Minkey (Hookin2Hocky) is a modified form of hockey designed to introduce children to hockey. The games and rules are changed to ensure a simple and safe version of the game of hockey. The game is played on a smaller field with two 20 minute halves with a 5 minute interval. Goals are not recorded in the Minkey competition as skill development is the main objective. Swanbourne Primary School participates in the Minkey competition that is run by the Westside Wolves club. The competition takes place on Saturday mornings at College Park and it is a sight to behold. The teams are school based teams and students from years Kindy to Year 4 can play. New to this year is a new Kindy/PP session to be held at 9am at College Park. This is skills-based with some match play at the end of each session.
Registrations for the 2018 season are now open CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
