Funkey Hockey

Hockey Club, Tempo, in Bergen op Zoom organized a special event for the little children in their neighborhood called “Funkey Hockey”. The hockey club wanted to do something special, because on Sunday 13th of January they celebrated the Club’s birthday and the new clubhouse. The hockey clinic for the youth (4 – 8 years old), wouldn’t have been complete without the two times Gold Olympic medal winner, Ellen Hoog.


The children had a lot of fun during the clinic, even though it was freezing cold. And let’s face it; Fun is the Key to Hockey ;-).  FunKey Hockey…

Dutch Hockey Players in Ethiopia

Ellen in EthiopiaThe women Dutch hockey players of hockey club Amsterdam H & BC visited Ethiopia as preparation for the second part of the season. This trip had various factors to it; team building, training, but also to support the local communities. Amongst the group of travellers was Ellen Hoog. She was quite rapt with the living conditions of some of the children. They visited an HIV-orphanage, visited an elementary school and talked to locals. It was a great experience for all the women and it also made them realize that you shouldn’t take anything for granted. It brought them closer together as friends and team.
