Young hockey players promote healthy living

YOUNG FNC hockey players have teamed up with an important group to promote the importance of healthy living.

North Coast Medicare Local has provided training singlets and equipment to the region's under-13 sides ahead of their upcoming respective state championship campaigns.

The singlets will promote the group's new online Healthy North Coast service, which aims to help highlight the message of nutrition, exercise and better lifestyle.

North Coast Medicare Local chief executive officer Vahid Saeri said he hoped people of all ages would benefit from the website's advice.

"It's been set up to support everyone in getting healthy and staying healthy," he said.

"It allows the community to access information and tools to make positive lifestyle decisions, as well as contribute to better health for all.

"Healthy North Coast is all about health. It contains reliable and up-to-date health information that can be used locally.

"Whether someone wants tips on healthy eating, where to find their local gym, or how to access a health professional or health service, Healthy North Coast is the place to go."

As well as the singlets, the service has also given drink bottles to the players ahead of their forthcoming competitions.

The girls will play Division Two at the state titles from July 4-7, with the boys in Division One a week later.

Both competitions aim to further showcase the talents of promising young players from across the state.
