Whatever level you’ve played hockey at, this unique experience is for you and your friends in this Olympic Year on GB's home pitch.
This unique hockey day curated by double Olympians Shona McCallin and David Ames, each event will have two members of the squad present who'll do some coaching and guide you through a bunch of challenges where you'll have the opportunity to take them on head-to-head in a ‘Beat the Medallist’ competition
Are you a secret striker and can find the top corners to score maximal points? Or can you reach speeds of 100kph when hitting the ball at goal? You will be competing in various challenges scoring points for yourself. Wherever you finish, you get a medal placed around your neck by a GB Olympian and a photo signed by the athlete capturing that once in a lifetime moment.
The session culminates in an exclusive Q and A with the host medal winners to pick their brains about life as a professional athlete and what really goes on at the Olympics.
Everyone goes home with exclusive event medals and signed memorabilia from the host athletes plus professional photos to give you an awesome social media timeline.
Set by Double Olympians and Medallists.
