Play Hockey in Cairns in 2019 Program is based on the national Hook in2 Hockey participation program, aimed at getting new people to the sport that have little or no hockey experience.
This introduction to hockey program is affordable. exciting and a fun way for a junior beginner to be introduced and learn new skills. The program is designed for boys and girls aged five and over, and allows these younger children to get to know the game of hockey through an organised and structured game-based program that is both safe and fun. Cairns Hockey operations manager Julie McNeil says: “This introductory format is perfect for young people looking to play a game that’s safe and fun.” “The whole program is about creating an environment for families – to play at the same time and same place each week, parents have a place to relax on a Friday afternoon and the kids learn basic skills that assist in encouraging smiles and laughter.
“Hockey is a real family-friendly sport in Cairns and here is an opportunity for the whole family to be involved.”
“As well as learning the basic game skills. young people advance their fundamental motor skills and teaches them what it’s like to be part of a team and support each other. “This can be the beginning of a wonderful and exciting involvement in a lifc – long sport.” Hockey is actively played by participants as young as five,
genders and all abilities are catered for in these programs. It’s family-friendly and family fun, from social programs, indoor hockey options and a fantastic annual program from mid-March through to early September in each year. Cairns Hockey is about to complete a $2.7 million upgrade of their facility ready for the 2019 season where family first priorities have been included in all stages of design.
These improvements support an association that is progressive innovative and modern in its approach to community and
support. “It is driven through a balance employed and volunteer workforce, its direction is driven through a board comprising a balance of those who know the game and those who can assist the game across the Cairns region,” McNeil says. “They are parents who believe in community which is a great asset.
“Hockey in Cairns is a strong community with over 90 years of tradition in the region using the sport of hockey to drive positive health and wellbeing outcomes, supporting education and training and building individual and team capacity. “It supports strong local and regional programs and the Talent Pathways Program is one of the strongest in the state.” Cairns Hockey has international. national and state recognised players. coaches and officials involved in the game; it also supports the Cairns Regional Hockey Academy, which is soon to be advanced to align with national and international opportunities, it is a great choice to start your sporting journey.
