2017 Otago Senior Men and Women Trials

2017 Otago Senior Trials

Last year both our Otago teams did really well with the women coming 5th and the men coming 3rd! 
At Otago Hockey we aim to give every age group an opportunity to better their hockey and go further. The National Seniors Tournament is a high grade tournament which is along side NHL. Associations from all over the country entering teams. Hockey NZ selectors are there and watch a lot of the Seniors games as well as NHL. If you are over the age of 21 you can also be selected into the NZ Affiliates team which play against other national teams in a tournament in Hawkes Bay the following year, from that you can also make NZ Presidents and go to a tournament in Fiji!

Players must be over the age of 18 from the 1st January on the year of the tournament to be eligable for Otago Seniors. 

The 1st trial will be with the Southern NHL Trail.
If you wish to trial for Southerns NHL teams you can register for their trial here:
