Brent's back

OLYMPIC hockey player, and arguably Grafton's greatest ever sporting product, Brent Livermore will be back in town next week to develop the skills of our next generation of young stars.

Livermore comes home to the Clarence Valley a number of times each the year to host his school holiday hockey clinics aimed at developing players of all ages and abilities.

"Brent divides his day into three sessions for people of all different skill levels," Grafton Hockey executive officer Bruce Carle said.

"We hold a club session for players of all ages and abilities, a representative session for our rep players and an academy session for our most talented juniors."

The clinics will be held on Monday and Tuesday next week. Sessions start at 9am for club players, 11am for representative and 2pm for Academy players.

The program focuses on skill development, including tackling, goal shooting and set-piece development.

Cost is $55 per player and to get involved players can email admin@graftonhockey.net.au and register 30 minutes before their session starts.
