Our 2022 CSBP Hockey Festivals kicked-off in June, with Narrogin and Geraldton playing host to the first festivals for the year.

School children between grades four and six participated in the festivals and competed in a series of seven-a-side hockey games across the one-day events.

Many had also been part of Hockey WA clinics in the lead-up to the festivals to help them learn or brush-up on their hockey skills. 

WAIS, Perth Thundersticks and Westside Wolfpack player Alastair Murray joined the fun at our Narrogin festival, dropping by to provide some coaching advice, meet participants, and demonstrate his hockey skills.

St Matthew’s School was the winning team at Narrogin, while Geraldton Primary won the day in Geraldton. Our local CSBP team members were on hand to congratulate participants and award prizes to the winning teams.

Our partnership with Hockey WA began last year and was extended for a further three years in December. The partnership will see us work with Hockey WA to deliver five hockey festivals and related activities across regional Western Australia in 2022, 2023 and 2024. 

Three more CSBP hockey festivals are due to be held in the third school term this year, in Northam, Bruce Rock and the Great Southern. Stay tuned for dates and further details.
