Inter Troop Scout Hockey Tournament @ Adeyfield Free Church
Jan 16 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Update

Dear Leaders,

Network have planned an inter-district hockey tournament for the Scout section. The event will take place on the 16/01/2021.

Registration 9AM for 9.30 start. Finish 3.30pm

Location; The New Adeyfield Free Church.Adeyfield Free Church, Hosking Ct, Maylands Avenue, HP2 4GZ

Please note that parking at the site is limited. If parents can lift share to and from it would save space and time. Please encourage scouts to bring board games for entertainment. Phones will be allowed, but volume must be kept off. Also a reminder to get team numbers back to me ASAP.
The closing deadline to register your teams is the 01/12/2020.

The teams will be made of 5 scouts (1 goal keeper, 4 fielders). We will also require at least 1 leader/parent helper from each group to be with their teams for moral support and to help keep the peace while teams are waiting to play. There is a cost of £5 per child to cover expenses of the event.

There is a penalty system for the day, although I desperately hope it won’t be needed. However, if it is then it may result in individual players being disallowed to continue playing (the rest of the team will continue without the player). Whole teams also may be disqualified. As I say, I hope these won’t be needed.

On a cheerier note, we are hoping to have a really enjoyable day and we hope you will join us in making that happen. If we can get an idea how many groups would like to field at least 1 team then I can say whether we can allow for more teams.

Can you please send all your team lists too me as soon as possible. Bring the health forms with you on the day. Also contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support.
