HKFC Mini Hockey Festival 2014

Teams will be representing schools and clubs from throughout Hong Kong and across the Under 8, Under 10 and U12 age groups. There will be a number of new entries this year as Field Hockey continues to grow in popularity. As always the competition will be tough, with GSIS, Khalsa, KCC, and HKFC looking strong contenders in each of the age groups.
