National Under 18 Tournament

Some two years on since the last National U18 event Harbour Hockey was delighted to welcome the return of our Vantage National U18 Tournaments for 2021. The 2021 edition will see the return of Association-based competition. The National U18 Tournament is now the first national tournament opportunity for all players/umpires/coaches/manages and allows an opportunity to ‘stick your hand up’ on the national stage.

The Vantage National U18 Women’s Tournament saw 21 Association teams descend on Wellington to compete for the Amanda Hooper Memorial Trophy. The National U18 Men’s Tournament, hosted in Hamilton saw 20 Association teams compete for the Paul Ackerley Memorial Trophy.

NHHA fielded two womens’, and two mens’ teams into this competition in 2021.

We thank Cello for their continued support as the naming right sponsor of our Under 18’s teams.
