Coaching News

More great news on the coaching front; we have just appointed our Metro 1 Men’s and Metro 2 Women’s coaches for 2013. Unfortunately, the women’s M1’s have been relegated to M2’s so will be striving to get back up for 2014 – to help this we are pleased to announce Jonno Gardner as the M2’s coach and he will be assisting Daz with the PLW.

We are also pleased to announce a new face to the club to coach the M1 men’s team – Kev Aide. Kev is a current Australian O45 player and has a wealth of coaching and playing experience. Kev (formally of Woodville) is keen to take the M1 men’s team to finals hockey in 2013 and beyond.

We have been doing quite a lot of work in the off season to make 2013 a great season. You will notice some changes around the club in the coming year and there is an expectation that most members will contribute a bit more volunteer hours. We are a volunteer organisation and we all have a responsibility to make the club work. We are in the process of creating roles (mostly small roles) that need to be filled, please give some thought over the holiday period as to what you may like to do for the club in the coming year.

Finally, from myself and the board of Seacliff Hockey Club – have a great Christmas and New Year and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year.

Tim Stephenson represents Australia in Masters Hockey World Cup

We congratulate Tim Stephenson upon his successful return from Canterbury – UK.  In September he represented Australia in the inaugural Masters Hockey World Cup. Winning a silver medal. The Men’s 40’s team played well over the 2 week tournament winning their 3 pool games, against Wales 6-1, South Africa 7-5, and England 5-1 with Tim scoring a goal in each match.

The boys narrowly won the cross-over final against Scotland 2-1, scoring the winning goal from a penalty corner after full time.

Unfortunately they were defeated by England 3-1 in the Final.

In early October Tim had further travels for hockey to Hobart playing in this years National Masters tournament. He was again successful and has earned National selection for the second time in the Australian team that will be competing in the Trans-Tasman Cup in Auckland, New Zealand in 2013.

2012 SHC PLM Squad

This year we have named 18 players in our PLM squad but remain mindful that, of these 18, we will lose Matt McGregor and that both Andrew Schubert and Damian Arney will be impacted by work commitments.

The squad has been selected in such a manner to achieve the required balance across all playing lines as well as providing a healthy blend of youth and experience. The nature of the squad selections is future looking and provides us with the flexibility that we require to meet the demands placed on us by a long season, work commitments, and state hockey commitments.

In addition to the 18 squad members we have identified 4 development players who will have close involvement with the PLM group.

Development players are guys who have potential to play PLM during the season but are still predominantly Metro 1 players. Having development players allows us to introduce targeted individuals to our training culture in a formal manner with the view to grooming them to be able to step into the PLM team without an issue. It is envisaged that they would attend trainings every few weeks and that we would provide feedback with additional feedback to assist with their step into a futurePremier League role.

Please note that, in certain circumstances, players outside of the squad may still be considered for selection or training with the PLM to meet needs as and when they arise.
