Hockey moves North

THE Fiji Hockey Federation is confident the sport will prosper in the Northern Division.

Federation development officer Tai Smith went to Labasa early this week to spread the hockey gospel.

She said the initiative was made possible through a grant from the Australian Sports Program.

"Teachers from St Mary's Primary School, Holy Family primary and secondary schools, Labasa Primary School and Labasa Sangam Primary School took part in the Oceania Sports Education Program facilitated by Albert Miller," Smith said.

"The teachers responded well to the course and were extremely eager to take on hockey in their schools.

"The abbreviated code of hockey — 5s hockey — has been suggested as the way to start the game with a view to moving on to the full 11-a-side game."

Smith said all participating schools were given 12 sticks and a ball to get the game going.

She said the interest was there and all it needed was a push in the right direction.
