April 17th Just a small update
today. I did thelast update on another computer and didn't realise
that it made all the images dissapear....sorry about that. Lance
has also told me I had made an error in the Open B division Stats
and points table. I gave the Pretenders a loss in the first round
when they actually had a win. The points have now been adjusted.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thanks Lance.
GOOD LUCK to all the Newcastle players trveling to Cairns on the
24th April to play in the Oceania games.
Tuesday March 20th I have finally
been able to get the player
statistics online. I have only been
asked to keep the stats for the Senior part of the club. I will
approach the Junior commitee to see if I can have access to the
Junior score sheets. The Stats are, unfortunately, not very accurate
again this year as we have a number of new people doing the cscoring.
IOf you want you statistics kept correctly then make sure you
give your number to the scorers each week.
Friday 2nd March 2001 At Last I have
some information from the club! The draw for the next few weeks is no online. There have
been a number of changes affecting the club this year. The club
has been split into Junior and Senior division with a seperate
committee running each division. The divisions have been renamed.
We now have 12& Under, 14& Under etc instead of the old
system of Under 13, Under 15 etc. I believe the cutoff dates remain
We have had a drop in the number
of players this year, partly due to the new Ice Skating rink opening
late last year. The Hunter Ice Skating Stadium's web site can
be found at http://www.huntericeskating.com.au
Ice Hockey has really taken off in Newcastle with over 300 players
currently training with the season commencing in April.
Due to the lower numbers at Newcastle Inline there
is no 16& Under or 18& Under divisions. Any player in
these age groups must play in the Senior A or B divisions.
In the senior divisions there have been a number of
changes among the teams with players changeing teams to build
stronger teams. I am again compiling the Stats for the Senior
club and should have them online in the next few days.
will be held in Newcastle on the 27th and 28th of March. If

Friday 10th November All Statistics have been updated today. Only
one round of the season left before the semi finals begin. The
points spread in most divisions is fairly close and next weeks
games will be very important for some teams. If you use the site
regularly, please let me know via email or sign the guest book.
Friday 3rd November Once again I must
appoligise for not updating the site more often. The Results,
Points Table, Draw and Statistics are up to date.
Saturday 12th August I have added a
link from the Menu Bar at left directly to the new Statistics
Page. This Page shows the Statistics for each Team, Player and
Goalie. The Draw for the next few weeks is also now online. I
have added a few new links to the LINKS page, including a link
Lightning which is another RSA club in Victoria.
Wednesday 2nd August 2000. Oops!! The draw for week 2 I had originally
posted was incorrect. The new draw is now online.
The Summer Season started last
weekend. Several teams have had player changes with a few new
players starting and some of the more skilled players joining
together to make stronger teams. We have once again split the
Under 13's into A and B divisions due to the large number of players
and the large differences in skill level.
I have added a few new features
to the web site. In the POINTS
TABLE I have added the number of games
played, wins, losses, shots for and against, goals for and against
and penalty minutes served by each team. From the RESULTS
page there are links to Player and Goalie
statistics showing goals, assists and Penalty minutes for each
player. For goalie there are shots, goals, saves, ratio and %
Tuesday July 25th. The draw for the
first 2 rounds of the Summer competition are now available. I
have received the results from the Finals and the MVP points at
last. I will post them in the next day or 2. There have been several
changes to some of the teams and we hope this will make for a
better level of competition. Unfortunately we have had to cancel
our Super 4's competition due to a number of reasons.
Tuesday 16th June
The NSW State titles
held over the long weekend where a great success. All teams attending
have improved a great deal in the last 12 months. It was good
to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones. Check
TITLES page for results
of all games and the Medals awarded. The State teams have been
selected and are available HERE. The Masters team has not been finalised
yet due to players not eligible to play in Masters and Open teams(
All other age groups are allowed to play their own division plus
the one above, but not the Masters/Seniors). There is also a new
division being introduced this year. The Junior Ladies is open
to female players under the age of 17. Hopefully we will be able
to field a team in this division.
Make sure you have
registered your TEAM for the Summer Tournament.

