The Marist Hockey Club was formed some 20 years ago under the name of St Joseph's Hockey Club. In those early days the club primarily sourced its players from St Joseph's Primary School in Papanui. In 2000 the club was joined by players from St. Patrick's and other Catholic primary schools in Christchurch. Now we stretch far and wide from Star of the Sea in Sumner to Villa Maria College in Upper Riccarton. The Marist Hockey Club has grown with our players.
The Junior Club is made up of Year 1 to 8 boys and girls, fostering the sport of hockey through training and competition. There are 4 grades:
- Kwik Sticks - Year 7 & 8 boys and girls
- Kiwi Sticks - Year 5 & 6 boys and girls
- Mini Sticks - Year 3 & 4 boys and girls
- Fun Sticks - Year 1 & 2 boys and girls
Each grade has Grade Co-ordinators, and they get to know the players moving through the grades helping the club to identify training needs, and help the club coaches with team selection. For further information contact our Junior Club captain -see below.
