Why play INDOOR HOCKEY? Read what the experts have to say!

 

The Bloem Bears were established in 2013 and have sent teams to the PSi Nationals tournament every year since then. We sent two teams to compete in the PSi Nationals 2017 in Cape Town and six teams to compete in PSi Nationals in 2018! Over 2,000 players competed in the PSi Nationals from across South Africa (pver 26 franchises) and it was a life experience these players will never forget. They got to play against the best in SA and meet SA's best hockey player Austin Smith as well as a FULL team of international Olympic and World Cup gold medal winning all Star players from Germany and Holland. The SA indoor hockey team was in action vs the PSi ALL Stars team which was the best indoor hockey even seen on SA shores. PSi isn't just hockey... it's friendship and the biggest amount of fun anyone can have including DJs, dancers, performers and prizes! PSi is the spirit of indoor hockey!

 

Congrats to all the Bloem Bears players, parents and coaches who were part of the Nationals 2018 team! They did us super proud! 

 

Now we start the second league of 2019! Don't miss out!

PSI league explained:
PSI is league based so there are no practices but players arrive for their timeslot as per the fixtures / website each week and play games. However in the first week we do a coaching session and some fun training matches and we divide everyone into fair teams for the league. Each team gets a designated coach and they play 1 - 2 games of varying length depending on league numbers and size. The coach helps the players throughout the games and gives advice and pointers as they play. So they learn through playing and doing  - the best way!
 
 
Bloem Bears Notices:
  • Please be at the venue 20min before your allocated time slot.
  • Once you are placed in a team, you will remain in that team for the remainder of the league.
  • The fixture schedule will be released once all league teams are finalized.
  • You can play indoor hockey with a normal hockey stick but Princess indoor sticks are recommended. 
  • Please bring all hockey kit: gum guards, shinnies, gloves: players are expected to play with all safety gear.
