GBRMG Hockey – Reef and Rainforest – Cairns Hockey reflects on highlighting our 2 world heritage sites located side by side.

We welcome GBRMG competitors to Cairns and a special welcome to those playing in the hockey competition. Every where you look across the Cairns region, the many shades of green, blue and gold are seen reflecting the Reef and Rainforest that surround us. It was a very easy choice to name the Cairns Hockey Turfs - Reef and Rainforest. The Reef Turf is closest to the Reef and the Rainforest Turf is closest to the Rainforest. No-where in the world is there 2 World Heritage listed areas next to each other - and no-where else in the world are these World Heritage listed areas aligned with an indigenous culture that can trace ancestors back 65,000 years. We are truly blessed and that is why Cairns Hockey has chosen to align its branding with the Reef and the Rainforest. As we host Great Barrier Reef Masters Games - we welcome our friends to the Reef and the Rainforest Turfs. Cairns Hockey is proud of our connection with the Reef and the Rainforest. We hope you enjoy your time with us ... [read more]

Cairns Hockey – Aspire to be Deadly $2 million funding boost announced

Warren Entsch announced this morning that the coalition government has committed $2 million to improve the health, wellbeing and opportunities for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and women from remote communities in Far North Queensland. The investment in Cairns Hockey, who operates the ‘Aspire to be Deadly’ project, will support young women to make positive life choices, and broaden their opportunities. “Warren’s continued support has enabled this increased funding which gives ‘Aspire to be Deadly’ the ability to expand the vision once again and allows us to deliver sustainable growth programs for the emerging leaders,” Dr Pozzi said. We also recognize that this opportunity is the culmination of many years of commitment in this space for Cairns Hockey – most of the current cairns hockey community is not completely aware of the long history and the leadership Cairns Hockey has around this program and we take the opportunity to thank those who were courageous all those years ago when an indigenous support program was just a conversation between Julie McNeil and the members of Cairns Hockey including Narelle Carroll, Nick Hardy, Diedre Ford, Garry West Bail, David McNeil, later supported by Murray Bain as GM of Cairns Hockey. Wes Ferns was the first development officer to work in this space in Queensland. We also must recognize the commitment and the support of current and previous Cairns Hockey Boards in particular former President Scott Brown when challenged on Cairns Hockey validity to be in this space back in 2015. It is an appropriate time to acknowledge everyone past and present who have been active in this program and has helped us to this place in time ... [read more]
