Gold Coast Hockey Carnival

JULY 2022

Field Hockey Court

GOLD COAST NETBALL CARNIVAL

Our event partner the Sports Super Centre has recently created a World Class competition standard synthetic hockey pitch. The state of the art fully certified facility was used as the training ground during the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and we are delighted to be able to use this facility for our event.

Our Gold Coast Rugby and Netball Carnivals have gained an enviable reputation over the last 30 years and we would be delighted to have teams join us on the Coast for our carnival.

 

The ethos of camaraderie and sportsmanship that has been built up at our events since its inception is quite unique and one of the main reasons for our continuing success.

There is no overall champion at our Carnival – instead one deserving group each year is presented with the coveted Spirit Award, decided on a vote of all participants: schools, clubs, referees and organisers.

 

There is also a Barbarian Award appointed to one player from each team.

The objectives of the Carnival are for players and officials to:

  • revel in the spirit of sport

  • enjoy a guaranteed number of matches without the pressure associated with school competitions

  • respect the time honoured ideals of amateur level sport

  • relish an opportunity to improve playing/coaching standards whilst enjoying a holiday at one of the world’s premier holiday destinations

 

Join us for a great week of Hockey mixed with Sun, Surf and Sand

As well as featuring the most modern training facilities for both elite and beginner athletes, it is also a dedicated training camp. The accommodation is affordable, and the facilities are designed to cater to everyone, from the demands of elite athletes, to the needs of those wanting a better and healthier lifestyle.

The Centre’s professional facilities are enhanced by the surrounding area, and a year-round subtropical climate that is conducive to sport.
