The newly revamped Inline Hockey development program ‘Mighty Pucks’ was relaunched at the 2012 Inline Hockey National Championships in Adelaide last week.

Highlighted through a feature game called ‘Future Stars’, 2 teams of juniors under the age of 10 showed off their newly acquired hockey skills in front of a crowd of more than 1000 people at the Adelaide Arena.

Originally created by Inline Hockey Australia Chairman Gordon Young in 2007, ‘Mighty Pucks’ was designed to teach children how to play inline hockey in a structured but fun way, to continue to grow and develop the sport.

Skate Australia’s Pathway Participation Manager Aaron Sprigg believes the program highlights the future potential of the sport to continue to grow in Australia.

“‘Mighty Pucks’ has the ability to transition heaps of new young players into the sport, reaping the benefits of this strong development program and positioning them well to be great players in the future, continuing to enjoy the sport and have fun along the way," he said.

Skate Australia would like to thank ILHA, Corey Smith and the ILHSA Executive Committee for helping to make ‘Future Stars’ and the relaunch of ‘Mighty Pucks’ happen.
