    You walk out onto the pitch dressed in green-black-white, stick in hand, game in mind. Heart thumping in anticipation, hands clammy with perspiration. You zero in onto the ball set in the centre of the pitch as the whistle blows, and adrenaline kicks in. Game on.

    Hockey is not a game for the faint-hearted; it calls for dedication and passion. Dedication that helps you pull through arduous trainings and unforgiving weather we play under, and passion for pushing your limits to be the best your team needs you to be. As a hockey player, you are a team member. Individualism is frowned upon here, and we all strongly relate to the saying, 'Teamwork makes the dream work'. Sounds clichéd, but it holds true from experience.
