Kids give it stick at clin­ics

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

PRO­FES­SIONAL hockey play­ers joined ju­niors at the new War­wick Hockey Cen­tre dur­ing the school hol­i­days.

Re­cently re­tired Kook­aburra and five-time In­ter­na­tional Player of the Year Jamie Dwyer, who has set up a mer­chan­dise store at the fa­cil­ity, ran three clin­ics for Hockey WA ju­niors aged six to 14.

Dwyer said it had been “bet­ter than ex­pected”. “It was pretty late no­tice when I an­nounced them, so I thought we’d get maybe 10, 15, 20 kids max but we had 50 kids come down each day,” he said. “We had some Kookaburras and Hock­ey­roos come down and I also took down my Olympic gold medal and World Cup medal and the kids loved it.”

The City of Joondalup, along with Hockey WA and Whit­ford Hockey Club, will open the cen­tre on July 2.
