Sunny Stars provides an inviting fun environment in which children can discover and enjoy the skills of the great international sport of hockey. It is played on a Friday night at Ballinger in a round robin style competition.

The underlying philosopy is consistent with the growing enlightened attitude that organised sport has far reaching benefits when it is structured to meet the needs of children. Hook into Hockey is designed to:

  • Increase levels of physical fitness and well-being
  • Provide a sense of achievement through the progressive acquisition of skills;
  • Encourage and teach healthy attitudes to desirable codes of behaviour through co-operating and competing with opponents;
  • Provide an appreciation of the fun, satisfaction and relaxation that can be derived from physical activity; and
  • Provide a positive attitude to more active energetic lifestyles.
  • Rough and dangerous play is banned and body contact discouraged by coaching players to adopt safe correct techniques.
