Joel Carroll, a member of the Australian Men's Hockey Team, the Kookaburras, will chat with students from Gapuwiyak High School.

The students will have the opportunity to ask Joel questions about his hockey career, the Olympic Games and what it is like to be an Indigenous Olympian.  

Aspiring to be a mentor for indigenous children, Joel hopes to be able to educate kids in healthy eating and the importance of playing sport. With players like Carroll, fellow Kookaburra Jeremy Hayward an Peris at the top of their game, the Darwin community rallies behind them and the area has seen a strong growth of hockey in its result.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by AUS Olympic Team. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
