WPIHA sent 60 players to the SAIHA Junior National Championships in Pretoria this past June/July 2016. The tournament was held at the Forest Hill Shopping Mall. The players along with coaching, staff and parents, arrived via the Lanseria airport, and bussed to the cosy Centurian Road Lodge which was 10 minutes away from the rink.
The tournament hosted age groups from U12 - U20 and players were up at 3am in order to get ready in time and leave for the rink for the first games of the day taking place at 5am. The second grouping of games took place at 5pm and the tournament ran from Monday 27th June to Saturday 2nd July.
A tough tournament for all age groups with WP going up against the A and B teams from all the players in Gauteng and Pretoria. In short, WP came back with 1 GOLD, 3 SILVER and 1 BRONZE. Well done to all the players that traveled and represented the City of Cape Town.

Junior Coach and Development Guru, Sharief Kamish, organised a Saturday Afternoon public skating session for all the peewee hockey players within WP Ice Hockey with great success. The kids loved every minute of it and some of the parents dared their hands, and feet, at the task of ice skating too. A new-found admiration from the parents towards their young athletes as they zipped around the ice while parents clung to barriers, but all had a great time none-the-less. Many more of these to come!
