Club Hoodies


Over the next few weeks we will be selling very stylish Varsity Hockey hoodies. Committee members will be bringing down samples to trainings so that you can see what they look like. The design will be similar to that shown here, plus the logos of our other sponsors.

Purchasing hoodies will be done through Club Hub so that we can more easily tie orders to payments. An email will be sent out to let you know when orders open - we hope to have orders collected by mid June so that hoodies will be available to be collected early July.

The first 80 hoodies purchased will cost $35, with any hoodies after that costing $50. Get in touch if you have any questions!

Get Fitter For Cheaper


Normally a 12 month membership at the Uni Rec Centre would cost up to $545 but as a special offer for club members you could get it for only $390. Email info@varsityhockey.co.nz for more information about how to take advantage of this deal. It's not too late to start putting in the extra fitness work!

In other news, if you are recovering from an injury keeping you out of the gym or off the hockey field then you might want to check out Five Cross Performance Plus Physio. They offer free ACC treatment for University sport members and are very good at what they do. It's also a great place to buy useful things such as strapping tape, braces or shoe supports.

Club Hub


The University is now using Club Hub for managing sports clubs.

Club Hub is mandatory for all club members.

It has been set up for our members to register as a club member with all their details and will reduce paper form filling. Member details will be saved for ongoing seasons. The Club Hub also takes members through to their subs for the season and outlines payment options including online banking. We will add to the hub during the season with notices and allow coaches to email their players during the season. Please note that coaches need to register as well so we can set them up to email their players etc.

Here is the link to club hub for you to register:

1. You need to register. This will also take you through subs info.
2. An email confirming your email address will be sent to you.
3. You need to confirm your email address.
4. Then go to Tasks - Make a payment which will have subs to pay.

The first half payment of subs is due 7th April. The second half is due June 9th.

Quiz Night!


Varsity Quiz Night, with Quiz Master William Harding!

Great chance to meet your club, socialise with your team mates and kick the year off with a bang.

The theme this year is APOCALYPSE 2012! Some say that according to the ancient Mayan civilisation the world will end this year, though there is no mention of how this might occur. Put together a team and come up with some cool costumes reflecting how you think armageddon will happen. Will it be zombies, giant asteroids or aliens? Perhaps Judgment Day itself or maybe a machine takeover of the planet is just around the corner a la Terminator and The Matrix? Are we doomed to become a race of irradiated mutants in a nuclear winter? Or will a nuclear apocalypse cause us to regress into a bunch of savages and marauders?

Where: Gallagher Hockey Centre
Date: 31 March 2012
Time: 7pm
Cost: $5 per person

Pretty topical theme, so get creative and come up with some sweet apocalypse-themed costumes and be in to win some epic prizes.
