When and where?
13-14 May, Seongnam Hockey Stadium

How many people took part?
52 (under 16 girls and boys)

Description/Aim of the event
The participants stayed at Seongnam City for two days, played hockey, shared their friendship, exchanged informations. They promised to meet at this event next year.

The event was held to present hockey’s characteristics and introduction the sport to middle school students because there are a lot of difficulties in making young boys and girls play hockey due to the low rate of childbirth in Korea.

Follow-up from the event
Our association has participated in the Global Youth Hockey Marathon each year. We will try to introduce mini hockey to elementary school (10-15 year-olds) during summer vacation in the future.
