Waikiki boy in Floor­ball Open

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

LUKE Posik (13) never imag­ined a trip to the Rock­ing­ham Shop­ping Cen­tre would re­sult in him play­ing in the Ju­nior Aus­tralian Floor­ball Open in Vic­to­ria this July.

Floor­ball is of Scan­di­na­vian ori­gin and is played on a wooden floor with a stick and a ball.

It is sim­i­lar to hockey and has five play­ers and a goal­keeper in a team.

The Waikiki teen’s po­si­tion is goal­keeper.

He has played the game for three years for the Scor­pi­ons, who prac­tise at the Mike Bar­nett Sports Com­plex.

As there is no ju­nior team, he has been play­ing along­side se­nior play­ers and is ex­cited over his in­ter­state de­but.

“We go to Pak­en­ham in Vic­to­ria where I’ll play in the 2018 Ju­nior Floor­ball Open,” he said. “There will be a sports dis­play too; yeah, I’m ex­cited.”

In­ter­na­tional and Aus­tralian teams will com­pete at the event on July 11.
