There will be a range of fun competitions and games for young hockey fans to take part in; from spot the cuddly toy zebra’s around the venue, to designing a stick to win a stick with their design on.  England Hockey temporary tattoos will be available to collect from the England Hockey stand to pledge your support to the team, as well as In The D wristwatches, plus many more freebies to take away from the day!
