STINGERS hockey club celebrated its seventh anniversary in Lami yesterday.

The club that started with just seven boys is now the largest playing member club in Fiji.

Club coach Shaun Corrie said for the club development was always the focus.

"Initially our vision and our goals are development," he said.

"We want to develop our players to assist and develop the sport in Fiji and not only develop the sporting side for the players but also life values, honesty, discipline, teamwork and family.

"It's that important to us and that is why you can see a lot of our family members and friends are always supporting our team."

"We would like to thank our family and friends for their children because they're the backbone of our team."

Corrie said of their biggest challenge was finance.

"When we started we didn't have much," he said.

"We didn't have the kind of money to buy gear and equipments for the club because most of our players are either unemployed or still schooling."

Corrie added their biggest achievement was winning the Suva league against the number one team in the country, Ventures.

The hockey club now has two men's, women's and a mixed hockey team.
