NZ Masters Selection Process 2018

Hockey New Zealand have decided that due to the date of National Tournament they will not run Trials over a weekend as we have done previously. 

They would like as many players as possible to attend the National Masters tournament in November, however they do realise that not everyone who wants to make themselves available for New Zealand selection will be able to attend for various reasons, not the least that they have taken leave for 2 weeks already this year after attending the World Masters Games in 2017 and the Trans Tasman Masters Challenge the following week. 

Given this information, Hockey New Zealand have decided that in order to be eligible for selection into the New Zealand Masters 2018 World Cup sides, players must have attended at least one of the following:

  • World Masters Games Hockey tournament, April 22nd – 30th 2017
  • Trans Tasman Masters Challenge, May 2nd – 6th 2017
  • National Masters Hockey Tournament, November 19th – 25th 2017

New Zealand Masters Coach, Coach/Player and Manager Selections

HNZ are looking for nomination for the above positions. 

Our focus now turns to the 2018 World Cups in Spain and ensuring we are able to give our teams and players the best possible preparation to bring home gold! 

Please complete the attached form and send back in to HNZ ( by Friday 1st September 2017. It is HNZ’s aim to have all coach positions selected and filled by Friday 15th September 2017.
