Fair Go, Sport! in 2017

The La Trobe University Hockey Club will once again support Fair Go, Sport! in 2017, for the sixth year in a row.

Round 15 has been dedicated toward the cause – participating in the Australian Sports Commission initiative, pioneered by Hockey Victoria and Hockey Australia. Round 2017
Through the week during 4th-10th August, the club will celebrate and show our support in advocating for inclusive and diverse membership. Research shows that sport is a significant site of homophobic harassment, discrimination and exclusion and this needs to change.

There will be plenty of fun, with organised activities including the first ever Pride Round Club Night on Thursday the 3rd August with a very well-known public speaker AND we even play host to some hockey over the weekend:

Saturday 5th August at HOME

12:30 Women’s Vic League 1 Reserves
2:00 Women’s Vic League 1
3:30 Women’s Pennant D
5:00 Women’s Metro A

Sunday 6th August at HOME
12:30 Men’s Metro A North/West
2:00 Men’s Pennant E
3:30 Men’s Vic League 1
5:00 Men’s Vic League 1 Reserves

Members are encouraged to don their rainbow accessories with Captains wearing rainbow socks – but most importantly letting their fellow club members know the club is here to support them.
