Most 12-year-old boys have no idea what careers they would like to get into - it's just a great time to have fun with your mates and enjoy life.
But Callum Jones is in no doubt that he wants to be a professional hockey player and represent the Black Sticks at Commonwealth and Olympic Games.
The year 8 student is a key player in the Otumoetai Intermediate boys' hockey team competing in the NZCT Aims Games at the Blake Park Hockey Centre.
Callum says hockey has been his sporting life for five years.
"I want to be in the Black Sticks obviously and it's a really big driving force for me. It has become a big thing for me since year 6 when I started to get good at the game. I loved watching the Olympics and especially when the women's team got fourth. That was pretty cool."
The Aims Games opening ceremony was an inspiring event for Callum, especially with his Olympic heroes Mahe Drysdale and Sarah Walker talking about where they started out and what it took to reach the top.
"I would like to be at the top like those guys," Callum said. "Being in that place with thousands of others was pretty cool and it was good to be there when the Australian schools came in too. These Aims Games are so huge and when I was here last year, I had no idea how big it is.
"It was really exciting and some of our team are in their first year playing hockey so it is a huge step up against much stronger teams. We can learn from the better teams, especially in passing better and not putting each other down."
Callum's mother, and team coach, Chris Jones says the level of competition at the Aims Games will have long-term benefits for her team.
"It is the ultimate achievement for many of the boys and a steep learning curve," she said. "None of the local teams play at this level and perhaps don't understand the huge pool of players some of the schools have to pick from.
"The skills and fitness of some of the other teams is impressive so I am sure it is inspiring for our kids, who will get to see some really good hockey culminating in the final."
