As the AFL Series comes to a conclusion, head down to Geelong for another team sport competition. Victoria will once again host the Inline Hockey National Championships after 9 years from 26 September to 4 October at the Geelong Arena. For readers familiar with hockey, just think of this fast and exciting indoor and outdoor sport as hockey on wheels. It involves 2 teams of minimum 5 players per team, and can be played by both genders of all ages. In fact the competition has age categories running from under 11 years to over 50 years.
This National Championships organised by Skate Australia, the Inline Hockey Australia National Executive Committee, Skate Australia Victoria Inline Hockey (SAVI) and supported by the City of Greater Geelong, will see teams from all across Australia come together again and battle for the National Trophy. The 2013 Title was won by Queensland so they will be defending their win against Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, Tasmania and Western Australia. Players will also be vying for the chance to be selected to represent the country at the 2015 Oceania and World Championships. Entry to the Championships at Geelong Arena is FREE so grab your family and friends and support your favourite team. For details of schedule, check out the Skate Australia website.
