Hockey meet starts

ORGANISERS expect to see some future national reps in action at the Tuckers Ice Cream Secondary Schools Hockey Championships this weekend.

The tournament starts today and organisers anticipate stiff competition from all the teams that will participate.

Fiji Secondary Schools Hockey Association (FSSHA) president Immanuel Prasad said the competition was a way of bringing out the best in the players and exposing them to tough competition.

"During last year's tournament, the Fiji national U18 girls' team was selected," he said.

"Maybe some more future stars might shine during the tournament."

And the tournament received a major boost when sponsors increased their sponsorship in cash to $6000 and also donated in kind.

The sponsorship also includes attire for all executives of FSSHA, umpires, officials and volunteers.

Goodman Fielder general manager Chris Zaayman said the competition was a platform for students who may be looking at sporting careers and opportunities.

"I am sure the players would give it their best on the turf for their respective schools," he said.

The Super 8 National Finals and the Inter-District tournament would be held from today to Saturday at the National Hockey Turf.

The U19 Boys 11-a-side competition would be for the Bhasin Cup while the U19 Girls 11-a-side competition would be for the Westmere Trophy.

The Noal Cup would be up for grabs in the U16 Boys 11-a-side grade while the Sandys Trophy would be on the line in the U16 Girls 11-a-side grade.

For the Inter-District tournament, the boys would contest for the May Trophy while the girls would battle it out for the Sophia Raddock Trophy.
