On the heels of the Rio Olympics, Hockey New Zealand is running a Hockey Have a Go day at associations around the country tomorrow.

Tauranga Hockey Association will host the day at Kawaka St, Mount Maunganui from 11am to 3pm, providing skill sessions and fun games for the whole family to enjoy.

Everyone who registers will go in a draw to win a Golden Stick signed by Tauranga Black Sticks player Rose Keddell.

Other giveaways include Black Sticks bags, socks, Just Hockey vouchers, Tasty Pot vouchers, mouthguards, posters, wristbands and more.


Other associations running the day are Northland, North Harbour, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki, Hawke's Bay, Poverty Bay, Nelson and Marlborough.

Black Sticks and New Zealand development squad players will be participating at selected events to provide some coaching and to share their experiences.

The Have a Go day is hoped to build on the strong growth seen through the Small Sticks programme while the production of summer hockey fives and renegade formats has seen the game grow and appeal to a broad audience of ages and backgrounds.

Games and skills modules will run throughout the day to cater for all ages and skill levels.
Events require no previous experience and equipment is provided.
