Hockey Champions

This has been a very successful Australian Sikh games for the VSA Hockey team. We have 2 teams in the Open Category and 1 in the Veterans. The 2 team on the Open competition performed at their best. The only better outcome would have been to have our 2 team play off the in Finals and not the Semi Final as it turned out.

I want to congratulate the VSA B team on a massive effort when all seem lost. Their focus, commitment and believe in themselves as a team saw them beat a talented Brisbane team. It was wonderful to be part of and see the events unfold.

Congratulations to the VSA A team – ASG Champions 2013 (Back to Back Champions).

This team showed that they have the skills, mental strength and ability to motivation themselves to achieve success. The hockey finals were a replay of last years’ finals and the result was the same. Beating NZ, as many of us watch on was just reward for the VSA A team who went through the competition with the best goal difference – Scoring 16 and Conceding 1. Fantastic effort and well done CHAMPIONS!

The Vets also held their own in the ASG. The Vets finished Runners Up after a heart breaking “sudden death” penalty shoot with Malaysia. It was wonderful to see many players come back and compete in this tournament. The Vets showed that competing and winning has been long in the VSA DNA.

I would like to acknowledge and congratulate the following individuals, who have worked tirelessly with me and making this a successful campaign for the VSA:

Hockey Management Team: Kamaljit Singh, Harbans Gill, Daljinder Singh and Sunny Bagri

VSA A: Kamaljit Singh (Manager), Satwinder Singh (Coach), Charanpreet Singh (Captains), Harsimran Singh (Vice Captain)

VSA B: Kamaljit Singh (Manager), Sarbir Singh (Coach), Ranjit Singh (Captain), Pankaj Singh (Vice Captain)

VSA Vets: Jab Bal (Captain), Sunny Bagri (Vice Captain)

ASG Hockey Coordinators: Jagtar Sidhu, Amarjit Sidhu, Jaswinder Sidhu, Gursharan Singh

I hope the events at the ASG have given all team the passion of compete at the next ASG in WA. In the hockey team there has been whispers of the “Treble”. I have worked closely with the boys and one this for sure … the one thing these boys do well on the pitch – “They always express themselves, are never boring and always for go for it”!
