Welcome to 2014 and the Masters Competition – a place where old dogs can and do learn new tricks! There’s been growing interest in the Masters Competitions and Hockey Victoria is recognising that there is a great need to cater for men and women who want enjoy hockey beyond weekend competition. I‘d like to extend a warm welcome to all new Masters players who will put on the red, white and blue for the first time – welcome! The Men Masters have teams entered in 035 A Grade and B Grade, 045 B Grade, O50A Grade and 050 B Grade and the Women Masters have teams in 035 A Grade and 035 B Grade. The pre-season training sessions have just started on Mondays and Wednesdays. If you are now of Masters age (35 and above) then please consider playing on a Monday or Wednesday night. We are looking particularly for men and women to join the over 50s A and B Grade sides. Lastly, nominations will open in March for both men and women for Victorian Representative Masters sides which is earlier than usual. See the Hockey Victoria website for details and to register for the selection trials. In 2014, the Women’s Masters National Championship will be held from July 10 –19 in Darwin.

To all the members who have shown support on my appointment to Chairman of the Club I thank you and hope that I can do you proud. Like the start of any season it has been a whirlwind of activity by all concerned and progress is being made as we near the season opening. The junior section is hosting the “Come n Try” sessions on Wednesday nights with over 100 kids joining in the fun and hopefully many will choose to stay and play hockey as their chosen sport. Our junior U8’s and U10’s program kicks off after the Come n Try Wednesday 26th March. David Braiden is looking for more junior coaches to support the programs. David can be contacted on email@example.com BOARD UPDATE On March 4th we had our first Board meeting for the year and I stressed to our Board that I wished to create a sense of fairness and transparency around the Club so I would like your feedback on how that progresses and develops over the next 12 months.
