Black Sticks player and Olympian Anita Punt (McLaren) will hold training sessions in Southland next week.
One-hour training sessions will be held on Wednesday, July 19, at Gore Hockey Turf, Wayland St, from 12.30pm to 5pm, and on Thursday, July 20, in Invercargill at the ILT Hockey Turf on Camden St from 9am to 1.30pm.
Hockey Southland board member Tony Mennell said this was a great opportunity to learn how to play from a professional.
“You don’t get the chance to play hockey with an Olympian athlete every day.”
The price for a one-hour training session is $20 per player, which includes a photo with Punt and question-and-answer session included.
