Swami Vivekananda College and Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College participated from Nadi.

Lautoka Secondary School Hockey Association president Makelesi Adireki-Mawi said the main purpose to hold the league competition was to give students more game time before the playoffs.

"The main purpose of the league is to give the students more game.

"Lautoka is the current holder of the secondary school's Inter-District Championship title in both the girls and boys divisions.
