Share this article

Yarra Valley Hockey Club is seeking a goalie for their Women’s Premier League team.

Yarra is a family-orientated, inclusive, community club located in Ivanhoe, 10km from the Melbourne CBD. We cater for all ages and abilities ranging from beginners to elite in both juniors and seniors.

We were promoted to the WPL grade 3 years ago and have secured our position in this grade. We are in need of a goalkeeper for our WPL team for 2020 and beyond. We have a professional and experienced coaching team which includes an International coach and ex-state goalie & ex state goalie coach to develop our goalies. We pride ourselves on our friendly culture and our “whole athlete” program which includes but is not limited to dietician and well-being sessions.

Our players have input on what they want out of the season, what their goals will be (both as a team and individuals), what values the team will play & train by and work as a unit to achieve these. Some of the comments from our players surveys in 2019 show the cohesion we have at Yarra – “best coaches and season I’ve had in years”, “enjoyed the preseason program as it related to actual fitness needed in hockey”, “great drills at training that were relevant to focusing on a specific skill. Always varied, so not boring and repetitive. Training always focused on the game plan, which was great”.

If you are of premier league standard, interested in becoming part of our club and joining our family please contact Janice, our Women’s Rep at: womensrep@yarravalleyhockey.com.au
