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.

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.

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.

See you all ready to go next weekend!
As always, Go Tah’s!
In 2019, the Darwin Hockey League (DHL) Under 17 competition will be played in a modified format of 7 a side, to be played on half a field. This format has been agreed upon by the DHL Advisory Panel and the Hockey NT (HNT) Board.
Following the 2018 competition, it has been a priority for all involved to ensure that a clear direction is established and communicated as early as possible. In adopting a modified format, a similar style being played at the Youth Olympic Games, HNT is seeking to provide members with a dynamic form of competition. This will enable members/players to evolve existing & develop new skills and enhance their knowledge of the game while adapting to a new environment.
The learning and development will also extend to coaches. HNT staff are committed to working with coaches to develop their approach to the modified format and to ensure that critical learnings are not restricted to the athlete alone.
As the hockey environment continues to evolve externally, HNT will endeavour to provide services to members which are aligned with the latest national and international trends. Most importantly, HNT’s aim in collaboration with clubs is to provide an enjoyable hockey experience for all.
Welcome to the 2019 season at Waratah Hockey Club. After another fantastic season at Tahs, we are very excited to start 2019 with a bang. We have just had our sign-on day at the Marrara Hockey Centre and it was fantastic to see so many of our members.
On the 30th and 31st March, there will be the Curby’s Pre-season competition and we encourage all our members that play in senior teams to register to play. It is a great couple of days and it also gives our coaches the opportunity to grade players. We are planning some social activities around the pre-season comp so watch this space.
From this week onwards, turf training will be on Thursday nights as follows:
Juniors – 5.30pm
Women – 6.30pm
Men – 7.30pm
Fitness is on Tuesday nights at various locations. Keep an eye out on Facebook to get the details. It starts at 6pm and you will need a towel and water. If you haven’t already, please sign up to our Facebook page. It is a ‘closed group’ and available for members and their families only to join. (All posts are monitored to ensure the group is safe for children and all members of our club).
Hockey NT runs the competition for the Darwin Hockey League and they have advised that competition commences during the first week of April, 2019. We will let you know when the draw is available on the HNT website.
We have a committee this year with lots of new members. Please be patient with us while we find our feet. We are busy setting up, and ironing out problems with, the new registration system.
In the interim, if you have uniform needs, please flag them with Karen Markos ASAP. Her details are provided in the ‘Uniforms’ tab of this website.
Thanks and GO TAHS!
|In 2019, turf training for Waratahs is on a Thursday.
All juniors: 5.30pm – 6.30pm
All senior women: 6.30pm – 7.30pm
All senior men: 7.30pm – 8.30pm
Please note that your coach will let you know if you need to come a bit earlier to have a warm-up run.
Please also look out for new players and introduce them around and make sure they know where they are meant to be. It can be a bit daunting the first few times you come to training and meet a whole lot of new people.
