Grafton prove a hit at hockey camp

SEVEN hockey girls were selected to represent Grafton in an exclusive under-13 development camp in Sydney.

The clinic ran from Tuesday, April 6 to Thursday, April 8 at the Sydney Olympic Park. More than 120 girls were invited throughout the state.

In the morning the clinic was an intensive camp where the girls learnt new skills for more than three hours, followed by half and full-field games for the following four hours in the afternoon.

The evenings were filled with evaluations, feedback, watching DVDs and team bonding. At the end of the camp each girl was given a player profile report from their individual coach. The girls all enjoyed the clinic and are keen to go back next year.

Haylee Gough was particularly impressed with the setup.

“The camp was so awesome,” she said.

“We learnt heaps of new skills. Even though it was really exhausting it was lots of fun.

“We all got to meet heaps of new girls from other towns. We were all really proud to be selected to represent Grafton.”
