Rain spoils training

THE national under-18 hockey side is now searching for a suitable indoor venue to train.

The under-18 boys and girls teams are preparing for the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Oceania Qualifiers that will be held in Port Vila, Vanuatu, in March.

Coach Tai Smith said they had stopped training outdoors because of the bad weather conditions.

She said even though rain was good for the turf at the National Hockey Centre, they didn't want to risk their players getting sick because of the heavy rain.

"Also the frequent lightning is a big risk and we didn't want to put our players at risk," Smith said.

"So now we have to go indoors because we don't want to stop training and so we are looking for facilities where we can train."

She said all players are confirmed to travel to Vanuatu next Thursday and they were looking forward for the trip.

However, the team is still trying to raise funds for their spending in Vanuatu.

"We would really appreciate the support of the public, because something would be better than nothing.

"We would like for the players to be well looked after and taken care of in Vanuatu and so we would like to take our own spending money."
