Training in 2023

PRE SEASON FITNESS: Open club preseason fitness commences at the clubhouse on Wednesday 8th of February at 630pm. A free BBQ sausage sizzle will be provided for dinner to all attendees at this opening session.

As I get more information this year I’ll note it here, below is the training for last year.

All 2022 coaches have now made contact with last season teams to gather lists of returning/new players for this season. If you have not yet responded please do so soon so we can begin confirming nominations for comps.

For any further information please contact your coach from last year. If you are a new or returning player from an early season you can contact us through our Facebook or Instagram pages, as well as email: kingscliffhockey@gmail.com
