Last year we trialled an approach to encourage people to give hockey a try (Dads & Lads) – either to get a basic understanding or to return to the sport again. It was very successful so we have expanded the idea and added Mums & Chums (basically over 16).
As you know we recently provided free hockey sessions to the whole club and we are now also making this initiative free. The time is also being made 7:30pm in Sion Hill using the full pitch for both. You also do not have to come each week but would ask that you register: Covid requirement.
Fun, Friendly and Safe. 4 weeks , Fridays 7:30 in Sion Hill. Bring a stick Shinpads and GumShields. We can’t share equipment but will have a couple of cleaned down sticks.
This season we would especially like to grow our Ladies section and give Mums and Past Players the opportunity to play Masters/Vets or League. If you are a Mum, Past Player or just a Chum why not give Hockey a go next Friday 7th August.
Over the last number of years a number of Dad’s of players in the Club have taken up Hockey and now play regularly for Avoca Masters/Vets on a Wednesday night or on a Saturday for Avoca Men’s 4s or both. We have also seen the return of past Men’s players to the Club after a decade or two decades absence and they are also playing each week, often at Men’s 3s and sometimes Men’s 2s. Last year we ran four Dads& Lads sessions and that allowed the formation of Mens 4s last year and we plan to add a Mens 5s this season. If you are a Dad, a Past Player or just a Lad why not give Hockey a go next Friday 7th August.
Covid 19 questionnaire required as part of application.
