Academy’s search for top hockey talent

NORTH Coast Academy of Sport will launch its 2009-10 hockey program in Lismore this weekend and will be inducting 34 of the most talented North Coast juniors into the squad.

The off-season program aims to identify the best 14- to 16-year-old male and female players in the region and to provide them with a program that focuses on skill and fitness development.

Hockey has been an Academy-endorsed program since 2002. The program is endorsed and supported by Hockey NSW and the NSW Institute of Sport, which regard the North Coast Academy program as a stepping stone between regional and higher selections.

A key feature of the program is most activities are conducted locally on the North Coast.

Local players in the squad of 17 girls and 17 boys include:

Marli Hope (Knockrow), Georgia Hunter (Ballina), Jenna Lidbetter (Alstonville), Brooke Riley (Lismore), Sarah Wykes (East Lismore), Cameron Britt (Coraki), Zac Clark (Evans Head), Markus Currie (Dunoon), Jacob Dunn (Casino), Alexander McKendrick (Evans Head), Mitchell Scotcher (Coraki) and Danny Seymour (East Lismore).
