Today was a great day for 3 Maori hockey rohe, hosts Tamaki Makaurau, Taitokerau, and Waikato-Maniapoto. The event was held at Kolmar Park in Papatoetoe which is right in the middle of all 3 rohe. The intent of the Tri-Series was to give players who may not be playing at next weeks tournament a taste of Maori Hockey in 2019. We had all “walks of life” today, young, oldish, and plenty in the middle. The age range was 13 to 55, so a great effort by all.
Each rohe had a mix of their A and B team players where possible with the focus on developing the B players and integrate them with the more experienced A players. There were no trophies today. No winners or losers. Just experience, fun, hockey, and growth in our game.
This initiative is driven by a handful of keen administrators for the 3 rohe, Tracey Edmonds, Boss Edmonds, Gail Ambler, Margi Kay, Scott Woolf, Phil McConnell, and Ethan Hohneck. Passion and determination at the heart of every organisation, ka pai whanau.
