Hockey Dreams League

The event

The Hockey Dreams League is a series of competitions in our 3 Hockey Dreams Communities: Malawi, Uganda and Zambia. From September to December 2022, 10 League days will take place in each community, including sport for development activities tackling social topics. 

Our coaches

organise the League and develop their leadership, administrative and organisational skills.

Our coaches

are role models and create a safe environment for the kids to play, share and learn.

Our coaches and kids

participate in sport and play, receive meals and drinks during the League days, and together learn about social topics.

“Hockey Dreams Foundation is special because they choose to work with local coaches so that the children feel faultless, most have the same past. There is a team of young trainers who train the children every day with full energy, enthuse them and give them warmth and love.”

Bjorn KellermanDutch National Team & Hockey Club Kampong

“I believe that the strength of HDF is keeping things small and personal and therefore make a big impact in a community. Start small, create role models and let it grow organically. This approach in combination with a mindset which states that not another white European will tell them what he thinks is best for them, but facilitate and empower, makes it a very successful programme!"

Tristan AlgeraHockey Club Rotterdam

“By letting the kids play hockey, they stay away from bad behaviour on the streets. You learn them to play together, and let them have fun."

Maria VerschoorDutch National Team & Hockey Club Amsterdam

Hockey Dreams – League – L'Origine


L’ORIGINE represents a global development of Afro Diaspora culture: Urban Afroism. Established in 2015 and based in Amsterdam, L’ORIGINE operates across platforms ranging from menswear to lifestyle coverage and heritage building, at once reflecting and engaging the growing awareness of urban youth ever connected to their roots. Displaying this through substantial but distinct content. Leading this ambiguous practice is a strong emphasis on experimentation and collaboration, without losing the unique vision. The synthesis of upmost creative minds translates through the development and presentation of masterpieces with their own narrative and directive. - C’est L’ORIGINE -

The youth should always be free to express themselves through sports and activities no matter the circumstances. Hockey Dreams creates this chance in a versatile way, by training local coaches to train and guide local kids in more ways than Hockey alone. That’s what we support!
