Hockey is family friendly and these introductory programs will provide opportunities for the whole family to become involved through volunteer roles that ensure the programs sustainable success.

When a young boy or girl has their initial cub experience with Hockey it is important that in addition to  learning the game of Hockey they also have the opportunity to develop life skills. Hookin2Hockey gives young people the opportunity to begin a lifelong journey with the iconic Olympic Sport of Hockey. It is a game that is actively played by participants as young as 5, both males and females, demonstrating that Hockey is truly  a family sport.



Play Hockey in Cairns invites the family into the hockey community of Cairns and welcomes the young participants as well as the families to a new club community.

– The new hockey skills you learn through a fun and modified program of engaging small sided games at a local level is the first step that could take you all the way to the Olympics.

– The  skills taught are safe with no requirement to raise your stick higher than knee height.

– INTERACTIVE activities assist learning in a fun space so as we can maximize enjoyment and increase the amount of children’s’ physical activity, making them healthier, and increasing their involvement.

– SIMPLE sessions with lots of room to make learning easier.

– PLAYING  GAMES A PRIORITY – its what helps  young people learn to love the game! Games RULE It’s more fun that way!!
