Hockey Club

Willoughby Girls High School P&C Hockey plays both indoor and outdoor hockey.  Teams are entered in outdoor competitions for Terms 2 & 3 and indoor competitions in Terms 1 & 4.  Girls can play in either or both.  The aim of the club is to encourage girls to play team sport for fun and exercise.  We welcome new and experienced players alike with older players mentoring younger ones.  Many of our players are often playing for the first time so teams are mixed ability and all years play together in the same team enabling them to build relationships across years.  We also socialise together with end of season get togethers.  Year 7 girls can commence with indoor hockey in Term 1 or outdoor in Term 2.

WGHS plays in the Sydney Indoor Hockey Association's Northern Schools competition.  Two seperate competitions are played in the first and fourth terms of each year. Games are held on Wednesday afternoons/evenings in Term 4 and Fridays in Term 1. Games are played at Mosman, Ryde or Edgecliff and car-pooling is encourages to facilitate transport.

Training: Weekly training is held. (timing is coach dependant)

Approximate Cost

Field hockey: Approx $235.00 per player which covers both terms - includes ground hire, registration, insurance, club equipment and coaching.

Indoor hockey: Approx $120.00 per player per term - includes court hire, registration, insurance, club equipment and coaching

We play in the school sports uniform and have a 15% discount with a local supplier for hockey equipment such as sticks, mouthguards and shin pads.

Communication for both indoor and field hockey is via email and/or our website https://www.revolutionise.come.au/wghshockeyclub/home

Training, match details and other important information will be sent to your email, so these need to be checked regularly.  We welcome and encourage parental support.
