CLOSE to 30 children took part in the week long Crest Chicken Children Hockey Program at the National Hockey Turf.
The program ended on Friday and Fiji Hockey Federation development officer Tai Smith said the response from the children was promising.
She said the kids showed a lot of potential and another week of clinic is likely to take place.
"We know it's the school holidays and we don't want the kids to be idle during the holidays so we organised this and it's good that we received good response from them," Smith said.
"So far these kids have been doing well and we see that there is a lot of talent out in them," she said.
She said the main purpose of the clinic was to teach the kids the basics of the sport.
"The basics are very important, so we taught them how to stop the ball, how to pass and run with the ball.
"These skills are really helpful in this sport and then we rotate the skills because kids learn very fast and then we also played small matches."
Smith said if children started at a young age and continued with the sport, they were likely to make a career out of them when they grow up.
"Look at Leevan Dutta for example, he started at a young age and played throughout and is now playing in Brisbane and he has come to assist with the clinic this week," Smith said.
"Some of the kids we had are as young as three years old and this is very promising for hockey in Fiji.
"If these kids or more want to take part in the program, then I will open the turf again next week from Monday."
