** President’s Message 2020 **
Juniors – Season 2020
The junior playing fixture starts on the weekend of May 2020. This is after Term 1 school holidays, Easter and ANZAC Day. First games are Friday 1st May for Under 14’s and Under 16’s, with the Under 10’s and Under 12’s playing there first games on Saturday 2nd May.
Junior skills training will start in the week commencing Monday 24 February 2020. Note, we are going to have internal and external practice matches to break up the training routine before the season starts.
Bring your friends down and we will find a spot for them as well.
We avoid sending you regular emails as a communication mechanism and use Team App for club and team messages, fixture and selection information.
Please make sure that you have “checked” the correct age group registration and then requested access to the right age groups in Team App for your kids. Likewise, leave any age group that you are no longer associated with to minimise the number of Team App notifications you receive.
Please feel free to email myself, your Age level co-ordinator or your team manager if ever you have a question.
For access, please download via your phone (App Store, Google Play) or https://www.TeamApp.com. Once downloaded, search for Hawthorn Hockey Club and request access.

All players are required to be registered with both Hockey Victoria (HV) and Hawthorn. Due to insurance policies with Hockey Victoria, it is ideal if players have registered with HV before commencing training. Registration can be done online here.
Hawthorn Hockey Club registrations are now available – please register as soon as possible, to allow the committee to enter the right number of teams into HV competitions.
For further details regarding registration, see the Registration page.
Our club, like all clubs, relies on many volunteers to operate. This includes the President – Junior Division, Age level co-ordinators, Team managers, Coaches, Hookin2 Hockey co-ordinators, Indoor co-ordinators etc, right down to people to volunteer to run the BBQ when it is Hawthorn’s turn.
We NEED help to run your child’s team efficiently, so contact myself or your age coordinator to find out how you can help. It does not take much effort and is a great way to support your kids.
If you have any questions regarding the above or any other aspect of the season that is not answered on our website, please speak to a committee member at training or myself.
Our contact emails are all listed on the website under at https://hawthornhockeyclub.asn.au/juniors/contacts-for-junior-teams/.
All the best for the season.
