Hockey is played during Terms 2 and 3 with the college catering for both competitive and social teams. Trials are generally held during Term 1 at the New Plymouth Turf. Further information regarding these can be found in the Daily Notices.
There are a number of different leagues that teams participate in. Our 1st X1 team competes in the girls’ secondary school league on a Thursday evening. All teams practice on a Wednesday after school due to the cost and availability of the New Plymouth Turf.
Our 1st X1 team is highly competitive and last year qualified for the National Premier Secondary School Tournament held during Winter Tournament Week.
Students are issued a playing uniform. Most teams will get a dress, some will get shorts and a top, with the 1st X1 also receiving a tracksuit. Uniforms are expected to be returned at the end of the season after sports photos. Students are responsible for providing their own mouth guards, shoes and shin protection. A gear bag with team lists, bibs, balls and first aid kit are also supplied for the season.
The cost for participating is dependent upon what team your daughter is in and what league the team is entered into. It ranges from approximately $80.00 to $300.00.
