*please note the cost has been raised this year. This is due to THC deciding to forgo the raffle for the turf and instead building the cost into the team fees. 



Fun Sticks – No sports uniform required, they just wear their school uniform. However, it is compulsory for all players to wear shin pads, a mouth guard and covered shoes. Sticks will be provided, but if your child has their own stick please bring this along.

Mini Sticks & Kiwi Sticks - will be loaned the school sports uniform for their games. They will also be expected to have their own pair of navy knee high sports socks as part of the uniform. Children will need their own stick; and it is compulsory for all players to wear shin pads, a mouth guard and covered shoes.


In the past, Bay Orthodontics have kindly donated a mouthguard for each primary school player. We are awaiting confirmation if this will continue in 2022.
