Hockey is an exciting, fast paced dynamic sport. We run several teams for both boys and girls throughout a season that runs from mid march through to early September. Senior teams train twice a week and a game one evening a week. Top teams also have the opportunity to participate in several exciting long standing exchanges throughout the year.
Teacher in Charge: Gill Kearins
Warkworth Showgrounds and Rosedale Albany
Matches are as follows:
Senior Boys Wednesday evenings
Senior Girls Thursday evenings
Intermediate Boys either Monday or Tuesday evenings depending on the grade entered
Intermediate Girls Tuesday evenings
All teams may attend an additional "skills only" training on days TBC at the school on the new school turf.
TEACHER IN CHARGE
I am Mrs Gill Kearins. I have been teaching at Mahurangi for 9 years and am currently HOF physical education, health and sport. I have been involved with hockey both as a player and coach at both premier and representative levels for over 20 years so look forward to sharing my knowledge with new and upcoming players.
This is organised by individual managers for the teams. Students are expected to make their own way to the Warkworth Showgrounds if playing at home and for training. Transport is organised to take bags to the turf for trainings. A $5 donation is expected for away games down at Rosedale and parents where possible are on a roster to provide transport.
The cost is $240 for senior teams and $210 for intermediate teams. This cost includes 14 games, 21 trainings and trials (turf hire) a contribution towards uniform which is provided, first aid, paid umpires along with provision of training gear and GK equipment.
All teams are provided with a playing shirt and skort (skirt with shorts) for the girls and shorts for senior boys. Intermediate boys are expected to provide their own PE uniform shorts. All players are expected to purchase their own playing socks at an additional charge of $15. A cage of balls, bibs and cones is also provided to each team for training.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
