Frankfurt's very special heartbeats for Hockey
#BeActive!... so the great motto of Europe's Week of Sport. "What a wonderful possibility to get all kids motivated doing some sporty activities for free and to bring them closer to our hockeysport!", were my first thoughts and my decision to participate with my little Hockey-Kids book was instantly taken.
I was immediately hooked and followed the request for help I had seen at the federation Hessischer Hockey-Verband in Germany.
Three of Frankfurt's hockey clubs had the same enthusiasm and we started to plan that what we called our Hockey day.
So Tuesday, 26. September, we all arranged our stuff at this wonderful location at the Hafenpark and had a very enjoyable and unique afternoon: Clubs joining together to show kids the beauty of hockey
Remembering this day, I still have this happy smile on my face. Watching kids playing hockey for the first time, feeling this common joy of the clubs let me feel the particularity of this event:
Stronger together - Together for hockey
As I didn't found any similar event so far in Europe, I feel proud of having been part of this one that will hopefully find a lot of imitators in the future.
Thank you TGS Vorwärts, TSV Sachsenhausen and Eintracht Frankfurt Hockey for that very special and unique teamwork! Can't wait repeating it next year!
