“I believe the strength of HDF is keeping things small and personal, empowering role models, and therefore making a big impact in the communities. 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."

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!
