NZ Maori Hockey 5s Senior Wāhine & Tāne teams are attending the FIH Hockey 5s World Cup in Oman in January 2024. We are aiming for Gold!
In July 2023 NZ Maori Hockey were invited to the Gold Coast, Australia, to attend the Oceania Hockey 5s qualifying tournament. Both our Senior Wāhine & Tāne teams played exciting hockey and finished with the Silver Medal. This meant that both our teams qualified for the FIH Hockey 5s World Cup in Oman in January 2024.
Hockey 5s is a relatively new game that relies on experienced coach/management team as well as a group of players who play hockey with that certain flare about them. "Throwing caution into the wind" so to speak where any given game is never over until that final whistle.
NZ Maori Hockey have never attended a Hockey World Cup and therefore have decided that it was about time the world saw what we were made of.
How can you help? By sharing our dream with us and supporting us with a donation will go a long way to ensuring that our teams participate in this "once in a lifetime opportunity".
We thank you in advance for your kind gesture and support. Nga mihi
The kindly donated money will go towards accommodation and airfares for the teams.
