Hockey plans for U18 team

THE Fiji Hockey Federation is trying to work out how to best satisfy the educational needs of the players of the national girls under-18 team which is preparing for the Youth Olympic Games in China in August.

FHF president Dr Robin Mitchell said nearly all the players in the team are secondary school students and might face disruptions with their studies.

He said the teams that went to Port Villa in Vanuatu to participate in the YOG qualification tournament earlier this month were made up of students from Ovalau, Lautoka, Nadi and Suva.

"All except one of our team members are secondary school students, so we will have to make an assessment of who will be available to travel to Nanjing in August which is quite close to important exams for those in Form 6 and 7," Dr Mitchell said.

"They will have to make a decision as to whether they can continue to train for the next five months as well as be away from school for at least two weeks during the YOG," he said
