Waikato University Hockey Club AGM for the 2014 season


The AGM for 2014 will be held Wednesday 29 January in the ANZ Building Level 2, 130 Grantham Street at 7pm. It is important for as many people to come along as possible and get involved with how the club is run (come along even if you don't want to join the committee!). The main feature of the evening will be the election of the executive positions - if you would like to nominate someone for a position or stand for one yourself, please get in touch. The major roles are:

  • President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Equipment Officer
  • Mens Club Captain
  • Womens Club Captain

There is also plenty of room for people who want to be involved and help out when they can, without being in an executive position. We're especially keen to have extra people onboard who want to help out with club social events throughout the season. Many hands make light work, and the more people involved then the easier it is for everyone and the smoother the club runs!

Great Finish to Round 2


The second round of the season finished on the weekend, with some great results for our teams. Congratulations to our CBD Premier Men who won their final 3-1 against Fraser Tech and our Storage King Premier Women who beat Te Awamutu 3-1 in their final. Good to see some fantastic hockey played against some quality opposition.

Our reserve womens teams took the top two spots in their grade, with PR Carter Contracting Reserve Women coming out on top after a thrilling win in the last game of the round-robin to put them ahead of Sachin Reserve Women who finished in second place.

Salon ID Third Division Women narrowly missed out on promotion to the reserve grade but secured a well earned second place in their competition, with sights set high for the final round.

Well done everybody!
