See separate item "Fixtures Week 4". Vygieskraal Hockey Complex and Athletics Stadium will be a hive of activity on Saturday 13 May (08h00-20h00). WP Majorettes and Cheerleaders Union is staging a major event at the stadium. Hockey grass fields, as for athletics, will be used by "drummies" for preparation and some hockey parking for overflow.


Installation of floodlights has been delayed by 24hours.  Completion date is now evening of Sunday 14 May 2017.  Training for Week 5, commencing Monday 15 May, will therefore return to Vygieskraal under new improved lighting!

Training arrangements for this week will continue at away venues - Pinelands HS astro and Hartleyvale B.  Youth Division training continues at Vygieskraal astro.
