Long Weekend Carnival – Expressions of Interest

Emu Plains Hockey Club are attempting to get the October Long Weekend Carnival back off the ground this year.

We are looking for expressions of interest from teams who may participate. This is not a commitment to enter a team, merely an indication that you would be interested in entering a team.

The format would be similar to previous carnivals except we would be looking at a Hockey 9’s format to alleviate the need to get a full team of 11. The competition would be mixed with a minimum of 3 girls/ladies required to be on the field at a time. A fully padded up goalkeeper is also a requirement.

As with previous years, male players will not be allowed to hit the ball to reduce the danger element. We have confirmed with Hockey NSW that players would not have to be registered to play as they can be covered under the HNSW trial process. Their details would need to be provided to keep a record in the event of an insurance claim.

We would likely need a minimum of 10 teams for the carnival to be viable. If you are interested in submitting a team please let us know. You can contact us via our website, our Facebook page or by email.
