The Rock­e­fellers will use the Va­lerie Daveta Me­mo­rial Tour­na­ment as a build up for their young play­ers. The team which was formed in 2014 is the cham­pion team from the west­ern di­vi­sion. Team cap­tain Mar­cus Hicks said the ex­po­sure of their young play­ers is im­por­tant as the hockey is a real eye opener for them. “In Lautoka we are used to play­ing hockey on grass but the turf at Na­tional Hockey Cen­tre is dif­fer­ent and good for the boys,” Hicks said. “Most of the play­ers are stu­dents and we want to grow the in­ter­est and bring in more play­ers to tour­na­ments such as this one in fu­ture. The Va­lerie Daveta Me­mo­rial Tour­na­ment will fin­ish to­day.
