Three Springs Hockey club is a small club located in Three Springs with a population of approx. 700. In the 2016 season we have 20 Junior members and 15 Seniors. The number of Junior members is fantastic! Last year (2015) was the first time we had been able to field a Junior team in 4 years due to the lack of numbers, now we have the fantastic problem of too many players. Three Springs Hockey Club has existed for many years of which there are no available records to show what year it began. Some of the Junior players grandparents played for Three Springs Hockey Club!
Value to the Community
Hockey is very valuable to the local community as it not only plays a vital part in keeping people fit but also is one of the major social outlets for players. Games are played on a Saturday and then if it is a home game, dinner and drinks are available for families to stay on and socialise at the club rooms. Due to the size of the town there are a limited number of sports to play, having a hockey club provides another sport that the local children can learn and play in their adult years. Playing sport also keeps the children on the field and not walking the streets getting into trouble due to boredom, which can be one of the downfalls of a small town.
Why the funds are needed
Due to a change in the Association rules, as of 2017 all hockey uniforms are required to display a number. Currently none of the Three Springs Hockey club uniforms have numbers as this was never a requirement. With this new rule the committee has decided to overhaul the uniform and make the Junior team and the Senior team uniforms the same as well as adding the numbers to abide by these changes. The whole $1450 would be used to purchase new shirts for all players. They would be then owned by the club and lent to players to use for the season. Our suppliers of uniforms currently charge $50 for Senior shirts and $30 for Junior shirt. With the numbers we currently have for Junior players and the coach this would equate to $630 and the Senior team and coach would be $800. There would also be a design fee from the suppliers which we have allocated $20 to cover.
