THE Gippsland Bulls Southern Stars are holding a local hockey competition throughout term four at the Wonthaggi Secondary College Dudley Campus.
The Gippsland Bulls Southern Stars are a small group of hockey players who live in South Gippsland and the Bass Coast.
The group is training squad for the Gippsland Bulls Hockey Club, which provides Gippsland people with the opportunity of playing in the Melbourne metropolitan competition under a regional banner.
The Gippsland Bulls have senior women’s and men’s teams, masters over 35s and over 45s, and junior teams in the under 14s, under 16s and under 18s metropolitan competitions.
Junior players from across Gippsland try out for the Bulls to further their hockey, gaining skills and experience that can lead into the annual Junior Country and State hockey competitions, run by Hockey Victoria.
The Gippsland Bulls are based at the synthetic hockey facility in Drouin, with members travelling from across Gippsland.
Gippsland Bulls Hockey Club is committed to developing junior hockey in Gippsland.
As there is no hockey association in South Gippsland/Bass Coast, the club is providing a weeknight competition in Wonthaggi, so new players can give hockey a try.
The synthetic field at Wonthaggi Secondary College provides a larger area than the Old Youth Hall in Meeniyan, where the club has been playing during 2015 and 2016, and a field surface similar to the facility in Drouin.
The competition will be held at the Wonthaggi Secondary College Dudley Campus on Fridays from 5.30pm to 6.30pm during the school term.
The GBHC Southern Star players are enthusiastic, team-focused and understand that sport is about working together and having fun, which means that new players are welcomed enthusiastically.
