We have finalised the details of the TEM summer program of activities for 2017. There are 5 main programs, tailored to meet all age groups from U10 to 60+. The most exciting thing is that all competitions, with the exception of indoor, will be at H1/H2 this season so we’re looking forward to increased take-up from all our players.
As you can appreciate, a lot of work goes into these activities and we need some offers of help in coordinating programs, registrations, etc to make sure everything ticks over nicely and that players have a dedicated contact. Its not hard, and will be very rewarding and heaps of fun, so if you are interested in helping out, please contact one of the club VPs or Victor.
Costs – $120 per activity discounted to $100 for a second or subsequent competition.
If you played at another club over the winter, we can arrange a dual registration, and if you did not play you will need to purchase a Hockey Victoria off-season membership at $20 for Juniors and $25 for Seniors.

The programs and a brief description are:
1. Outdoor intraclub
TEM is running a mid week intraclub competition with 6 womens teams and 6 mens teams playing on a Thursday. Each team will field players from across all senior grades, as well as U14 and U16 juniors. There will be opportunities to build skills, develop friendships across the club and integrate juniors into senior hockey. Timeslots are 7pm/8pm/9pm, with 8 rounds.
Who for: U14 Shield + top age U14 boys, all U14 Girls, all U16 boys and girls (+ seniors and masters from all grades)
2. Junior Indoor
An excellent way to improve fitness and stick skills because of its intensity and the small indoor space. The ball cannot be raised except for a shot at goal, and boards are used to keep the ball in play. Age groups are mixed in U13, U15 and U18 with TEM also fielding U15 girls teams. Check the attached calendar for details of season dates:
Who for: anyone who has played season 2017 on the field is encouraged to give indoor a try.
Hockey Victoria has added a great new venue to its indoor competition this year, MSAC in Albert Park. This will enable full 6-a-side indoor to be played on a full sized pitch for the Shield Competitions. Dandenong will again be the venue for the Pennant competitions.
TEM will generally Field a Shield and Pennant team in each competition so will try to select teams appropriate for the different competitions. For many years, TEM has also welcomed Juniors to our indoor ranks who play winter competitions for other clubs and we will do the same this year.
