Hockey Day Out For Y5 & 6

By Eilis Cassidy | Posted: Thursday June 1, 2023

The Northern Zone Hockey Tournament is coming up on Tuesday 20 June (Week 9) and we are looking for tamariki to play.

This is a fun, social tournament where players with no former hockey experience are especially welcome. The games are just for fun and the scores will not be recorded.

Amesbury can enter up to two teams for this event. Teams are generally Year 5 and 6, and 8 aside. There will be a maximum of 16 teams in the tournament which will take place at the Newtown Hockey Stadium.

Games start at 10:15am and, if everything goes to plan, it will finish by approximately 1:30pm.

If your child is interested, you can register them by completing this short form. Applications will close at 4pm on Wednesday 7th of June. Please register as soon as you can to guarantee a place.

A copy of the rules are attached, please spend time reading them with your child and note that all players are expected to wear a mouth-guard and shin pads. Hockey sticks will be provided by the school.

The postponement date is Thursday 22 June.
