STRENGTH IN UNITY

History

Queanbeyan United Hockey Club Inc. (QUHC) formed in 2000 from an amalgamation of the Queanbeyan Rebels Hockey Club and the Queanbeyan Hockey Club Junior Girls. The name Queanbeyan United was selected to signify the union of the two former Queanbeyan clubs with a new playing uniform encompassing the colours of both clubs.

In 2016 amalgamation of our club and the Queanbeyan Hockey Club (Men’s) eventuated. This transpired from two years of trials which produced two consecutive premiership seasons for the teams involved. Queanbeyan city has finally consolidated with one hockey club, strength in unity moving into the future.

Mission Statement

The Queanbeyan United Hockey Club Inc. seeks to promote a healthy and active lifestyle by providing an opportunity for the Community in the Queanbeyan District to participate in a well run, cost effective and enjoyable team sport.

Logo Description

From a club identity perspective, the arcs on the logo illustration symbolises a Q and U. It's colours coincide with the colours of the words Queanbeyan and United respectively. The solid circle at the centre represents QUHC as an entity complete in strength and unity.

From a club logo perspective, the arcs symbolise hockey sticks and the two colours represent opposing teams. The solid circle in this viewpoint represents a hockey ball, being played at by the two teams. The ball, as customary is supplied by one of the teams hence it's colour is similar to one of the arcs.

The colours used on the logo represent the official club colours of the Queanbeyan United Hockey Club Inc.

 
 

Social Media

As the QUHC began embracing the potential of social media influences on advertising and information distribution we discovered that a new logo design was needed that would blend effectively with this medium. This arrived around the time when the Queanbeyan United and Queanbeyan Men's Hockey Club unified; hence our social media logo reflects the attributes of the new coalition.

The three stars represent the original two clubs of the QUHC and its new union. The ‘QU’ eroded font look represents the turbulent journeys of past seasons the club had endured and the tag line conveys our creed. Sky blue and white are our primary colours and the maroon and navy blue backgrounds are the embellishment colours of all clubs in the alliance.

Junior Club Person

Rachel Howden became involved with the QUHC HIN2H programme late in 2017 as head coach and continued in that role in 2018. Her involvement has been the catalyst for a very successful 2018 HIN2H season.

The HIN2H kids enjoy Rachel's enthusiasm, her skill and sense of fun and under her care they have blossomed into confident young hockey players.

Rachel continues to provide the HIN2H kids with a firm base with which to grow their hockey careers upon and her dynamism and determination with the programme is sincerely appreciated.

Senior Club Person

Shayne Monahan's work across the grades for men and women in seniors is simply outstanding. He devotes much of his time throughout the week coaching seniors as well as juniors and is always available on weekends (both days). Shayne missed a handful of weekends throughout the season only to attend other hockey related events interstate. 

Shayne's coaching may seem confronting to the uninitiated but players soon recognise that the information being conveyed is sagacious and their relationships strengthen as the season progresses. 2018 season results are testimony to his efforts with SL1W finishing 7th (great improvement from last season's 12th) and SL2M finishing as minor premiers (improvement from last season's 2nd). 

Shayne's contribution to club matters as a committee member is also to be commended. His communication concise, suggestions noteworthy and is always ahead in mindset when providing planning concepts. We are thankful for Shayne's association with and influence on our club.

Club Hot Shot

The club’s hot shot perpetual trophy is awarded based on goals and games played percentage. All team hot shot recipients are eligible and this year they include Grace SL1W, Nicola SL3W, Thomas SL2M, Kris SL3M and Greg SL4M.

Unlike last season it was down to a few percentage points between contenders this year. He joined QUHC mid-season and soon proved his worth with lethal and acurate shots at goals; played 11 games, scored 17 goals and assisted in countless more - Greg Lockett.
