The three summer sporting codes which share the use of Paparoa Park, home ground of the Howick Hornets Rugby League Club, during winter; are joining forces to host for the children of our community, a Have-A-Go evening, a free event.
It is a chance to experience each of the diverse sports of Lacrosse (Eastern Chiefs Lacrosse Club), AFL (Aussie Rules) by the Hornets AFL Club and Kiwi Tag (hosted by Hornets Tag).
This is offered as a free community event by the host sports clubs to children aged 5 to 15.
Children attending will be divided into groups on the evening, to rotate around the three sports in turn, experiencing skills and drills specific to that sport and participating in a half-field game in a fun and carnival-type atmosphere.
There will also be a free sausage sizzle at the end of the night.
Lacrosse will also be taking this opportunity to showcase an inaugural women’s team competing this season with the Club.
- Have-a-go evening at Paparoa Park, 52R Paparoa Road, Cockle Bay, 5:30pm, Friday October 30.
