The friendliest and most fun team, that is, of course, Damesch 7eeven! We are fanatic during training and games. Everyone has their level of hockey. This level varies from experienced fanatic players to being fanatic to win during the third half. In our team fun, team spirit and laughing are central.
On Wednesday evening from 18.00 to 19.30, our training is given by our permanent trainer Han, who has been with us for two times 7eeven years. During the training, there is a lot of laughter, but we also try to be serious. Of course, Han often tries to teach us some hockey skills during the training. After the training, we eat together in the Toren or during nice weather outside where we definitely will be drinking a cold beer.
On Sunday, during a match, we try to put Wednesday’s activities into practice, against all kinds of clubs from the region. Under the supervision of our coaches Thomas and Steven, who try to give structure to our team, we play a fanatical game. Our tactic often consists of confusing the opponent because we all wear the same number, namely 7eeven! After a fanatical match in which we have used all of our energy, we recharge with a joint lunch. After lunch, we will support the other teams of DHC along the field with a full ‘bier plank’ (beer shelf?), also called the ‘7eevenmeter’.
Besides hockey, we also have our traditions. Every December/January we have our annual date-dinner, from which the best stories arise! Curious? Come and join us at the bar and we will tell you about them! Every year we also have our ‘Dies’ on the seventh of July (7-7) which is celebrated with dinner and a drink. Additionally, spontaneous drinks are no exception to our team.
Damesch 7eeven is a team which is more than hockey only! If you have experience or no experience with regards to hockey, everyone is welcome! If you want to join a training, mail us at dames7[at]dchdrienerlo[punt]nl or send us a message on Instagram @dhcdamesch7.
‘7eeven voor allen, allen voor 7eeven!’
