21-23 February 2019 : National Senior Indoor IPT [Pietermaritzburg]
After an absence of many years, Indoor Hockey has now been back in Northerns for two seasons. Judging by the results achieved in such a short time, there are some exciting years ahead!
The 2019 Senior Indoor IPT will be taking place from 21 to 23 February in Pietermaritzburg and Northerns will once again be sending men's and women's teams. NB: the dates were originally published as 23 to 27 February on this site, but SAHA changed this. All eligible senior players are invited to join the squad practices which will be used as selection trials. NB: even players who won't be able to attend the IPT are welcome to join in. These sessions will be on Mondays 14, 21 and 28 January for men and Wednesdays 16, 23 and 30 January for women. All sessions will be at Tshwane Korfbal Park.
The pre-season will also include two pre-IPT Round Robin tournaments on 26 January and 2 February (at a venue TBC) where all squad players will participate.
The Northerns teams will be announced in the week of 28 January, whereafter team practices will take place on Mondays 4, 11 and 18 February for men and Wednesdays 6, 13 and 20 February for women.
The cost to take part in the three squad training sessions, as well as the pre-IPT Round Robins, is R500 per player.
The cost for taking part in the IPT is still being budgeted – in 2018, when the tournament was in Cape Town, the cost was approximately R5000 per player. There will be a junior pre-season programme from 19 January to 9 March where IPT and squad players will be invited to offer their services as coaches to work off their tour fees. The venue and more details will follow soon.
