Pikinini Hockey program

Number of interested hockey participants doubles

This morning, the number of participants doubled from last week’s.

The 10-week program has entered its fourth weekend today, with children set into groups.

Advanced learners were put into one group while beginners who just joined today were placed in another.

One of the Minkey program facilitators and coach, Edmund Tapo, told Loop PNG that the key focus of the program and development is to teach children core skills such as passing, receiving and ball carrying (dribbling). These skills can be taught in isolation then put into a game situation.
