held, the 1st All Goa mixed 5 a-side hockey tournament in Sept 2021. It was for the first time

in Goa, that girls and boys played together in the same team.

Boys & Girls State Championships organized by Goans Hockey, the state Hockey association

in Oct-Nov 2021.


“We are a fairly young club, mostly managed by young individuals associated with sports in

Goa, vying for the betterment of the young children who play and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We hereby humbly seek your assistance to provide our players with their official jerseys,

hockey equipment and organise hockey tournaments. Most of the club members being
