Hockey4All will be joined by Jeremy from How to Hockey as they travel to Ankara, Turkey for coaching and a gear donation. The program was developed by Hockey4All and The Hockey Foundation and backed by the Turkish Ice Hockey Federation to help build hockey in the underserved regions of Turkey including Ankara, Antalya and Erzurum.
The Hockey Foundation and Hockey4All have prepared 650 pieces of equipment to be shipped to Turkey. This gear includes skates, helmets, gloves, shoulder pads, pants and totaling around 80 full sets of gear to help accommodate their developing number of players joining the sport.
In conjunction with the gear donation our team will be traveling with Jeremy from How to Hockey (https://www.youtube.com/user/howtohockeydotcom) to do daily on and off ice coaching, player development and helping the Turkish ice hockey program.
“The development of these regions in Turkey’s ice hockey program are critical for the growth and development of all of our national programs. Getting these children gear is a great first step in building our programs!”
Keith McAdams, U20 National Coach, Turkey Youth Development Director
