Kiwi Sticks is open to a range of abilities from introductory level players that are new to hockey and those players who are familiar with hockey and have an understanding of the game. The competition will host a 6-a-side, third-field format with 20 minute halves. The focus of the competition will see an introduction to playing positions for and positional concepts. We strongly encourage rotation of playing positions for all players. This encourages development of different, transferable skills and conceptual understanding across all players.
