Team Lists for Australian U19 and U23

There was a buzz at The Hobart Aquatic Centre over last weekend as selections were held for the age group teams heading to New Zealand for the Trans Tasman Competition in July 2014.

This years selections were particularly exciting. In 2014 Australia will field all four age groups, with the first ever  selection of a U23 Women team to complete the set. The buzz in the air culminated in whiteboards full of arrows and courts full of enthusuatic players aiming to impress.

As always the event was excellently organised and facilitated. The weekend involved selectors, coaches, speakers and guest mentors providing the highest level of training, advice, critique and support for Australia's next generation of underwater hockey players.

The excitement in Hobart was perhaps heightened by the omnipresent Aged Group Worlds in 2015. An event certainly in the minds of coaches and players involved in the weekend.

Thanks goes to all those who participated, and congratulations to those who made the teams.

Success for Australia

ozteam

Australian teams experienced great success at the 18th CMAS Underwater Hockey World Championships. The tournament was held in Eger, Hungary from 23 to 31 August 2013.

With 84 athletes and more than ten support staff it was the largest contingent Australia has ever sent to an international tournament.

All seven Australian teams progressed through to the semi final stage and four teams collected medals.

The Master's Men and Master's Women were crowned World Champions after winning their respective finals. The Master’s Women defeated South Africa 7-2 in the playoff game after going through the tournament undefeated. The Master’s Men won an epic final 4-1 against the Netherlands to secure gold.

The U23 Men had a seesawing final match against New Zealand but were defeated 2-4 to collect silver.

The Elite Men recovered from a heart breaking semi final loss to France (2-1 after extra time) to collect bronze. They defeated Great Britain 7-1 in a one sided final.

The Elite Women were unable to overcome a strong and well-drilled South African outfit in the bronze medal playoff. They tried their hearts out but were defeated 4-1.

The U19 Men and Women’s teams faced France and South Africa in their respective finals. The U19 Men lost 3-4 in an entertaining contest while the U19 Women lost 3-4 in a nail biting game decided in extra time.
