* 2016 New Zealand Junior Women (14 and under) playing in Hawaii AAU Junior Olympics

My sporting goal is to go over to Hawaii, play hard but fair and put in lots of training before we go, I especially need to work on my back hand and put on harder shots. One day I am hoping to make the New Zealand Senior Women’s team to worlds.
HAYDEN AND SHALAYA BOTH PLAY INLINE HOCKEY- HELP THESE SIBLINGS MAKE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE!
Hi we are Hayden and Shalaya Luckin we are both traveling to Hawaii in July to represent New Zealand for Inline Hockey at the AAU Junior Olympics, we are both very passionate about inline and it is our only sport we play so to be able to play for New Zealand is such an honour to represent our country. We train hard and keep fit off the rink as well, our coaches have played a major role in getting us where we are today. Big thanks to all coaches and managers for all their work in sports.
Hayden is playing in the 16 and under team, I have been playing since I was 6, I started playing school league and one of the Ravens coaches was reefing ( Anna Carrington)and asked Mum to bring me alone to club training and that’s how it all started, since then I have made central regionals most years and have played for New Zealand for the last 3 years, last year traveling to Australia were I captained the 14 and under team, which we bought home gold, such and amazing experience to be able to captain a team at such a high level. My ultimate goal is to make worlds in the future.
Shalaya is playing for Junior Women which is 14 and under, I started playing when I was 8, I also started playing at school league and just fell in love with the game, it’s fast and hard especially when you’re playing against the boys, that’s why it’s good having the Jnr women grade. I have made central regional teams for the last few years and also went to Australia last year and our Jnr women team won every game and bought home gold. I love the sport.
The cost of the trip is $5600 each! Hayden has been doing milking’s and firewood help raise funds, Shalaya has been selling pinecones and doing house keeping.
