Wily Coyotes Win Animal Magic

5 months ago By Andy Howell

The 2017/2018 Animal Magic season ended with Coyote's securing the top spot after a closely fought campaign

The 2017/2018 Animal Magic season ended with Coyote's securing the top spot after a closely fought campaign. Coyote Managers Tom and Gareth were incredibly proud of their players, citing how committed they were and how hard they worked as a team each week. With many of the older players moving up the youth system into Chester Hockey Club Beaver teams, they were particularly full of praise for the younger players who had to quickly take on more responsibility.

The annual Animal Magic awards presentation was well attended by, managers, helpers, parents, and players, and saw the Coyote's pick up the well deserved award and applause. All team managers gave a short speech and awarded their Coaches and Players pick for player of the season. Phil Lathaen, former Chimp's manager and long standing advocate of the Animal Magic setup, said "Animal Magic continues to provide fun, competition and the development of young players new to hockey. As a former manager I'm delighted to see the next generation of youngsters coming through; many of the players I saw at Animal Magic now play in our youth or senior teams, England Hockey Academies and u14s."

Well done to the Coyotes and the other teams for another tremendous year of Animal Magic.

Animal Magic is a small internal league for beginners of primary school age (usually around school year 3-6 / age 7-11), consisting of 6 teams, devised and governed by Chester Hockey Club and run, largely, by parents. The teams (Chipmunks, Chimps, Cobras, Condors, Coyotes & Crocs) play 7 aside games in a mini league at Chester Hockey Club during the Hockey Season (September – March) on Saturday’s 17:00 – 18:00.

It’s aims are to:
- Be fun
- Allow players to develop the skills and techniques taught at training
- Let players experience being part of a team sport
- Be fair, inclusive, safe, positive and competitive
