secondary schools from Nadi and Lautoka will begin their local league hockey competition at the Nadovu grass turf this Saturday.

The schools will play under the Lautoka Hockey Association banner.

Association executive Martin Coffin said seven schools had confirmed their participation in the competition. Coffin said the local league would run for several weeks in the lead up to the National Secondary Schools Championship.

"The response from the schools is great," he said.

"Our schools from the Western Division have done well at the national championship and this local league will give them a lot of game time in preparation for that."

Natabua, Saint Thomas, Tilak, Jasper Williams and Swami Vivekananda are among the top contenders for the league title.

Meanwhile, the association will start its club games soon.
