What people are saying

A dream come true” was how many participants described the 1&9 coaching clinic in September 2013 hosted by Gawler Hockey Club. The 1&9 coaching team, which consisted of Mark Knowles, Jamie Dwyer and Eddie Ockenden, provided excellent, easy to understand training drills and skills which all players enjoyed thoroughly. As Gawler Hockey Club is not a large club, we invited over 12 clubs throughout South Australia to attend this clinic with us and final numbers were in excess of 170 participants. The 1&9 coaching team handled these numbers easily and all participants were kept very busy. These guys are not only amazing players, they are also great coaches and had a wealth of experience when it came the Q & A sessions. The coaching clinic was invaluable for not only the participants but also the clubs involved, as meeting these high profile hockey players inspired everyone to keep practicing and playing hockey. This clinic also raised the profile of Gawler Hockey Club in South Australia, which will be invaluable in recruiting more new players. The feedback from the parents and participants was overwhelmingly positive and everyone walked away with a photo and autograph as a lasting memory of the clinic. Gawler Hockey Club would not hesitate to invite the 1&9 Coaching team back for some more clinics in the future
