The teammates and friends joined the club three years ago and juggle their hockey commitments with swimming and playing cricket and, for Rebecca, lacrosse.

The Perry Lakes-based club caters for players from age four, hosting skills and match sessions on Saturday mornings. Players in years three and four play in a nine-a-side competition and those up to Year 12 compete in the HockeyWA Junior Competition.

YMCC also has men’s and women’s seniors and vets teams, with former Kookaburra Jamie Dwyer playing for the club’s premier league team.

Top grade women’s player Katie Jolly (20) has played for YMCC for seven years, working her way through the junior and senior ranks.

Jolly has represented WA and Tasmania in state competitions since 2010 and has also played in the West Australian indoor hockey team. She said she was aiming to make the under-21 team this year.

The club will host a junior registration day this Saturday from 11am-2pm at Perry Lakes, Floreat.
