Monash midweek teams are always looking for new players. We offer the opportunity for players who want to participate in a more social competition, but without trainings as with the weekend competitions, perfect for those with busy weekends or who are just time poor. If you feel like a run around a hockey pitch on a Monday night, either because you want to play in a more social environment, or in addition to weekend games, we’d love to have you join us. Please contact Cameron Nichols
In addition, Monash University HC has two Women’s Masters teams, both currently competing in the Over 35s B grade competition on a Wednesday evening. The teams are very social and enjoy great camaraderie within and between the teams. There is always plenty of friendly banter and lots of laughs. The age of players varies from 34 years of age to over 65.
Whilst one team is slightly stronger than the other, players often switch between teams as needed to accommodate availability, family & work commitments, injury and illness. Both teams are fairly competitive and enjoy a hard-fought game. However, as the saying goes, the older we get, the better we were……
Players often catch up outside of game times, pre-match warm-up involves mostly talking and all of us have forgotten what the word training means. There is always dinner at the end of the season and sometimes a counter meal before the game! Our faithful cheer squad consists of one dedicated partner, the odd pooch or two and a few kids.
The aim of the game is to have fun, keep up a bit of fitness and enjoy each others company.
For the 2021 season Monash Hockey Club will likely be represented in the following Master’s competitions:
- Women’s Masters BSE (two teams)
- Men’s Open A
- Men’s Open C
- Women’s Open C
