Now that we’ve hit December and the word “Christmas” can be mentioned, I thought it was time to let you know of our upcoming festive frolics.
First up is our Onesie/Christmas jumper Training Night on Wednesday 12th December. Players come along at their usual training time dressed in something festive, a onesie, their pjs, or just normal clothes if dressing up ain’t their style. We will play an interclub tournament with bonus points for the best named and best dressed teams.
Our Christmas Party will take place on Wednesday 19th December at Haddington Rugby Club. Our hockeytots will kick things off at 1.30pm then from 4pm until 5pm it will be the turn of our U8s and U10s (P1-P5). After a quick turnaround, we will be ready to entertain the U12s (P6-7) from 5.15pm until 6.15pm. Dress code is smart, festive or sparkly and we will have games, a chill zone, music, prizes and of pizza! We need an idea of numbers so I’ll be creating an event on TeamApp for you all to respond to. Please respond so that we can order the right amount of pizza. If anyone’s child has any food allergies, please let us know.
Later in the evening of the 19th, it will be the turn of the junior committee, back to hockey ladies and the development team, to have their Christmas celebration. We will be eating at Mazzoli’s at 7pm and having a secret santa. If you haven’t already let Meg know you’re coming then get on the case now!
Our final festive frolic will actually be in the new year with the U14 and U16s. They are too busy with their social lives in December so we have traditionally gone with a January date instead. This time it will be Friday 18th January at Fountainbridge for some bowling and food. Looking at around 2.30pm/3pm for 2 games of bowling (approx £10) then either Nandos or Mr Basrai (around the world buffet). Again, I’ll do a TeamApp event so please respond.
Last note on Christmas – if any players are asking Santa for any hockey kit and he isn’t too sure what would be best, us coaches are happy to give him some advice 🙂
