James Cook School Hockey Notice

Thu Mar 21 01:12pm

Attention Parents
We are desperately looking for hockey coaches for the upcoming school hockey season.
The season starts about the second week of Term 2 and finishes later in Term 3.
A coach will need the time to have a team practice and game once a week. Depending on the grade depends on the day that you play.
Seniors usually play on a Friday night in Feilding. Years 5 and 6 play on either a Thursday or Friday night and the Juniors play locally on a Saturday morning.
Please contact either Sue or Tracy, via the school office if you can help us.
Many thanks
