Kahutara School Hockey

August 21, 2019 August 2019, Sports No Comments

Kahutara School have managed to enter a total of three teams in various Wairarapa Hockey Association junior grades played at Clareville Hockey Stadium this season, a mean feat for a school of our size. 

The Kahutara Blue team play Tuesday nights in the 6 Aside quarter field grade. The team did so well in the early season grading games they have ended up in a tough grade for a young team. Made up of our youngest players from school, comprising 5 to 8 year olds, they are a competitive team showing some great promise. 

The Kahutara 6 Aside A team play Friday nights in the half field grade. This grade is designed as a step up from the quarter field grade, with a lot more space for players to pass. More emphasis is placed on learning the rules of hockey with penalty corners, long corners and feet obstructions played. This team is made up of mainly 9 and 10 year olds, and has a number of talented players. 

The 1st XI has remained in the 11 Aside B grade this season. After two challenging grading games at the start of the season, the team has rallied well with 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. Backing up last years’ runner-up performance was always going to be though with losing six Year 8 boys to College at the end of last season. Despite this, the group is working well as a team, with the younger members, having stepped up from lower grades, contributing to the team performance. The team is being well led by Captain Billy McCreary and Vice-Captain Tom Clarkson.
