Annual Youth Hockey Festival a Great Success

A hugely successful Annual Youth Hockey Festival was held at Vygieskraal Hockey Complex on Sat 17 Sept 2011 from 08h30-14h00.

 

For the first time this event attempted to the cater for the entire range of primary school age groups  with 20 x u10 teams, 8 x u13 squads (boys and girls) and activities on the Mini turf for u7 boys and girls.  Close to 500 (participants and support staff) contributed to its success.  It was particularly heartening to have many “young Turks” out in force as coaches, umpires and in many other capacities

A big thank you to all for contributing to this highly successful event.    All  things considered, it was one of the best events of its kind hosted at Vygieskraal Hockey Complex since it became CHC headquarters in July 2000.  Thankfully even the weather played along with the cold front holding off for an extra 12 hours!

The Annual Youth Awards which followed soon after attracted a huge turnout of players/parents/guardians, bringing down the curtain on another action- packed season of  activity for an ever growing Central Youth Division.
