TOUR VENUES & HOCKEY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teams will play at a different venue each day however on Day 4 medal matches will be centralised. 
Please understand that doing Sections this year will be extremely difficult as the tournament has been split for the past 2 years. However, the results of the past 3 years will be taken into consideration.
My advice (as an ex-PSI parent), is to book accommodation rather close to the Hotel than trying to be close to a venue. Cape Town traffic is a nightmare and getting about becomes a mission - easy to miss a game. If you have 2 children on tour, plan wisely - you will most probably not be able to see all the games of both.)

Over the period of both events, teams are expected to play over 1000 matches. Each team will play a minimum of 8 matches over the 4 days. We will be splitting the u13 and u16 tournament into 3 sections (A, B and C), and the u14 and u18 tournament into 2 sections (A and B) in each age and gender group.
However, this will be confirmed once final team entries have been received. We will formalise pools and fixtures which will be uploaded onto the website www.psihockey.co.za/Nationals2022 as soon as they are final (+- 2 week prior to the tournament).
We have to confirm FINAL team entries by 15th October 2022.

TRANSPORT DURING THE EVENT
We have our own dedicated transport solution which includes both Airport transfers, the opening function, social outings and daily shuttles to and from venues included in the Tour fee.

FOOD AND DRINK
PSi Head office will be supplying dinner for all players, coaches and managers at the Opening function as well as on the evening of the Exhibition or Test match.
Incoming teams must arrange the balance of their dinners (2) and lunches for the other days. Each venue will have adequate tuck shops and the hotels will supply daily breakfast. Additional dinners can also be arranged at the hotel.

Dietary requirements need to be submitted prior to the event for Halaal, kosher or wheat free participants for the two dinners supplied.

KIT
Kit can be ordered from the website www.hockeycompanytshwane.com/titans-kit-order. Same kit as previous years so beg, steal or borrow is also an option. There will be opportunities to try for size, but if wrong it can be exchanged when collecting. Pre-ordering makes it easy for us to get an indication of what to order (in August).
The deadline for kit will be 20th October 2022, but it will be GREAT if it can be way earlier (Now).

COVID 19 REQUIREMENTS
PSi will comply with the requirements that will be stipulated by the Government.
Based on the alert level prior to Nationals, we will be given a detailed document on the necessary rules and regulations.


AFRICA ALL STARS SELECTION
We will be selecting an Africa All Stars team for u14, u16 and u18 from Nationals 2022. The u14 & u16 teams will travel to Europe in 2024 to play against top clubs in Germany & Holland. (see 2021 All Stars Page:  https://www.hockeycompanytshwane.com/2021allstars)
