TK Equipment Packs for Marathon winners
27 Apr 2006 09:34

FIH official supplier, TK, will provide equipment packs to the winners of this year’s Global Youth Hockey Marathon, which will be held on May 13 and 14.

The three National Associations judged to have organised the best event for a minority group within their hockey population, will be awarded with an equipment kit consisting of 75 sticks and 75 balls.

The jury consists of members of the Working Group Youth and the FIH Youth Panel. Prize winners will be announced on the FIH website on 12 June, 2006.

The theme of this year’s Marathon is “Hockey, a sport for Everybody”, coinciding with the launch of the promotional DVD, carrying the same title.

Hockey is a sport for the whole family. To make hockey a real “sport for all” National Associations are invited to create an event for those groups that are still a minority within their national hockey organisation.

NAs that have only girls playing hockey, are encouraged to organise an event to attract boys. Those who have only seniors are invited to organise something for youth, and during this year’s Marathon, we also want to draw special attention to hockey for people with a disability.

A supporting Booklet with Best Practices is available to download.

For more information, contact FIH Development Manager Gabrielle van Doorn, [email protected]

Reports of this year’s Global Youth Hockey Marathon can be found on the WorldHockey website from 15 May.
