Les­son to the world

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

COMO Sec­ondary Col­lege Hockey Acad­emy is call­ing out for peo­ple to join a Guin­ness World Record at­tempt for the big­gest hockey les­son.

The event is open to peo­ple of all ages and no prior ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired for the at­tempt that will take place at Perry Lakes on Au­gust 19.

The cur­rent record was set by a school in the UK which at­tracted 509 par­tic­i­pants, but Como Hockey Acad­emy are hope­ful they will be able to smash that.

Event or­gan­iser and acad­emy par­ent helper Jane Scott said she saw an­other or­gan­i­sa­tion do­ing a record at­tempt and so she searched it on Google and thought they could do it.

“There’s plenty of hockey world records out there but this one is do-able,” she said.

“It also al­lows us to get the kids in­volved in the les­son and the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the event.

“The re­ac­tion we’ve had so far has been ex­tremely pos­i­tive and ex­cit­ing.”

On­line reg­is­tra­tion is avail­able prior to the event, or peo­ple can reg­is­ter on the day.

There will be prizes to be won, and op­por­tu­ni­ties to score au­to­graphs from high-pro­file play­ers.
