Hockey festivals will become a feature in key regional areas around Western Australia for years to come thanks to the broadening of a partnership between Hockey WA and CSBP Fertilisers.
Through CSBP’s support, clinics and carnivals featuring high-profile players and coaches will be held in five regional hubs to provide hockey-related attractions for all members of the community.
The CSBP Festivals, to be held in each of the next three years, will be held in Narrogin, Northam, Bruce Rock, Geraldton and Albany, with the exact timing and locations of each Festival in 2022 to be announced in coming weeks.
“We are incredibly excited about taking high-quality hockey coaches and high-profile players to regional areas,” Hockey WA CEO Fabian Ross said.
“The CSBP Festivals, to be held in the five hockey-loving regional communities of Narrogin, Northam, Bruce Rock, Geraldton and Albany, will provide wonderful opportunities for young children in particular to pick up a stick, play hockey and learn skills from some of our state’s best.
“We’re very grateful for CSBP’s support and can’t wait to see the growth of the calendar of activities over the next three years.”
CSBP Fertilisers General Manager Mark Scatena said that CSBP was delighted to be extending its partnership with Hockey WA.
“Hockey is an inclusive community sport which is played all across Western Australia and allows people of all ages and genders to get involved,” Mr Scatena said. “We’ve seen the enjoyment these hockey events can bring to our regional communities and we’re very excited to provide more opportunities for people to come together to learn and play hockey over the years to come.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring key hockey figures from across Western Australia to the CSBP Festivals. Their presence will bring an added level of excitement which we hope will encourage people to take up hockey and develop new skills in fun and engaging events.”
