Hockey fixtures kick off next month

HOME to four of Rockhampton's Olympians, Kalka Shades is living proof that sporting dreams can come true.

Rockhampton Hockey Association Inc prides itself on strong sportsmanship values, state-of-the-art facility and equipment and a warm welcoming environment from which to learn and grow.

President Barbara Knowles said the club had about 700 players aging from 4 years of age to over 60 years.

"We encourage new members to visit the grounds at Kalka Shades, Birdwood Park, and experience the sport for themselves,” Barbara said.

Our association has produced four Olympians including Kym Ireland, Jamie Dwyer, Mark Knowles and Matt Gohdes. Rockhampton Hockey Association Inc provides good coaching and competitive fixtures with the opportunity for players to represent the region, state, nation and even compete internationally. Hockey is a great sport for all ages and encourages coordination, team participation and is ideal for playing outdoors, particularly in the cooler months.”

She said fixtures commenced on March 18 through to mid-September with juniors up to 16 years of age playing on Saturday mornings and seniors ranging from Saturday afternoon and evening plus evenings during the week.
