Qormi Hockey Club

History

Joseph “Chossie” Kerr with the first Qormi HC team

Qormi Hockey Club was founded in 1971 when a group of students from Guze’ Galea secondary  school  in Qormi  started  playing Hockey under coach and then teacher “Chossie” Kerr.  40 years have passed and Hockey is still being played and now it is one of the main sports disciplines in Qormi.

At the beginning it was very difficult.  Young players used to meet in a garage or in a cellar of Qormi F.C. until the club settled in the Manwel Dimech Sports Complex where at present we have good facilities to practice our sport.  It is of great satisfaction for our club to announce that it is the first Hockey Club in Malta to own a synthetic pitch.  This has been our ambition for a long time.

Qormi Hockey Club is an active member in the Hockey  Association of Malta.  Some seasons ago our Chairman Mr.Joseph Grech, served the last 6 years as Chairman of the Association as well.  Our club takes part in every competition organised by the  HAM including a Senior team, a Reserves team and Junior teams in U-12 and U-14 and U-16.

Recently, the Club undertook a new challenge when it took part in European competitions for clubs.  In 2008 and 2009 the Greens took part in the Euro Hockey Challenge III which was held in Bratislava.
