WARNING: There are groups and individuals out there that are trying to capitalise on the popularity of indoor hockey. They promise school players provincial colours for indoor hockey. No school player has ever been awarded age group provincial colours by a schools body in the history of indoor hockey in South Africa. The only way to get provincial colours for indoor hockey is as a senior player if you represent a club and get selected for your senior provincial indoor hckey team and actually participate in the annual interprovincial tournament (IPT). The level of the tournament is very high (vs senior national players who attend the FIH Indoor World Cup etc) so the chances of school players making it are very very small. But by playing with the Pitbulls, you will give yourself every chance of making the senior provincial team as a senior player once you have left school. We repeat, provincial colours indoor at schools level does not exist in SA hockey! Don't be fooled by these groupings who prey on you trying to get recognition for your son / daughter that does not exist. At PSi Nationals we have independent SA selectors who select a PSi ALL Star team. Thats basically the equivalent of making an SA junior indoor team (if they existed). And playing for the Pretoria Pitbulls is basically the equivalent of making your provincial indoor team (if they existed).
