Junior Christmas festivities and changes to training

By Niall Couper

Sunday marks our Junior Christmas party. Lots of fun, food and magic, and also changes all round for training time

It is Christmas time for our juniors this Sunday and there will be lots going on!

All the boys and girls in the Under-6s, Under-8s, Under-10s and Under-12s have fun hockey-based activities on the Astro pitches at Eltham College from 10-11.30am.

It is training for all the other age groups, but at different times so please note below.

  • Under-14 girls: 9.30-11 at Colfes (Jeanette, Laxman & crew)
  • Under-14 boys: 1-2.30 at College Meadow (Sam & assistants)
  • Under-16 boys & girls: 11.30-1 at College Meadow (Fenno & assistants)

Then it will be food and entertainment in the Eltham College Dining Hall from 12 to 2pm. This will allow the under-14 girls enough time to come across from Colfes. And the under-14 boys and under-16s to pop in as well. We will be asking for a £5 or £10 donation per family to cover the costs of the hall hire and the magician we have hired for children’s entertainment.

For those that haven't attended a Hockey Christmas Party before we ask for food donations from each family based on the first letter of your surname – to feed circa 10 people. The categories are listed below and please no nuts.
PLEASE BRING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE ELTHAM COLLEGE DINING HALL which is in the main school. Someone will be around to direct you before 10am to show you where to bring your food. I have just put suggestions down so feel free to bring something similar in your category.
bring Sandwiches, - e.g. ham, cheese, cucumber, jam
Cheese strings, babybells, bread sticks, cucumber, carrot sticks, tomatoes, hummus/dips
Biscuits - Christmas selection boxes etc
sausage rolls, mini sausages, scotch eggs
cupcakes any variety
There is no need to confirm attendance we just look forward to seeing you there. Food will be served from 12.00 – if possible please put your kit bags back into your cars.
There will also be the now famous Blackheath Christmas Cake Competition. Cakes will be judged on appearance and taste. If you would like to enter you can bring the cake or cakes to the dining hall at Eltham College any time until 11.30am. Our co-chairs will be joined a few of our under-14 girls as judges.
We will be running two raffles on the day for adults and children to raise funds for goalie kit which costs around £800, more details on the prizes on offer can be found here. If you would like to contribute something to the raffle please contact Claire Vyas all contributions will be gratefully received. Tickets cost £2 each.
Look forward to seeing you all there
