Together with Continental Federations, National Associations, Recognised Development Organisations and other members of the global hockey family, Hockey4LIFE, is the primary global participation programme of the Hockey2024 strategy. The aim of the programme is to increase global hockey participation at all levels, throughout the world.
Hockey4LIFE projects will encourage people of all ages to START, PLAY and STAY in hockey. The programme runs across three themes – Young People, Women & Inclusion, and Social Development & Legacy.
