ABOUT 35 junior hockey teams hit the park as part of the 2016 Hookin2Hockey Carnival at Charles Riley Reserve in North Beach last month.        

The North Coast Raiders Hockey Club hosted the Hockey WA sanctioned carnival, which is a modified junior hockey game designed for young children learning the game in a safe environment.

Junior director Debbie Campbell said the teams of six players, in teams ranging from years 1-4, played against each other throughout the day.

“The carnival was all about participation and having lots of fun in a modified game run across a quarter of a pitch where no scores or ladder were kept,” she said.

“We were very lucky to run this carnival.”
