2017 Funsticks Programme

The Fun Sticks Hockey Programme is aimed at any "new" hockey players, generally in Years 1 and 2 at school.

The programme is not just hockey focussed, each hour long session contains fundamental movement skills, both with and without hockey sticks. We understand that young children's attention spans aren't too long, so we spend 8 to 10 minutes mastering different activities, before playing a game. The programme is 10 weeks long, and the children really improve in this time!

Otago Hockey provides the sticks and lighter hockey balls for Fun Sticks. Some parents prefer to purchase their children their own stick, as well as shin pads and mouthguard. These can be purchased at the McMillan Hockey Centre, or at any good sports shop.


Tory Dougherty, Otago Hockey’s Coaching Manager, will be looking after Fun Sticks this year. You can contact her at or 03 474 9201.
