Survey to inform COVID19 Decisions for Wellington Hockey

Wellington Hockey have asked that clubs/school members complete a survey in relation to the type of competition and programmes that should be offered for the remainder of 2020. It is vital to have stakeholders’ views while the lockdown is still in place as this will allow planning to start and ensure hockey can hit the ground running when permitted to start playing again.

Please fill out the survey by this weekend Sunday 3 May it should take no more than 3-5 minutes to complete and your responses will be kept completely confidential.

HCJH COVID-19 Response

Hockey NZ have sent out a notification halting all hockey activity from 19 March to 2 May 2020. In line with this Wellington Hockey Association CEO Lisa Jones has advised that there will be no training, programmes, trials or any other hockey related activity until 2 May 2020 or unless advised further.

At this stage it appears that the Wellington Hockey Association will still run a hockey season, but it may be shorter with a late start. Please continue to register your children using the registration form

We are expecting a further update from Wellington Hockey CEO on 20 March 2020

11 May Results

Today was a great day of Hockey!

The Y3/4 Tuis edged out Toroa at Newlands today winning the game with 5 goals to 4. Everyone had lots of fun and played really well!

The Y5/6 game score did not reflect all of the great hockey that was played and it was the first game of the season for the Phoenix and they played really well. The Dragons took out the top spot with 9 goals to 1. Lots of beautiful hockey was played with excellent use of the width of the field and excellent passing. Well done to everyone!

Our P1 Y7/8 Keas had a great game and played beautifully. Unfortunately they lost to Northern United 1-2, but it was a massive improvement on last week’s game.

The P2 Boys teams the Dolphins and the Orcas faced off against each other. The game was evenly matched, but the Orcas came out on top with 3 goals to 1.

All in all a great weekend of Hockey! There is lots to learn from and everyone is looking forward to doing it all again next week!!!
