    Sticks clashing, turf shoes sliding on the wet pitch. You wrestle for the ball, tackling it from the opponent and jinking the ball over the opponent’s stick before going for the hard sweep. Game on.

    Hockey is not for the faint-hearted; it requires both the drive to excel and the hunger for success. It calls for passion, drive, and dedication. Hockey is more than a sport; it lays down the foundation of what teamwork is and demonstrates how pain, anguish, and joy is truly shared amongst the very people you call your teammates. No man is left behind in this sport.
