2017
Franchise of the Year: Section A: Cape Seals
Franchise of the Year: Section B: Peninsula Sharks

After the epic and unmatched opening ceremony that welcomed PSi Nationals into existence, you may have been forgiven for thinking that it would be hard to follow that up with the hockey that was played. You would have been wrong.

In the soaring heat of Cape Town 124 teams, up from an already impressive 83 teams in the U13/14 Nationals in 2016, took each other on in a quest to win their respective titles and get their hands on the overall Franchise of the Year.

It’s hard to believe that 400 odd games of hockey have came and went in the space of a week. The PSi home court of UCT was abuzz with hundreds of kids and more than 1000 supporters daily.

The Cape Seals showed a resurgence in the A Sections this year making three of the four finals at the senior nationals and they will be incredibly happy with the home Franchises performance over the four days.

PSi took another step into a brave new world. That step was to move away from the traditional PSi All Stars vs. South Africa match and the introduction of the PSi Showdowns. It’s going to be South Africa vs. The International All Stars vs. The World All Stars.

Each night will featured a PSi Showdowns competition with a winner at the end of the Night. After the three matches the top two teams will competed in a three man shootout to determine the winner.

On the Final night it was the International All Stars who came out on top!
