The defending champions are lying fifth on the log after winning only one match last weekend and they have taken the week to regroup as they chase a spot in the top four.
There will be three more rounds of matches before the play-offs take place on Monday.
Following last weekend’s results in Stellenbosch, Le Roux said they had had a chance to reflect on their performances.
“Due the format of the competition the break gives you a chance for reflection,” she said.
“There are possibly four teams so far showing top-four status, but this can change at any stage due to the nature of sport.”
Maties are on top with 12 points, followed by UP-Tuks, Wits and NWU-Pukke on nine points apiece. UJ, NMMU-Madibaz and Free State are all grouped on three points.
Despite the defeats, Le Roux said they were positive and determined to keep on believing in themselves.
“We don’t want to give away anything in terms of our strategy, but we are ready to make a big effort.”
The UJ hockey manager said the standard of women’s hockey had risen because of events such as Varsity Hockey and the Premier Hockey League.
“Playing the sport at every level gives you so much more exposure and players pick up invaluable game time,” she added.
“These sorts of competitions increase the chances for the girls to develop in a competitive environment.”
