The hard-working, superstar coaches of our many junior teams have drummed up some fabulous team reports, reflecting on the 2018 season. Links are below.
From our 2018 Junior Coordinator, Julie Mills:
Forestville has enjoyed one of its most successful junior seasons for many years. We had 12 teams competing across Under 9’s to Under 18’s and in total nearly 140 junior players in these teams (Under 9’s and Under 11’s are smaller teams on quarter and half field pitches).
We had two premiership wins – Under 11 White mixed and Under 18 B boys, and another top of the table performance from Under 9 Blue (no official premiership in this age group). The Under 13B boys were runners up, Under 13A girls and Under 18B girls were third, Under 15 girls missed finals by a single goal and all teams had many good wins over the season.
Four players were selected for the U12 state teams (Charlee W, Ella B, Lucy N and Sam W) with Ella and Lucy also selected for the U13 state team, and Ruby selected as a train on. These players and several more were also selected for the Developing Athlete program with Hockey SA, so the future is looking bright.
A huge thanks to so many willing helpers for the season, the coaches, the managers and the junior committee, who all give up their time to help make our junior program the success it is. As always the best thing is to see our junior players out there every week, developing their hockey, forming and cementing friendships, and above all having fun. We hope to see everyone back to do it again in 2019!