I have also added

some minor problems. You can see the FINAL draw here. DRAW for the NSW State Titles.
We have a new club playing at the State Titles. Great Western

with round 8 results.The DRAW has been updated to the end of the
Newcastle hosted an Inter-Club
league on the weekend (May 13-14) with teams from Armidale, Tamworth
and Newcastle attending. Some excellent games of hockey wher played
on the weekend and everyone had a great time. The Under 15's ended
with newcastle and Armidale winning 3 games each and meeting each
other in a final. The final was very fast and furious with the
score at 3-3 at the end of the game. A period of 'sudden death'
followed with Newcastle scoreing in the final 40 seconds to take
out the Gold medal. For the results of all games see the State League page.
I will add some photos from the league as I get them developed.
7th May 2000 I
have added a Photo of the Under 18's Ausralian Team to the GALLERY page.

find any Broken Links or have any suggestions please EMAIL me

6th May 2000 Congratulations
to all our players who made the trip to New Zealand for the Oceania
games. Due to an error by RSA administration the Australian and
New Zealand Teams used different dates as the cut off point for
each division. This resulted in our players having to play against
older players. Australia's teams all played well and were a bit
overwhelmed by the very aggressive and physical game played by
New Zealand. Special congratulations to the Ladies team. After
4 games the score was 2-2 so the final game was very hard fought
(The game of the week according to those who were there). At the
end of normal tyime the score was 4-4. No score was added during
sudden death overtime and a penalty shoot-out resulted. New Zealand
put 2 in the net to Australia's 1. WELL DONE LADIES.
Congratulations to all Australian players.
Congratulations and thank you to NEW ZEALAND for hosting
I have continued to update the site adding a calender
to the Tournaments

5th May2000 Most

I am trying to make the site easier to navigate and information
easier to find. I have added a number of new pages to the site

from past events such as State Titles etc from previous years.

WEDNESDAY December 8th A Grade: The Dishwashers beat the North Stars
in a very close game last night. The game went into the second
period of overtime finishing 5-4. The older more experienced North
Stars have lost the last 2 seasons to the younger and fitter players.
Eqinox beat out the Coyotes for the minor placing.
In the B Grade the Mighty
Dads defeated the Hockeyholics in another very close game. The
Dads managed to put one away in after about 7 minutes of extra
time. Not a bad achievment for a bunch of dads, most of them have
only been skating for 2-3 years, some playing their first season.
All the 15 years olds from the Hockeyholics were in shock..........and
we willl never let them forget :-). The Dads have won the silver
medal for the last 3 seasons so the gold is well deserved this
time around. The Fannys (Ladies Team) beat minor premiers Team
EMS 8-4 for the minor placing.
I will have a full report
on the Junior divisions in a day or 2.
Wednesday 1st December
Once again I am sorry for not
keeping the site up to date (especially at the pointy end of the
season) someone has gained access to the site and changed my password.
The problem has now been fixed.
The Final round of the State leagues
was a great success. Newcastle won gold medals for Masters, Seniors,
Ladies and Under 19s. The Under 17s won silver and Under 15s and
Under 13s won bronze medals.
The Local Competition is coming
to an end with all Semi Finals being played this week.The U11s
will see the Hot Wheels face the Barbarians for
1st place and the Deadly Ducks play the Hawks for
3rd place. In the U13s B div. the Warriors face The
Jets for 3rd place while the Maitland Rollers face
off against The Pythons for the Gold medal. In the U13s
A Division no Surprises that the Roller Rats will be in
the final, facing off against the Super Pucks who beat
out the Blackhawks in a very closly played Semi. The Blackhawks
will face the Rockets for the bronze medal game. The Rockets
have had a very good season to make it into the playoffs as all
members of the team are at the younger end of the age group and
beat out teams of older/bigger players. They will be a team to
watch next season as the older players move into the Under 15's
In the Under 15s , again no surprise
that the Supercats are into the final. They will be facing
the Blade Runners who beat Team eXtreme in the Semi.
Team Extreme let themselves down by not playing as a team
being beaten by a team of younger players who held it together
and proved that team play will beat a team of 'stars' who wont
pass the puck. Team EXtreme will face the Storm Crushers
for the bronze medal game.
The Under 17s sermi-finals will
be played tomorrow night(Thurs Dec 2nd).
The Open B division (our fastest
growing division) finals should be some good games with the Mighty
Dads finishing 4th and beating 1st placed Team EMS
in a close semi-final winning 5-4.The Dads will face The
(young guns) HockeyHolics in the final with EMS playing
Fannys for 3rd place. GO
THE MIGHTY DADS.
The Open A division final will see
the more experienced North Stars against the younger (and fitter)
Dishwashers in the gold medal game. Eqinox will play the Coyotes
for the minor placings.
Final round NSW State Leagues:
20th -21st November 1999, Skateline Newcastle.
This will be the final
league for 1999 with teams from Shoalhaven, Hawksbury, Armidale
and Tamworth traveling to Newcastle to compete. See PRESS RELEASE.

members who made the weekend a great time for all. Thanks also
to the referees and other officials for their hard work.
The most exciting game of the weekend
was the Under 13 final between Newcastle and Armidale. The game
was tied 4-4 at full time and after 5 minutes of 'sudden death'
overtime the score was still even. Matthew Lerch scored a goal
for Newcastle with 6 seconds remaining in the second overtime
