. Howie’s Mobile: 0422652696

I hope to hear from you

Targeted at players of all abilities, including those that have never picked up a stick before, it’s a fun, active and educational way to keep kids entertained and playing hockey during the school holidays. They’ll develop their core skills guided by Hockey NSW accredited coaches in programs that take course over a single day using our revolutionary new Joey Ball from Kookaburra.

The clinics start from $47 (turf fees may vary prices) and registration is completed online. I have provided the link below to make the registration process easier.
