The "Tomahawk" program gives young boys and girls aged 4 – 9 years old, the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey, develop fundamental motor skills and make friends. The program is open to all new and existing players.  The program is also open to boys and girls over 9 years who would like to be involved and who have not played hockey before, just ask on the day.

The Program:

Under the guidance of qualified coaches and mentors and with a focus on safety as a key part of our game, each week the Tomahawk Program will include:

  • Level 1 - Basic hockey skills and fun modified games
  • Level 2 - Harder skills and more modified games
  • Level 3 - Game play based skills and small team games
  • Level 4 - Basics of positioning and game play with small team games and on-field coaches

The kids will progress through the levels as they improve. 


When and where:

The Tomahawk Program dates for 2024 have been set.

Starting 9 March 2024 the sessions will be held from 8.15am to 9.15am at the Hockey Fields in Woodstock Street Maryborough each Saturday.  All sessions during the course of the program will be on Saturday mornings at the same time.  The area will be clearly marked with flags and there will be an “Admin Tent” where you can sign in, ask questions and complete registrations.

  • Round 1 –  Free “Come and Try”
  • Round 2 – Aligns with School Term 2
  • Round 3 – Aligns with School Term 3

As this program is competency based (not age based), it doesn’t matter if they haven’t played before or have missed a couple of weeks.  They will be placed in the level most appropriate for their skills.

Presentation and Break-up will be held on 7th September 2024:

After the completion of Round 3 (outdoor season), we will host a Free break-up for the kids which will include fun games, free sausage sizzle, presentations and much more.
