- Commenced on May 7 Nationwide, Junior Hockey League Under 19, with 360 participants
Commenced on May 14 Kuala Lumpur, Coaching Clinic for Under 12 (every Friday and Sunday), with 50 – 70 coaches each session.
The aim of these events was to unearth new talent, to encourage competitiveness and thereby enjoy the game of hockey and to promote and popularize the game amongst the masses.
It was highly successful. Parents got involved especially in the Under-12 Clinics.
