Glencore Junior Sports Grant

We are very pleased to announce that MHI has received a Glencore Junior Sports Grant to hold a 2-day Hockey 5’s carnival!

Planned for preseason 2025, this will be a key event to promote and grow our junior competition by kicking off with a fun way to further develop those core skills.

Stay tuned for further updates as we now start the planning!

NAIDOC WEEK 7th – 14th July

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

With 5% of our members identifying as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, Maitland Hockey Inc is very pleased to once again take this opportunity to recognise the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to hockey in Maitland and the Hunter as well as in our wider Community.

We will acknowledge and pay our respects on Saturday 6th July to the Aboriginal Peoples who have been in the areas around our hockey centre for more than 60,000 years, including the Wonnarua, Awabakal, Darkinjung, Worimi and Geawegal Peoples, as the traditional custodians of these lands.

We’ll share more posts about NAIDOC Week in the coming weeks. In the meantime further information can be found at: https://www.naidoc.org.au/

STEAMFEST IS THIS SATURDAY!

Please note that ‘Steamfest’ is on this Saturday in Maitland, so allow plenty of time for travel and parking and walking from your car to the field.

The old bowling club carpark is open but the field gate on that side is not accessible, so if you park there, you will have your walk the boundary fence to get to the front gate.

The (southern) gate nearest to the soccer field will be open if you park further up Elgin Street.
