Canterbury Under 18 B Girls Claim National Title -
 July 2011

Canterbury Under 18 B Girls won the final of the Hockey New Zealand Under 18 Girls Championship tournament in Hamilton, defeating Auckaland in a close final .

Canterbury's most successful team this past week the B Girls, won all of their matches in claiming the national Championship title. The semi final score at full-time was 2-all with Canterbury's goals to Libby Collings and Kodie Kutyn. Then in strokes, Canterbury goalkeeper Mel Harris made two great saves, and a third North Harbour stroke hit the post, as Canterbury comfortably won the stroke competition 3-1, with two Canterbury strokes untaken.

The Final against Auckland B was a very tight affair, with Libby Collings' goal early in the second half all that separated the two teams. Congratulations to the players on their success, and to team management - Mandie Godliman and Shirley Haig (coaches) and Hayley Moodie (manager).

Even Earthquakes can't not stop delivery - March 2011

February 22nd brought an abrupt end to the official cricket season in Christchurch. But it could not stop Coaching Solutions from delivering coaching for hundreds of children each week for the remainder of the season. Coaching during the week and games on Saturday still went ahead but in an informal way, even opening its doors to anyone from other clubs. Those that wanted to participate just turned up as usual to Elmwood Park. Thanks to all the Parents and Volunteers that still made this possible. I know it was greatly received by many children.




The Canterbury Magicians have won the Action Cup, women's one-day championship by beating Wellington Blaze by 27 runs in Christchurch. And the following week made light work of Wellington Blaze to stroll to a commanding win in the Action Twenty20 cricket final at the Wellington Basin.
