Kapiti Kings - back in the day!
2015 Nationals will get underway in just four days from now with the the Under 12, Under 14, Junior Women, Under 19 and the Senior grades playing over the first four days.
Finals for Under 14, Seniors and Under 19 will take place on Wednesday following the finals on Tuesday for Under 12 and Junior Women.
The 20th Anniversary celebration will commence at midday on September 30th. We encourage you to time your arrival and departures around this event and stay and take part in the festivities. We will have player and volunteer awards, a Kapa Haka performance and a great exhibition of our sport provided by the NZ All Stars and NZ Maori team.
Both teams will provide a game not to be missed, each team is made up of players who have been involved with our sport for some years, have represented New Zealand at various events through out their inline hockey careers and have made themselves available through a selection process.
The coaches have both had a long standing involvement with playing and coaching and will bring their expertise to the "bench" to guide their teams during the game. The coaches are; Shane Clark (NZ Maori) and Bevan Varney (NZ All Stars). The team managers are also well placed to assist their team coach and players in the build up and on the day. Both with experience locally and internationally, adding to the professionalism brought to the sport, they are; Pete Shields (NZ All Stars) and Willy Harvey (NZ Maori)
The National Champs second section commences later in the day on Wednesday with the Premier, Senior Women, Under 10 and Under 16 teams competing for Nationals honours, presentations will be Saturday October 3.
There is a pleasing number of teams attending this year.
