Welcome to the 2019 Marist Hockey season. Pre- season training and trials are about to really kick in so I thought a bit of information would be useful in the lead up to this. Information of training and trials will be on the Facebook page and website and will be updated regularly. You need to be keeping an eye on the Facebook page (Marist Hockey Club).
Teams this year will consist of:
Prem: Selected by open trial and open to any age group year 11 and above. Last year’s Div 1 players will be needed for these trials and will help determine whom to put in the wider CPL squad of up to 20 though only 14 protected players will be named in the team.
Div 1: Selected by open trial and open to any age group year 11 and above. 2018 div 2 players are welcome to attend these trials and if you are intending to trial for Div 1 attending the Div 1 /CPL training sessions is an exceptionally good idea.
Div 2: Selected by open trial and open to any age group year 11 and above. All of last year’s div 3 players are welcome to trial for this team and are strongly encouraged to attend the training sessions prior to the trial as this will form part of the selection process, particularly if you are not familiar to our selectors.
Platinum: Open to players aged under 18 on 1st of January 2018. All year 9 and 10 players will be allocated to teams in this grade. This is a new Canterbury Hockey Rule and Marist Hockey will be adhering to this.
Helping out the club:
CPL and DIV 1 Players are expected to take on a role in coaching or umpiring within the club. We will be having a meeting around these expectations and your preferences in March but the earlier you let us know the more likely we can give you what you prefer.
DIV 2 Players are expected to help with the Funsticks year 1 and 2 programme on Saturday morning, or assisting with coaching.
DIV 3 and Platinum players are expected to take part in the Year 5 Year 6 kiwisticks umpiring programme. This will consist of a training course and then being on a roster to umpire these teams. This will be a commitment of 2 hours for 5 Saturdays during the season. The year 9 umpires will have a CPL or Div 1 player mentoring them during their umpire sessions.
Matches this year will be played on the following days:
Saturday: Prem, Div 1 and Platinum Men.
Sunday: Div 2 and Platinum Women
This year anyone who plays for their school will only be allowed to play one club match on the weekend. This is a new Canterbury Hockey rule for 2019.Please arrive 15 minutes before any session!

Did you know that “boil and bite” type mouthguards bought over the counter offer only slightly more protection than NO mouthguard at all?
Custom made mouthguards provide superior protection against not only dental injuries but also concussions.
Not only do they fit well and not fall out, but players can breathe and speak easily when they wear them. You won’t see players chewing on them and fiddling with them out of their mouths!!
Duxton Dental are offering superb deals for custom made mouthguards to Marist hockey players.
These come in a variety of colours – green and black multicoloured/red and black multicoloured and plain colours clear, green, red, blue.
All custom-made mouthguards are $75.
