A future through hockey. Hockey Dreams Foundation aims to enable a better future through hockey. We do this by developing sustainable hockey communities: the hockey pitch provides a background for local learning opportunities. Coaches and kids from communities with challenging circumstances come together through their shared passion for the hockey sport.
”Sport has the power to change the world.NELSON MANDELA
Ten coaches – from underprivileged areas – in every community each running a registered, active hockey club. These clubs oversee: training, competition, equipment and other matters that are common in sport organisations. All our coaches receive a monthly allowance (their first job) and most important: their school fees. Education first!
Hundreds of children mentored on and off the pitch by our coaches. The children learn the importance of cooperation, how to respect each other and how to set goals. Other subjects covered include health and hygiene. The coaches motivate the children to play in a safe environment and, by example, demonstrate that anyone can have a bright future despite where they come from.
Thousands of people are reached through the programs facilitated by Hockey Dreams Foundation – not only coaches and children. By creating a healthy and safe sport community we stimulate parents, family members, friends and other athletes to be part of this developed, self-sufficient and sustainable community.
