Borderless Hockey News July 2016

Hello HIPA members, 

I’m proud to see some of the great initiatives in which HIPA and our members are currently involved highlighted in this edition of HIPA’s Borderless Hockey News.

We have just completed our first ‘equipment drive’ in support of The Hockey Foundation in their efforts to bring hockey gear to India’s National Hockey programs.

Last month, we introduced you to one of your fellow club members through a featured article. Ryan Bahl is spearheading a tour to Antarctica in May 2017.  I have a pretty cool follow-up to that article this month.

Registration for upcoming tours remains open – we still have room for those interested in playing some FOURS Hockey in Lafayette.  This great tournament is in support of “Project Operation Occupation”!

As I said above, HIPA is involved in all kinds of great initiatives.  Please read below, and let us know about all the great charity work you participate in.  I’d love to hear how HIPA members are helping others!

Don’t forget to “LIKE” us at www.facebook.com/Hockey.IPA to stay informed on a daily/weekly basis. 

Until next month, keep your skates sharp and your stick on the ice,

Paul de Verteuil
HIPA President

The Hockey Foundation:

This amazing organization is dedicated to improving lives through the sport of hockey, specifically in non-traditional hockey countries.  A couple of months ago, HIPA saw their work and highlighted a video on our #hockeyatitsbest campaign, which demonstrated the passion of young hockey players in India.  The program is catching on, and they need more hockey equipment.  How cool is that?  They need more hockey equipment in India!
HIPA was pleased to be able to help out by leading our own equipment drive.  We were able to donate a whole bunch of equipment for players of all ages, thanks to the generosity of HIPA’s member community! If you or your local hockey community would also like to help out The Hockey Foundation in India, please reply to our newsletter, and we can tell you how.

Antarctica Tour May 2017:

Our club president wanted to include this picture as a follow-up to last month’s featured article on Ryan Bahl and the Antarctica tour.  You can get connected directly with Ryan by “joining” our tour at: http://www.hockey-ipa.com/tours/view_event/69

While marketing this tour, Ryan continues to highlight the importance of environmental consciousness.  Climate change will eventually make it impossible to play outdoor hockey, even in Antarctica!  For more details visit:
