Any sport worth playing offers a way in at the grassroots level, especially for children.
The international sport of hockey is no different.
The HookIn2Hockey program for junior players is similar in principal to football’s Auskick and cricket’s Milo Have a Go.
“Hookin2Hockey is designed for boys and girls aged 10 and under, but the skills can be modified to suit players of any age” their spokesperson said in a statement.
If you’re interested, Hockey ACT has made arrangements for these junior-oriented sessions to start on October 17.
To cater to differing skill levels, the program has been separated into three parts, and they’re are all self-explanatory.
First up there’s Come and Try for newbies.
Next there’s Skills in Action for further development.
Then for those who are ready for it, there’s Game On!
“This program structure has been developed to help participants step through their hockey journey.”
The idea is that beginner players can then progress to the next level as their skills improve.
Hockey offers all the benefits you’d expect children to get from taking up a new team sport.
“Hookin2Hockey gives young boys and girls the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey, develop fundamental motor skills and make friends all while beginning their lifelong love of hockey.”
