  "I'm a great believer in the importance of sport and what it teaches young people. I’ve played and followed hockey most of my life and I’m truly taken with the foresight and commitment of Hockey New Zealand. I’m thrilled to be able to help foster and develop junior hockey as these are our next Black Sticks. But grassroots sport delivers much more than just our next international stars. It keeps kids active in these technology-driven times, it teaches lifelong skills like working as a team and respecting others, and it unites communities regardless of their race, wealth or background."

  "From my earliest hockey memories as a five-year-old on Saturday mornings, hockey has been the driver of my healthy and active lifestyle - a value instilled in me for life. Hockey is not only instrumental in establishing healthy habits in young people but it’s a fun and exciting game that can be played at any age. Most importantly hockey has provided me with a sense of belonging. I will never forget the feeling of being a part of something from my first years at under-6s."
