Details: Hookin2Hockey, the national junior development program designed by Hockey Australia.
Hookin2Hockey is designed for boys and girls aged 10 and under, but the skills can be modified to suit players of any age.
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.
This program structure has been developed to help participants step through their hockey journey.
This is the first experience most children will have with hockey. It is an action packed, fun filled one-hour session that will show participants how exciting hockey can be through a number of simple, yet engaging games.
The games involved are not limited at all by age – children or adults will be able to find enjoyment and challenge as they develop their ability to play the game, work as a team, and make new friends through hockey.
We believe that Hookin2Hockey will introduce new players to a game that provides fun, friendship, and a lifelong love of an iconic Olympic sport, in a club/association based environment.
The six-week program will teach participants the basic skills giving them the opportunity to not only fall in love with our game, but providing them with a dream that one day they can represent Australia, whose teams are among the world’s best, at the highest level, the Olympic Games.
