Here are a few facts about Junior 6-Aside Hockey:

  • Played on Mondays between 4pm and 6.30pm approx.
  • Played across a ¼ turf
  • Strictly NO boys may play in girls’ teams; however, if due to lack of numbers and as a last resort, girls may play in boys’ teams
  • Year 3/4 players are permitted to play in the 5/6 Grades only if required to make up numbers. No Year 5/6 players are permitted to play in a Year 3/4 team.
  • Player Fee: will be advised when numbers are finalised (2014 fee was $100).
  • Umpires are supplied
  • (Note that an additional fee may apply if a team requires a coach.)
