As part of a scheduled review and staged transition of members the Masters Advisory Group (MAG) will see some new faces for 2020.
The group was established in 2017 to support the continued growth and development of masters hockey (35yrs+) throughout New Zealand. The aim is to provide a community perspective on issues relating directly to masters hockey including but not limited to; local participation opportunities, National Masters Tournament, International Masters Teams.
As part of the review the group has been expanded to five (5) to have improved representation across the country. In line with this change we warmly welcome Geoff Williamson, based in Tauranga, to fill the Central North Island role. Geoff carries a wealth of experience, being part of numerous committees and teams within Tauranga Masters since 2002 and not to mention he’s a pretty good player himself!
Another change sees Nicky Sayers (Wellington) complete her two-year term from the Lower North/Upper South Island role. As part of the inaugural membership Nicky helped guide and shape the group whilst always providing a strong voice for participation and engagement at the community level. We thank Nicky for her time, effort and passion and wish her well with the new challenges ahead.
Finally we are excited to welcome Leah Murphy (Wellington) to the group who will represent the Lower North/Upper South Island. Leah is passionate about keeping people fit and healthy through Masters Hockey and brings with her key attributes developed through her involvement as a player, coach, selector and administrator.
The group will get together for a planning day before the end of the year and look forward to actively engaging with our Masters hockey whānau.
