About

DHC Veteran's Section

Welcome to the Doncaster Hockey Club Master’s and Midweek page

Masters and midweek teams of the Doncaster Hockey Club are a very valuable and respected element, which boasts players, committee members, coaches, and other worthy players, who consider their continued participation an important part of their lives without committing to weekend sport. Life doesn’t end after thirty, nor should any active involvement in hockey.

 

CONTACT

For further information contact the Midweek co-ordinator - Matthew Mitchell midweek@doncasterhockey.club

Whilst previous players of hockey are most welcome, newcomers to the sport are warmly encouraged and every assistance will be given to ensure that the basic skills are mastered. Hockey is a non-contact sport that encourages friendly rivalry whilst achieving a general improvement in fitness levels. All midweek players must be registered and pay registration costs .

Teams

Doncaster fields midweek teams in open age,40's, 45's, 50+ team and womens if sufficient interest. 

Matches

Mens masters matches- Monday evenings at home and away grounds, at either 7.00pm, 8.00pm or 9.00pm,. Each game consists of two twenty five (25) minute halves.

Womens & 50+ teams play on Wednesday nights.

Uniform

The uniform worn consists of a yellow shirt with two bottle green strips on the shoulder, bottle green shorts and gold socks with two bottle green stripes on the turnover.

Training

Whilst there is no specific training regimen, any Master's player wishing to train should refer to the Master's section on Playing/Training for details. Whilst training is of a voluntary nature, it is highly recommended for those who consistently suffer from back, ankle and knee complaints. And even if some Master's have no wish to tackle the "lads", a few laps of the "track" each week will loosen up the joints!

Social

A licensed bar is provided in the clubrooms for those who wish to partake, and on certain occasions a barbeque is held during home matches. Players are reminded that the Doncaster Hockey Club encourages responsible drinking habits, and police breathalyser stations can be regularly found on surrounding major roads.
