Northerns Masters Colts Men's 35+ and 40+ Selection

2018 was a great and successful year for the Northerns Masters Colts Men's side, with the team winning the Inter Provincial Tournament in Durban!  This year the tournament will be held in Johannesburg from the 7th to 11th of August 2019.  It is our intention to defend our title at this year's IPT.  With the level of Masters Hockey rapidly increasing year on year, we need to ensure that we put together a team that can successfully compete at the highest level and defend the title.

In addition to the above, in order to be eligible to qualify for trials for the upcoming 2020 Masters Hockey World Cup, it is compulsory for a player to play in the South African Masters Hockey Interprovincial Tournament.  With the success of the 2018 South African Masters Hockey World Cup teams and a great IPT in KZN, masters hockey is getting greater and stronger.  Therefore a decision has been made to once again conduct trials for the teams in medal sections for this year's IPT.  The trials will take place over one day and are scheduled to take place on Saturday the 23rd of February 2019, at Southdowns College, from 14:30 to 17:00.  There will be a R50 registration fee, payable on the day.

Age eligibility: A masters hockey player must be over the designated age limit on the 31st December of the year of the relevant competition, meaning:

  • 35+ players need to turn 34 by 31 December 2019, and
  • 40+ players need to turn 39 by 31 December 2019

We invite all players within these age categories who would like to attend the trials to please register below.  Players who attend the trials will take preference over players that do not attend.  Should you not be able to attend the trial date and want to be considered for the team you may apply for dispensation in the form of a letter or email, stating the reasons and motivating factors for consideration.  Team selection will conducted by a panel of selectors in conjunction with the Captain and Manager.
