Hello all, Happy New Year!
The new look Indoor Program is fast approaching. As the junior support person for Indoor this year I am writing this in the hope that as clubs we are able to disseminate this information to attract as many of our members and in particular junior members as possible.
The Program this year :
Saturday 25th January a Free Family-Focused, Come-and-Try Hockey Community Day. A wonderful opportunity for clubs and as a sport to positively promote ourselves to the broader Darwin community.
The expected run sheet for the day is:
10am to 10.45am U8’s
10.45am- 12.30pm Family-Focused modified Indoor Hockey
12.30pm- 3pm Seniors and more experienced focused Indoor Hockey session.
Please if this day could be promoted as widely as possible to encourage not just our hockey community to attend but to others that may wish to be a part of a great community day and help fundraise for the U15 NT Girls Team it would be greatly appreciated.

Please note the Hockey NT/Hockey Australia registration must be completed and paid for before the start of the competition for insurance purposes.
This registration covers players for the entire year.
Expected NT Hockey/Hockey Australia Registration Fees are:
- $10 for U8
- $35 for u18
- $80 for Seniors
The decision to give players the option to nominate as an individual is to encourage those players to play without having to organise themselves a team. When assigning junior players to teams I will be keeping in mind families/friendships and club alignments.
This year there is an opportunity for Juniors and Seniors to take on the role of Coaching a side without the burden of organising the team members or handling the finances. To express interest in coaching or umpiring during the indoor season please complete the expression of interest form attached.
