THE revival of hockey in the Old Capital of Levuka was given a major boost when the Fiji Hockey Federation donated equipment to St John's College Cawaci.

The equipment was donated to the Federation by the International Hockey Federation for development work in the country.

FHF development officer Tai Smith has been travelling around the country donating equipment to schools and also conducting hockey clinics.

"St John's College Cawaci has a proud hockey history in the school competition and they were former Westmere champions," she said.

"In 1979, student Tupou Vosita now Mrs Nawalu, donned the national colours to represent Fiji at the World Cup in Canada.

"Current student Adi Wainikiti Mateiwai Naselesele was the successful vice-captain to the Youth Olympic qualifiers in Vanuatu and is a strong contender to retain her position to the Olympic Youth Games in Nanjing in August."

Smith said the Fiji U18 girls team to the YOG is an indication of the potential in the youths.

"Supporting schools will be Fiji Hockey's priority as we work for resurgence in our sport.

"The youth will be the answer to this."
