Melville Mens Masters
Updated March 2021
Welcome to season 2021. Hope this finds you keen for more Masters hockey this year – a year in which we’re expecting significantly more O40 & O50 Division 1 Saturday turf games, based on recent increases in turf availability.
As in past years, Mens’ Masters training is scheduled for 6:30 – 7:30PM, Thursday nights at Morris Buzzacott Reserve, on the grass area south of the turf, followed by a chance to socialise thereafter. For 2021, training will kick off on Thursday, March 4. Please bring two shirts (one white, one coloured) for participation in practice games (the main training activity most nights). There will also be a training session on the AstroTurf that will kick off on Monday, March 8 between 7:30 – 8:30PM where the turf is shared with the lower grade Senior men. April 5 onwards the sessions would be 7:00 – 8:00PM.
We also plan to run pre-season scratch matches tentatively starting at 2:30PM Sunday afternoon, March 28, at Morris Buzzacott Reserve. Please keep an eye out for more details (via the MCHC website, email or Facebook). Please make the effort to come down for a run, one way or another, prior to the start of the season, which will be March 29/31, for Masters Midweek and April 10, for Masters Weekend.
Finally – and most importantly – REGISTRATION, which is now open through the club web site. It’s critical that you register ASAP to play this year, so we can assemble competitive teams for all the grades we’re planning to nominate to play as below:
|O40 MW||O50 Div 1||O60 Div 1|
|O40 Div 1||O50 Div 3||O60 Div 2A|
|O40 Div 3||O60 Div 2B|
Nothing more for now – we hope to see you all at the club as the new season rolls around. In the meantime, please keep an eye out for further Masters updates, through email, the MCHC website, Facebook or the Hockey WA Masters website.
