AYPAD created Hockey Project with a mission to expose the sport to thousands of young people while promoting peace through sport. Hockey is a relatively a new sport in Africa and with many young people living through hardship and deplorable conditions, the need to introduce the sport was timely as its engages young people to reduce the traumatic effects of War, Violence, Abuse and embrace peace while developing their unique hockey talents that can contribute meaningfully to societal growth. The project develops professionals, hockey players, coaches and managers to improve their knowledge on the game, skills, coaching techniques and the impact it has on a nations’ development. The main focus is to use field hockey as a great way to fulfill young people competitive spirit. The fast-paced nature of the sport make it a great activity for young people to include in their exercise routine, whether looking for a recreational activity to play with friends or a more intense competition on a league team. Young people across our countries and communities will have the opportunity to play and be exposed to field hockey in their physical education class; they will have the option to continue to play with their local club. Our goal is to provide an avenue for young people to play hockey while having fun. The program comprises of Field Hockey, Inline Hockey, Beach Hockey and Ice Hockey. We are working to get the first Ice Arena in West Africa.
