State Championship Team - U18 Women
Congratulations champion team
What an amazing achievement to win the state U/18 title against a very strong opponent in Townsville on their home turf. Testament that home crowds don’t win you titles – preparation, discipline and work rate do. You are now back to back state champions for under 18 women and some history has been made.
You have been undefeated for two years – not two minutes. Our team(s) keeps winning and there is a reason for that – more comprehensive and consistent training, individual work rate, and a disciplined and respectful culture .
Whilst the tournament is about the team it is important to acknowledge the state selections that are a product of a good team performance. Congratulations to Tayla Hayes, Maddy James, Emma Dick and Brooke Anderson on your QLD squad selection – very deserving selections.
To your two captains, Jamie and Eleanor, thanks for your leadership in your final year of under - age competition. What a great way to end it!
You have all done us very proud.............Well Done!!

Women's Masters Committee
I am writing on behalf of Hockey Australia to congratulate all involved in the planning and delivery of the recently completed Women's Masters Tournament on the Gold Coast.
Conducting an event over five age groups and three nations takes a significant amount of effort and expertise. The feedback suggests that the quality of both the competition and associated functions was high. Congratulations to you personally for your key role in coordinating this significant event. Just as importantly, we are very aware of the critical role that volunteers play in delivering an event of this size.
Would you please pass on my congratulations to all involved in delivering this tournament. Volunteers are a critical element of our sport. We appreciate the efforts of every volunteer who provided their time to deliver both the on?]field and off?]field components of this tournament so successfully.
With the Gold Coast bidding to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games, an event involving large numbers of participants from three Commonwealth nations was an excellent way to showcase our sport. We all trust that this is the first of many significant hockey tournaments held in the region in the run up to the Commonwealth Games should the bid be successful.
Once again, congratulations to all of the team involved in delivering a successful tournament.
