YATE Hockey Club is preparing for its annual season opener, with the HockeyFest event to be held at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex (YOSC) on Saturday, September 5.
The club runs adult and youth teams, with more than 200 playing members at a variety of levels of the game.
The men’s teams train on Wednesday evenings at YOSC, with the first team playing in the Conference North Division.
Yate Ladies train on Tuesdays at the complex, with the first team in West Premier League 1.
Sunday mornings at YOSC are given over to junior training of under-10s, under-12s, under-14s and under-16s.
The HockeyFest event allows the club to invite existing members and potential new players to enjoy a day of fun and competition. The day starts with breakfast in the clubhouse from 9.30am and an opportunity to cheer on the Ladies 1st X1 in a match against Gwent.
A junior camp open to those aged from five to 15 gives members the chance to sign up for the forthcoming season and to be involved with new members in an open training session given by adult players.
A sixes tournament in the afternoon is open to players aged 14 and over, with the £5 entry fee donated to the club president’s chosen charity.
Food will be available all day, a bar opens at noon and there will be inflatables for everyone to enjoy. A social event from 6pm-8pm will bring the event to a close.
