Most games are held on Saturday during the main winter season. Over the summer months there is a break in regular competition. However hockey can continue for those wanting more, with options such as Hookin2hockey for the younger players & summer hockey for older juniors and adults. There are many avenues for more ambitious players to play at a more competitive level including Junior Country Championships & Junior State Championships.
Drouids have players of all abilities, from beginners to those who compete in country championships. Many players take on leadership roles within the club such as coaching younger players.
We pride ourselves as having a supportive friendly environment that caters for all skill levels.
Players get the opportunity to gain general fitness, learn about what skills are needed within a team environment, and if they wish, they can have leadership roles.
Some players and parents elect to contribute to the game by assisting with coaching and by learning to umpire.
There are many additional ways for players & parents to contribute to the club and be part of the “Drouids Team”.
