Welcome to Boland High Schools' Hockey 2014!!!

Wow... it’s been a busy few weeks. In between the extended holidays, Election Day and an already busy school schedule, some of the key achievements have been

  • Concluding the trials and subsequent selection of 25 teams
  • Finalising the Practice Schedule
  • Deciding on a new kit design
  • Three Information Evenings and Kit Sessions
  • Placing the kit order of more than 3,400 items
  • Securing flights for 120+ players, coaches & managers
  • Booking bus travel for 100 players, coaches & managers
  • Identifying 15 umpires … and still looking
  • Assigning 49 coaches and managers
  • Generating 60+ Sponsorship Letters ... and continuing

And yes, as usual, some hurdles had to be overcome - sudden non-availability of Astro times and numerous withdrawals (coaches, managers, players) required some adjustments and probably also resulted in various communication challenges across some of the regions. Hopefully this will be rectified now.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Elsabe, Quentin and all the Convenors and Selectors for the massive effort - well done! Leanne, thank you for your efforts (and lots of driving) in finalising the kit order - in record time! And a further word of appreciation must go to the parents who really contributed in a positive way when we needed it - thank you.

Once again, it is important that you please join the Boland High Schools’ Hockey Facebook Group - for instant, ad hoc and interactive communication!

With the organisational aspects now focusing on concluding the tournament arrangements and finalising the invoices, it is time ... to focus on hockey. I firmly believe that Boland High Schools’ Hockey has improved significantly in the last few years. With more Astros currently being ‘built’ in the Boland region, we have all the opportunity to continue this trend. It is now up to the players to make best use of the Practice Times … get fit and enjoy!

"It's great to win, but it's also great fun just to be in the thick of any truly well and hard fought contest against opponents you respect, whatever the outcome."
- Jack Nicklaus (Golfer)
