Melville Mens Masters
Updated March 2019
Welcome to season 2019. Hope this finds you keen for more Masters hockey this year, in which Hockey WA is set to introduce exciting changes to some of our grades, as follows:
- O40 1 and O50 1 home games to be played Saturday afternoons on turf, when a home turf’s available
- ~75% of O40 midweek games to be moved from Monday to Wednesday nights
As in past years, Mens’ Masters training is scheduled for 6:30, Thursday nights at Morris Buzzacott, on the grass area south of the turf, followed by a chance to socialise at the club, from ~7:30 onwards. For 2019, training will kick off Thursday, March 14. Please bring two shirts (one white, one coloured) for participation in practice games (the main training activity most nights).
We’ll also be running pre-season scratch matches at the club, starting 2 p.m. Saturday, March 23. Please make the effort to have a run, one way or another, prior to the start of the season, which will be April 6 for Saturday Masters games.
Finally – and most importantly – REGISTRATION through the club web site (see above link). It’s critical that you register ASAP to play this year, so we can sort out competitive team lists for all our teams (O40 mid week, O40 div 1 & 3, O50 div 1, 2 & 3 and O60, as per last year) in time for the start of the season.
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 club website, Facebook or the Hockey WA Masters web site.
