Barossa Junior Representative Teams 2022

Published Thu 17 Feb 2022

U15 & U18 pathway to Zone Championships

Hockey SA has re-zoned and divided the state into 5 Zones, 3 metro and 2 regional zones. To view changes to the HSA participation and pathways events click HERE

It is envisioned that having the two regionals zones, North West and South East, that this will result in stronger regional teams participating at the higher level. Providing for a greater ability for players to perform at their best at the Zone State Championships, held in Adelaide on the 15th-17th July.

There were many meetings with HSA and our North West Zone Association Representatives after the announcement by HSA of the new Participation and Pathways events last year. Then more after the scheduled dates for these events that came out late last year. Though not ideal in many aspects for our Regions, with regards to the dates of the U13 Championships and the U15 & U18’s Carnival. It has been decided to go ahead with the schedule for this year, with the opportunity for reassessment and change of dates and programming for 2023.
