GLADSTONE'S hockey results in the recent weeks have put the state of Queensland on high alert and the next wave of talent is about to journey off to stake a claim at glory.

There are four teams that have prepared themselves for the task at hand, both the girls' and boys' under-15s sides, as well at the same complement in the under-13s.

Off to the Tweed Border, the boys' under-15s are setting their sights on bringing home some silverware, or at least some fond memories of the trip.

"We always play well and the boys are going to be playing teams like Sunshine Coast," manager Paul Day said. "I have gone away for three years and it has always been a great experience."

The talent pool from Gladstone may not have as many players to pick from, but that is not going to stop the under-15 boys' team facing up to the bigger areas and finishing the game on top.

Gladstone's hopefuls will face up against the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane 3, Redlands, Warwick and Hervey Bay, and Walz Group has come on board to assist the boys to overcome their opposition.

"It is all about the development of the kids and encouragement; if we play to our potential that will be great," Day said.

"Colin Walz of Walz Group has donated a full kit, including tops, pants, a bag and drink bottle for the boys."

"He also got us the goals and dugout roof for our local field."
