Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of Roosters Hockey Club will be held on Monday 21st January 2019. Exact time and location shall be advised in the coming weeks.
The club is accepting nominations for all board positions for a term of one (1) year.
The club is also calling on Expressions of Interest for Coaching/Managing and other club positions. Expressions of interest are requested to be returned by the 7th January 2019 at the latest. Forms to apply are listed below.
While the regular part of the season has pretty much come to an end we still have two major activities left being our Junior and Senior Presentations and hopefully you have all reserved those dates to attend. It would be great to see both Junior and Senior membership mixing at both events where possible.
The Junior Presentation day will be on the 11th September at the Paradise Point Parklands. Same location as last year and for those that are new, this is on the southern side of the Ephraim Island Bridge and just south of the Paradise Point Sailing club, directly opposite the intersection of Milton Ave and The Esplanade. Some of us will be there from about 8am to set up so if you are available to come down and assist just let me know. We are still finalising the run sheet but will probably look to kick things off from about 10am. A BBQ lunch will be supplied with a small drink for all the players as well. If you have any particular dietary requirements please let us know.
The Senior Presentation day is at the Vibe Hotel in Surfers Paradise on Saturday 29th October. Details can be found in the flyer below. The cost does include food + a few drinks + entertainment.
Exciting news!!!! Two of our young Roosters have been named in the 2016 U15 Women's Qld No.1 team. Congratulations to Dayle Dolkens and Laney Smith. These are the only two from the Gold Coast named in the Qld U15 teams. A fantastic effort by both.
As indicated in the flyer we are entering 4 men's teams this year with 2 of those in Division 2. While we have the player numbers to make this happen we would still like to gain another half a dozen players if possible to ensure we have adequate numbers each week. You may know of someone that hasn't played for a season or two, or may be friends with someone that may be interested in giving it a shot at Div2 or higher. If you could please share this post with your friends to see if we can get the word out, that would be very much appreciated.

We have set up a new Facebook page for the Roosters Hockey Club and all existing members can follow our page to get up to date messages.
We will also be establishing a new website but in the meantime will try to keep the existing Coomera and NGC Hockey websites up to date with information.

The Roosters Hockey Club will be running a sign on day this Saturday the 14th February. This will be at Coomera Anglican College from 8:00am – 10:30am. This is open to all junior and senior players. The best way to get to us there will be to park at the Sports Centre carpark off Billinghurst Cres at the far end of the school rear, next to the swimming pool and gymnasium facilities. Just head up to the school buildings and we’ll be just around the corner.
We will also have our official sign on day with Gold Coast Hockey Association on 21st February 2015 at 8am – 10am at the GCHA grounds, Musgrave Ave, Labrador. Look for the Roosters table. Also on the same day we will be at the Sport Sampler Day at Helensvale Branch Library and Cultural Centre from 11-1 pm where new kids can come down and sample what it’s like to play.
North Gold Coast Hockey club is delighted to announce the appointment of Nikki Hudson as the 2014 Women's Head Coach.
One of the most successful women’s hockey players in the game’s history, Nikki Hudson played 303 games for Australia and scored 99 goals.
Nikki brings a wealth of knowledge and has just completed her Personal Training Qualifications.
A career highlight for Nikki was winning a ...gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, where she was the tournament’s leading goal-scorer. She further underlined her International standing when she was named captain of the World XI by the International Federation of Hockey in 2006.
The success and experience Nikki has obtained coaching and playing puts her in good stead as she embarks on the next stage of her coaching career as a Rooster!
We congratulate Nikki on her appointment and wish her every success.
We would also like to thank Julie Dimmick who made a remarkable impact of the club in 2013.
Julie's passion and hard work was most evident in the Division 1 women however her development of players and coaches throughout all grades has helped build the club to the most competitive it has ever been.
