Pre-season trial dates and training sessions are listed below for all players intending to play in the senior turf competition however please note these details are subject to change and we will let you know asap if this happens.

SWU conducts these trials each year to select our best teams for the different levels within the turf competition. As such there are no guarantees for individuals that they will be selected in the same grade as in previous years. We believe this to be fair for both existing and new members. As per previous years there will be external selectors helping coaches select the teams for 2018.

2018 Coaching Announcement

SWU are very excited to announce the appointment of Phil Jackwitz as not only our 2018 Division 2 Women’s coach but also as SWU Coach/Player Development Specialist. This is a very hands on role, where Phil will be running coaching clinics and junior player clinics (both grass and turf), exclusively for SWU members throughout the year with a major focus on junior athlete and coach development. He will also be rotating amongst our junior and senior turf and grass trainings to help our coaches so please make Phil feel welcome when you see him.  

 

Like so many others in our hockey community, Phil Jackwitz is a hockey tragic having played, umpired, and coached our great game.  It was in 2012 though that Phil decided to shift his Hockey passion from being a hobby to being a profession, and he hasn’t looked back.  Phil has since enjoyed stints at both the BHA; 2012 – 2015 and at Hockey NSW; 2015 - 2017.  Phil boasts an Advanced Level Coaching Accreditation and a modest list of coaching successes at both the local and state level.  In 2018, Phil joins the coaching ranks of South West United Hockey Club; dedicated to helping the club reach its goals.  

 

Division 3 will be coached by Brad Rogers.

Division 4 will be coached by Amy Gilmore

Division 5 will be coached by Sandy Bush

 

We are also looking to field a Division 6 women’s team this season.  If you would be interested in playing in this team, please let us know as soon as possible.

 

We will also be fielding as many Junior Turf and Grass teams as possible, again, depending on numbers.  We have many very excited coaches (Brad Rogers, Angela Lindop, Ros Kirwin, Liam Crowhurst, Riaan Retief, Georgia Challinor, Jaime Ladbrook, Gillian Henschke) ready to start the season on the 21st January.  More updates will follow in early January.

 

In the meantime, we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a fun filled 2018.

 

From the hardworking committee at South West United Hockey Club.
