GAME OF THE WEEKEND – LAST GAME UNDER 13 GOLD -V- MACKAY – the images of our young boys all playing together, committed and passionate, all trying their best, their passion and resolve to the very last second. It showed everything positive and what is good about junior sport, the well-being through involvement in physical activity, the support each player gave each other, the respect everyone had for each other and themselves – it was fast paced, exciting and a real nail biter with the result not known until the very last minute. I am sure if more young boys in Cairns would see what a great opportunity hockey offers them, we would increase our numbers. Congratulations to all involved
Each of our teams should be congratulated. EVERYONE is Cairns Hockey should be very proud of these teams.
The feedback was fantastic and we thank all the parents and family, the volunteer coaches, managers and umpires, our CHA staff for supporting the teams and engaging Mackay and Townsville to plan for the future. We will certainly include this inter- city in the Cairns Calendar for 2018
