State U12 School's Championships (18th to 21st June)
Over the past 4 days, six of our young players represented Wide Bay at the U12's State Schoolboys/girls Championships. What great results from these four days. Wide Bay boys came first, being undefeated during the carnival. Our girls team had only one narrow loss and finished 2nd, only one point behind Met West. To Grace, Jess, Matt, Clifford, Connor and Brayden, we all say well done. From all reports you have done Wide Bay and Gympie Hockey proud.
The great news gets better - Matthew Browne and Clifford Gallaher have been named in the Qld U12 Schoolboys team to travel to Perth in early August to compete at the National titles. Well done boys from all the Gympie Hockey community.
New FIH Rules
The majority of the new rules adapted by Hockey Australia are now in place. The only rule not being played at Gympie, in any grade competition, is the stick over the shoulder rule.
Gympie Hockey Representative Teams
This Sunday (28th June) will see our U13 Boys and Girls commence their State Championships. The boys will be in Maryborough and the girls at Redlands. We wish both teams all the best at their respective carnivals. Results will be on Facebook as they become available from the teams.
If any players are interested in representing Gympie at the U15 State Championships in September, please see Ben, as we are looking to start training for these teams after the July school holidays. U15 Girls have Neil McKean as coach and Tony Mills as Manager, but we are looking for volunteers for coach and manager for the U15 Boys. See Ben if you are interested. U15 Boys will travel to Warwick and U15 Girls are on the Sunshine Coast.
If you have any queries, please see someone at the control room or Ben.
