Hockey

Congratulations to everyone who trialled and made one of the selected three teams. The people that did not make one of the “top” teams have been placed in another team with people they know and want to play with. They also got to choose the division/competition level they wish to play in.
Training will begin week 1 term 3, same with their first games.
We are still waiting for a draw to come out to see what days your child will play but it will be similar to last year. They will either play on Thursday or Friday afternoons.
Miss Turner will work out the cost of fees over the holidays and will let you know the first week back next term.
Coaches: We are seeking coaches for 4 teams. They will need to have some hockey knowledge to help run training and assist with subbing at the game. If you are interested, can you please email Jess Turner (jturner@kamoint.school.nz).
