Hockey Victoria have developed two brand new versions of hockey – J-Ball and Hockey Sixers – which are played on small fields (43m x 22m), with modified rules to suit anyone, whether a seasoned player or a beginner.
COME N TRY
There is a Come n Try session free to anyone, Saturday 4th February 11am – 1pm at FHC
HV have teamed up with Footscray Hockey Club to deliver the program at our venue. The first ever season of J-Ball will commence Monday 20th February and Hockey Sixers will commence Friday 24th February. At this stage, the new formats are only offered to senior players. The matches will start at 7pm in the evening with the season running over six weeks only and finishing in late March/early April.
It’s a fast, fun, free-flowing version of hockey played on a smaller field, with 6 players on each team. Best of all, the ball is always on the ground and in play! With the Winter Season just around the corner, Hockey 6’s may be perfect for your pre-season preparations. Game on – Who’s your Six? For a team of 6, fees are around $15 per game ($90 per player for the season) which includes umpires arranged by HV. Having a bench will be handy and will reduce the fee cost.
If you want to give hockey a go in a friendly, safe, and social environment, then J-Ball is for you. Easy rules, modified equipment and smaller field of play make J-Ball the perfect game for anyone new to the game. In particular we would encourage parents of our junior players and parents /partnersof our members who have never played hockey to give J-Ball a go. All equipment provided by Hockey Victoria. All you need is a team of 6, a pair of runners and comfortable clothes. For a team of 6, fees are around $12 per game ($72 per player for the season) which includes umpires arranged by HV. Having a bench will be handy and will reduce the fee cost.
