Intermediate Format:

WHA and the Junior Division have made the decision to play all intermediate hockey as half field games. There will be two modules run this season;

  • 6 aside + Keeper (aimed at schools top teams)
  • 6 aside no Keeper

Within these modules there will be grading and then teams will be grouped for competition. For more information please attend the schools meeting.

The purpose of the change to half field is to increase the development of all players involved in the game. The advantages of this include:

  • Each player gets more touches on the ball
  • More touches on the ball equates to more hockey
  • Players cannot hide
  • Six-aside is more fun!
  • Promotes higher game speed
  • More individual skill focused (promotes skill development ahead of game knowledge which is better taught at the U15/U18 level)
  • Note: All grades are mixed teams

They won’t learn how to play half field: We are focused on player development. Smaller teams means increased involvement for every players in the game. The same tactics and skills used in 6 aside are also used in 11 aside.

If you would like to know more or have any questions or concerns, please attend our schools meeting.
