First peek at hockey's major 2012 plans

As we look to make the most of the incredible opportunity that the 2012 Olympic Games presents our sport, England Hockey is embarking on a programme of talks to tell the hockey nation about its exciting plans for the Olympic year. 

We would like to invite you to join us at one of ten venues across the country to hear about plans for a major participation programme before, during and after the Games, a series of public hockey experience events, Great Britain Olympic athlete ambassadorial visits, Hockey House supporter venues, ticketing and much, much more.

The England Hockey directors will cover more than 1200 miles as they travel the country over the next month to outline what will be happening and how you can get involved.  Details on how to register to attend are contained below.
