Junior State Championships (JSC) 2021

A big championship that occurs outside of our HB season is the Junior State Championship (JSC).

These dates and venues have also been announced by HV for 2021.

JSC is on 1-4th July 2021. Due to the renovations at the State Netball & Hockey Centre the Boys championships will be in Shepparton, whist the Girls championships will be in Bendigo.

Players will represent the South West Region (Ballarat, Warrnambool, Portland, Hamilton, Glenelg, Ararat), and play for the South West Eagles.

The South West Eagles teams are in the same age and gender categories as JCC – U13, U15 and U18

Registration to apply for trials usually occurs in late January to March, with compulsory trials set down for 18th April 2021 in Warrnambool. Then, 4 training sessions are held either in Ballarat, Hamilton or Warrnambool. We are looking at an inter-regional match between the Eagles and the Lightning.

This is a great way again, to form friendships, play hockey against the best juniors in Victoria, and have fun.

More information on JSC is available either through, or the South West Eagles Facebook page

EGC Beanies and Scarves Fundraiser

The club is holding a fundraiser to enable the purchase of new metal short corner masks.

New EGC beanies and scarves will be available for purchase on Wednesday night training and game day.

Beanies are $25
Scarves are $35

All proceeds will go towards the new face masks and other equipment. The metal masks offer a high level of protection and cover a wide area of the face and head. We are hoping to provide masks for both junior and senior teams.

Purchase is by cash only.

Chocolate Drive Fundraiser

Our biggest fundraiser for the year is always our chocolate drive.

We raise more than a thousand dollars by selling chocolates, and use that money to subsidise the playing fees for our members.

All items sell for $1.00 and there are 60 items in a box- so each box is worth $60.00.

Boxes will be available at training on Wednesday nights.

The club thanks you in advance for your help!
