Support sought for dedicated Wānaka under-18 hockey player

Pictured: Brianna Curtis, in goalkeeping gear, prepares to defend for her team.

Brianna Curtis, a 16-year-old, year 12 student at Mount Aspiring  College has been selected to represent Southern in their U18 regional women’s team as goalkeeper.

Though it is a great honour to be selected and a true reflection of Brianna’s dedication to the game, representation comes at a huge financial cost. For the past six weeks she has had to self-fund her travel to Dunedin every Thursday night for training, as well as to Gore and Christchurch for mini-tournaments.

The national tournament will be held in Wellington from July  7 to 14. The costs will be in the region of $2000.

Brianna is using her savings earned from a part-time job in the school holidays and is organising a raffle to raise funds to help get her to Wellington. If you would like to support her in her efforts please drop her a line through the club’s email
