2018 Season Details for Seniors & Graded Juniors Updated

Season training and match information has been updated with the most current information available to us from the training venue at Nikki Hudson Hockey Centre, Runaway Bay and Gold Coast Hockey Association.

Field availability is limited and creates a lot of challenge until we return to Labrador Tigerstix at Gold Coast Hockey Centre on 11 May after the Commonwealth Games organisers have packed up the additional hardware needed for the Commonwealth Games.  However with careful organisation, all juniors and seniors will still have a full season of hockey without the need for midweek games after March.

Like most other activities on the Gold Coast, we appreciate your patience as we all try to do our best to provide hockey for the kids.  Details for Juniors can be viewed on the Juniors 2018 Season Overview page.

Details for Seniors can be viewed on the Seniors 2018 Season Overview page.

Australian Kookaburra Squad Honours

Congratulations to Corey Weyer and Dylan Wotherspoon on their Kookaburras squad selection.
Dylan and younger brother Blake joined Labrador Tigerstix in 2017 to play in our BHL1 team and with their team mates and coaches, helped the team to go all the way to the grand final in Brisbane, but unfortunately the team was unable to get the win on the day.
Corey and his younger brother Tate have played with Labrador Tigerstix since they started as juniors. Corey has played with underage Australian teams previously but played his first matches for the Kookaburras senior Australian team at the Festival of International Hockey held in Victoria last year. The club is very proud of both Dylan and Corey’s achievements, and will miss them when they move to Perth in mid January to train with the Kookaburras squad. Keep up the training Corey & Dylan, and best wishes for upcoming selections and matches.  We hope to see you both playing at the Commonwealth Games in April!
