Waikato Invitational 2014


Waikato Invitational is taking place on the 30th of May, held here at the University of Waikato campus. Much like the Tertiary Challenge this is a super fun day and I encourage everyone to get involved. Registrations are open now at the Uni Rec gym reception (cost $25). Register before 19th May. Sports include: Basketball, Netball, Football, Touch, Hockey, Volleyball, Lacrosse, and Ultimate Frisbee. 

For any students who participate in this event we will be selling Waikato University Tribe Hoodies also from the Uni Rec for $35. These hoodies are available for anyone who participates in a inter-tertiary sport event on behalf of the University. 
Hockey is mixed gendered and is 6-a-side. Games start at 9am, with the final at 3pm. All games are played at Innes Common. We will aim to have one competitive team and one social team (depending on numbers), and we do need a goalie. Lunch is provided as part of the registration.

Waikato University Hockey Club AGM for the 2014 season


The AGM for 2014 will be held Wednesday 29 January in the ANZ Building Level 2, 130 Grantham Street at 7pm. It is important for as many people to come along as possible and get involved with how the club is run (come along even if you don't want to join the committee!). The main feature of the evening will be the election of the executive positions - if you would like to nominate someone for a position or stand for one yourself, please get in touch. The major roles are:

  • President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Equipment Officer
  • Mens Club Captain
  • Womens Club Captain

There is also plenty of room for people who want to be involved and help out when they can, without being in an executive position. We're especially keen to have extra people onboard who want to help out with club social events throughout the season. Many hands make light work, and the more people involved then the easier it is for everyone and the smoother the club runs!
