The Montgomery Club was formed in 2005 to support Hockey at Scotch. Its name recognises Bob Montgomery who in 1922 donated funds for the formation of the Montgomery Sports Field.
Tea and coffee at Home games: Hockey is played on Saturday mornings at the Montgomery hockey pitch and the Junior School Oval.
The Club supplies Tea and Coffee facilities for Scotch and visiting supporters, at each home game.
Welcome Barbecue: At the beginning of the season we hold a barbecue particularly aimed at welcoming new players and their families. We encourage the parents to watch their son’s play, stay to support the Scotch 1sts match and meet other hockey families within their own and across other year levels.
Awards night: The club helps organise the annual Years 7-12 Awards evening. Family and friends listen to the boys wrap up the season, present recognition awards, and raffle prizes over dinner. In recent years, the event has been held at the Cardinal Pavilion.
Family Day: The Club runs an information stall and drinks stall.
Tours: A Hockey development squad of around 20 boys toured New Zealand in 2003 and 2007, India in 2005, Argentina in 2009, Tasmania in 2010 and Perth in 2011. Scotch has hosted international tours from Canada, England and New Zealand as well as Interstate teams. The Club helps with billeting and supporting coaches and teachers in the organisation of these tour events.
Come to your son’s hockey games on Saturdays and meet other Hockey families. It’s more fun than just dropping him off. Help out at one of the major events. We always need photographers, helpers for the tea and coffee, table decorators, ticket sellers. Come to meetings: Club meetings are over wine and cheese and provide the opportunity to contribute your ideas for Scotch Hockey.
