Dapto Hockey Club is promoting hockey to kids of all ages and skill level following a successful Come and Try Day at the Illawarra Hockey Stadium.
Dapto Junior Hockey Club.
Around 40 kids put on their shin guards and got their hockey sticks cracking in a development day to showcase the basics of a sport in which Australia is a dominant force.
Many of the children were trying out hockey for the first time while others enjoyed the fun clinic ahead of the new Illawarra junior season which starts on March 23.
Parents and kids alike enjoyed a sausage sandwich and a cool drink at the clinic and all kids received a sample bag and a small prize for their attendance on the day.
Boys and girls as young as four or five can begin playing hockey in the Illawarra under-seven Minkeys competition.
Junior comps continue in under 11s, 13s, 15s and 17s with contact details for all Illawarra clubs available through www.ihockey南京夜网.au.
Anyone interested in joining Dapto Junior Hockey Club can contact Brad Boon on 0439 727 577 or email [email protected]南京夜网.au.
Illawarra boasts some of Australia’s best hockey players including Hockeyroo Casey Eastham and the Kookaburras’ Kieran Govers.
Dapto Hockey Club has hosted an annual Come and Try clinic for several years as a way of introducing the sport to new players across the region.
