Women's Hockey

Women's Hockey

The V.U.C. Women's Hockey Club last year entered two tennis in the Wellington competitions—one in the A grade and one in the C grade—but it cannot be truthfully stated that they distinguished themselves.

The A team lacked combination, Especially the forwards, who were also too slow in seizing opportunities of shooting, We had some very good players among the backs and halfbacks, but the team as a whole showed great need for improvement and enthusiasm.

The members of the Junior team were for the most part new players, who improved greatly during the season. Towards the end the team was combining well and Showing much more enthusiasm than the Senior team.

Poor Traing Facilities.

The Club is definitely handicapped by its small membership and by its difficulty in practising. A training night was held once a week during the second term. This was quite well attended but unfortunately was almost always held inside, and though we were able to practise stick-work we had no practice in combination.

There is a possibility this year of having a portion of Kelburn Park flood-lift for practising purposes. If we can use this ground there should be a definite improvement both in practices and on the field.

With plenty of practice and enthusiasm the Women's Hockey Club can achieve anything Let's hope that this year it will do something Worth recording.
