Sunday 25th March – Normal Training

In2hockey Tournament – I will be sending out an email of the girls I have chosen to take part in the In2hockey under 10’s tournament shortly.  This is on Sunday 25th March in the afternoon at Haslemere hockey club.

Easter Sunday  – There will be no training session on Sunday 1st April as we will all be busy searching for the chocolate eggs the Easter bunny has left!

Sunday April 15th Havant Hockey Tournament – We will be hosting our tournament on this date.  Please can I ask all parents to get baking so that we have a cake sale.  I would love some volunteers to help out with jobs on that day so please let me know if you can help.

Sunday 22nd April – Chichester Tournament

Sunday 29th April End of season party – This will be our last training session of the season Boooooooooooooo!!!! Let’s make it a fun session,  Parents V Kids games will be included (wear your trainers).  After the session I will be organising a picnic for the kids followed by a prize giving so it is likely the session will be longer than normal.

A date for the start of the new season will be out in August.

My son Charlie will be moving up into the under 12 section in September and so therefore I can no longer manager the mini section (bad times, I love it!!) Please contact me via email or text if this is something you would be willing to take on. 

Regards Sally Prior X






Petersfield Tournament Cancelled

Just to keep you all updated Petersfield have decided to cancel this Sunday’s tournament due to the recent bad weather.  Currently their pitch is covered in 3 inches of snow and may not clear by Sunday.

We have also decided not to run a training session at Havant this Sunday in case of continued bad weather.  Enjoy the lay in guys ……

See you all on 11th March.

Under 10’s – In2Hockey Competition

Havant Hockey Club have entered in to this years In2Hockey competition. However, it was decided to only enter a girls under 10 team.  It is on Sunday 25th March at Haslemere Hockey Club and starts at 12.30pm.  It is a knock out competition with teams involved from all over Hampshire.  It was really good fun last year with the boys under 10’s team and a great experience for them.

We need to have 7 players 1 of which needs to be a fully kitted goal keeper.

Could you please let me know (by email or text) if your daughter would be available for this and if they would be interested in being the goal keeper.

Once a team is chosen I will make sure they get some training time together during our Sunday sessions over the next few weeks.

Hamble Tournament – write up

Under 8’s

The under 8s had one of their tougher series of matches of the season but were a real credit to hockey and Havant. All players should be congratulated for playing some nice passing hockey at times and really improving across their five games. The sportsmanship and team spirit was excellent with easily the best 3 cheers of all the teams coming from Havant! Special mention to Beatrice and Rebecca in their first ever festival for both really growing in confidence on the pitch. Well done to all for braving the matches against significantly bigger and older teams, especially the excellent battling and running from Finn, Kate and Noah. Sia as ever defended brilliantly and Theo passed strongly in midfield. Players player of the tournament was Toby for his excellent tackling. My player of the tournament was Georgie who got better every game and ran with the ball brilliantly – so much progress from her first festival! Eat your greens over half term, fingers crossed we all grow a foot – normal training next Sunday.

I’d like to enter two teams for the next festival on 4th March. Please text Tom on 07867419027 if you can’t play. If I hear nothing I’ll presume you’re playing. We need everyone available!!!   Regards Tom

Under 10’s

Wow what a chilly tournament it was on Sunday!!! We had one team for the under 10’s and what a battle we gave, we won 1 game, drew 3 and lost 1.  All of the team gave 100%, we gained in confidence in each game learning from our mistakes – Leaving the goal open for the opposition to score an bunching. We had a little chat and a few giggles about this !

Charlie, George and Holly played well up front, passing well and scoring some lovely goals, Esme made some lovely attempts at scoring, with her strong will she got one in!!  Wilf, Thomas, Jennifer and Martha battled hard in defense.  Evie, Catalina and Ella played brilliantly midfield tackling well and making some great passes.

Well done to all !

I would like to enter two teams for the next festival on 4th March in Petersfield Please text me on 07789798977 if your child can or cannot play.

Regards Sally X
