What is it?
A stick to help coaches train field hockey goalkeepers.
What does the product do?
This stick allows a coach, player or parent to flick the ball easily at the goalkeeper. The speed is controlled by the user and can be used softly for beginners using their hands and more power for advanced keepers simulating top level drag flicks. Its also heaps of fun for outfielders to play with!
This project was part of my final year University project. On completion of my degree I worked with New Zealand based market leaders OBO to launch 3 new products including theD’FLECTA mat, BOBBLA ball and FLICKA stickonto the world hockey market creating a new product range called OBO Training. The products launched on 1st December 2009 and are on sale in 62 countries.
