HistoryEdit

Hockey in the city of Qormi dates back to the 1970s.

A teacher at the then Ġużé Galea Secondary School, in San Ġorġ, Joseph Kerr, called Chossie (or Ċossi), formed a hockey team made up of students. Kerr acted as the first coach.

The sport developed beyond the school; a society was formed. It had dire beginnings, as the club had to meet in a garage or cellar. Eventually, the club built its own complex, including a hockey pitch. The pitch has a synthetic turf surface.[1]

NurseryEdit

The club operates an academy to nurse young players. Teams of Under 11, Under14 and Under 17 are fielded.[2]

Kit EvolutionEdit

Similar to other sport teams in Qormi, the team dons yellow and black strips. An alternative colour is the club's traditional green.
