Junior hockey stars rewarded

10 December 2018 | Sports

The Namibian Hockey Union (NHU) recently hosted the 2018 Bank Windhoek Junior Hockey Development League awards ceremony where medals were awarded to the age groups 10, 12 and 14 in both the boys and the girls A and B divisions.

The league began in June and concluded in mid-August, recording the participation of 95 teams from ten schools.

“The Bank Windhoek Development League is an NHU development programme that aims to develop the sport in Namibia by educating and grooming talented young players,” said Bank Windhoek's Hayley Allen. “Despite challenges like a lack of resources for some schools, the league continues to grow.”

According to the NHU's vice president, Conrad Wessels, through the partnership with Bank Windhoek, the NHU is in the process of reintroducing hockey to the schools and regions that have stopped playing due to a lack of equipment and coaches. “This partnership started in 2015 and so far, nine coaching clinics for coaches and children took place in seven regions.”
