Get back 2 hockey

Mediocre Monday provides opportunities to come back from injury and the chance for those who have never played to stop watching the fun from the sidelines and pickup a stick for the first time. Originally aimed at Masters and beginners the idea has slightly morphed into sportsmanship hockey.

It is a great opportunity to try out new skills, lose some weight (many of our participants have experienced Monday slim down). It is also an avenue to returning from injury without the need to push yourself further than you have to in a game when the bench is missing. As there are no umpires it helps people chillax when the ball hits the opposition’s foot, it takes out the competitiveness and leaves you with a pile of amusement and entertainment. With some great backyard rules thrown in as you play.

The biggest aspect of Mediocre Mondays is including everyone that shows up and enjoying hockey. If you have lost the love and want to find it again pop down to Stead Park on a Monday at 6.30 and join the rest of us big kids.

As long as there is interest, Mondays will be running, no holidays here, as fun does not take a break.
