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

Shayne_clipped_rev_1.jpg

Shayne Monahan's involvement with our club juniors began a few years ago and has been unwavering since. Whether it's organising the club's Hookin2 Hockey programme, mentoring our junior facilitators or coaching the U11's team; his contribution and dedication was always resolute, genuine and progressive.

Shayne’s work ensures the growth of our nippers and with that; the future of our club.

Senior Club Person

SusanP.jpg

Susan Pickersgill's involvement with the club was two-fold; her treasury and her team manager roles.

In the three years as treasurer, Susan has managed to turn the club's dwindling financial state into one of strength moving into the future. As part of the team integral to forging the club's current financial strategies Susan's diligence in tracking, pursuing and ensuring that all club financial matters are dealt with in a timely and 'as promised' manner is highly commendable. The club now benefits from a financial position never experienced in a long while.

Susan also manages the SL1W team and she has been doing this over the last 4 years. During this time the team often struggled for players and consequently competitively. Yet, Susan persevered each year; nominating SL1W and ensuring a team is fielded each week in hope to boost interest and encourage player retention.

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 Ruihana SL1W, Cate SL3W, Thomas SL2M, Lachlan SL3M and Kristan SL4M.

Usually, it’s only a few points between contenders however the verdict was very clear this year. He joined QUHC mid-season and the supposedly one-of fill-in got the club buzzing. The rest is poetic history; played 8 games, scored 18 goals and assisted in countless more - Kristan Jobe.
