THE Lautoka Hockey Association will start its season today after teams failed to turn up over the past few weekends.

The tournament to be played at Nadovu Park will feature six teams in the men's division and four teams in the women's division.

The tournament will serve as the build-up to the State of Origin competition in Lautoka next week.

Association executive Martin Coffin said all the teams had confirmed participation in the tournament.

Coffin said the clubs needed to pay $100 affiliation fees.

"All the senior and junior players will have to register with the association," he said.

"The senior players will have to pay $20 while the junior players will have to pay $10.

"There will be entry fee charged for the spectators. It is $1 for adults and 50 cents for children."

Ba's Naidrodro and Falcons are the top teams in the men's division.

Blue Star and Tokalau are the favourites in the women's division.

"The men's teams have been drawn in two pools," Coffin said.

"The women's teams will play a round robin competition. Falcons are the new team in the women's division.

"The teams will be allocated points after every tournament."

Matches will start at 12pm. Men's: Pool A: Blue Star, Falcons, Naidrodro; Pool B: Mates, Rockefellers, Topline. Women's: Marist, Tokalau, Blue Star, Falcons.
