THE Lautoka Hockey Association will begin its 2014 season with a tournament at Nadovu Park today.

A total of ten teams will play in the event.

The men's teams have been divided into two pools while the women's will play in a round robin format.

Association executive Martin Coffin said they had opted to hold tournaments as part of its weekly competition.

Coffin said this would generate more interest among the players.

"A tournament will be held every week and the finals will be played to determine the winners," he said.

"The aim is to increase the number of hockey players this season. We have already got the secondaey schools under our banner and this will certainly boost our development.

"Also the selectors will be identifying players for the first State of Origin that will be held in Lautoka at the end of next month."

Blue Star heads the men's Pool One with Falcons and Rebels Two. Pool Two has Mates, Rockefellers and Rebels One. Marist, Tokalau, Rebels One and Rebels Two will feature in the women's division.

The secondary schools competition will start at 8am while senior competition will start at 12.30pm.
