Vision

To provide an environment in which participants can enjoy their hockey and interact socially with teammates and the wider community. Team members will develop a passionate, deep understanding of all aspects of hockey (individual and team skills) and a strong commitment to doing what it takes to produce sustained success in sport at this level.

 

Aims

  • Provide quality training involving development of individual and team skills.
  • Provide an environment that enables and encourages players to earn selection into Regional and Provincial teams.
  • Develop team leadership and mentor programs.
  • Develop short and long-term team goals, team rules and a positive team culture (involving sportsmanship, respect for others, commitment, etc).
  • Establish regular coaching, player and team reviews to reflect on what works and where improvements should be made.
  • Encourage coaches to undertake coach education opportunities so they continually strive to improve.
  • Establish resources (financial, personnel) to fund and support coaches and player performance and training.

Equipment
1. Hockey stick:  The stick must not be shorter than the head of the femur and not longer than the belly button.  Don’t buy a big stick, hoping that your child will grow into it.  A stick that is not the right size will hamper the development of your child’s hockey skills.
2. Dimple hockey ball (not a smooth one) for practising at home; it is not necessary to bring a ball to practices.
3. Shin pads.
4. Gum guard. (No child will be allowed to play without a gum guard).
5. Bottle of water.

All your child’s equipment must be clearly marked with his/her name.

Matches
• Matches take place on a Thursday.
• You will receive a letter/email with all the details as soon as we have confirmation of fixtures.
• If your child is not dressed correctly, with shin pads and a mouth guard, they WILL NOT be allowed to play the match.
• Please try to arrange transport for your child should it be necessary.  If you are unable to arrange transport, please contact his/her coach timeously.

Rain
Hockey is a winter sport and therefore practices will continue as far as possible.  Should the weather be very bad, practices will be cancelled by 12:00.  Please check for alerts on School Communicator.

Visie

Om ‘n omgewing te skep waar spelers hokkie kan geniet en kan sosialiseer met hul spanmaats en gemeenskap. Spelers ontwikkel ‘n passie en uitgebreide kennis in alle aspekte van die sport (individueel en spanvaardighede) en deursettingsvermoë om sukses te behaal.

 

Doelwitte

  • Voorsien gekwalifiseerde afrigting en ontwikkel individuele- en spanvaardighede.
  • Skep geleenthede vir spelers om op streeks- en provinsialevlak gekies te word.
  • Ontwikkel leierseienskappe en mentorprogramme.
  • Skep lang en korttermyn doelwitte, spanwerk en gesonde kompetisie. (sportmanskap, respek vir mekaar, kommunikasie, ens.)
  • Skep geleenthede waar terugvoering van die afrigter en spelers positief deurgegee kan word om optimale groei te verseker.
  • Skep geleenthede waar afrigters meer ondervinding kan kry in die sport en hulself tot die beste van hul vermoeë kan verbeter.
  • Opbou van toerusting en fondse vir afrigters en spelers om afrigting en sukses te bevorder.

 

 

Oefeninge
Maak asseblief seker dat u kind die korrekte klere, skeenbeskermers en mondskerm dra.

 

Klere
MEISIES: Groen kortbroekie en groen/geel hempie, groen/geel kouse en tekkies
SEUNS: Groen kortbroekie, groen/geel hempie, groen/geel sokkies en tekkies

Toerusting
1. Hokkiestok:  Die stok mag nie korter as die heupbeen en nie langer as die naeltjie wees nie.   Moenie ‘n groot stok koop met die verwagting dat u kind gou gaan groei nie.  ‘n Stok wat nie die korrekte lengte is nie, sal u kind se ontwikkeling van hokkievaardighede belemmer.

3. Skeenbeskermers
4. Mondskerm (Geen kind sal toegelaat word om sonder ‘n mondskerm te speel nie)
5. Bottel water

Al u kind se toerusting moet duidelik met sy/haar naam gemerk word.

Wedstryde
• Wedstryde vind Donderdae plaas.
• U kind sal ‘n brief ontvang sodra ons die tye van die westryde bevestig het.
• Indien u kind nie korrek aangetrek is nie, met hul skeenbeskermer en mondskerm, sal hulle NIE toegelaat word om die wedstryd te speel NIE.
• Indien nodig, probeer asseblief om vervoer vir jou eie kind te reël.  Indien u nie vervoer kan reël nie, kontak u kind se afrigter so gou as moontlik.

Reën
Hokkie is ‘n wintersport en daarom sal oefeninge voortgaan.  Indien dit hard reën, sal oefeninge teen 12:00 gekanselleer word.  Maak asseblief gebruik van iText *120*494*777*19*# of bel die skool en druk 7, om uit te vind of oefeninge voortgaan.
