A.S.D. Lazio Hockey Prato Giovani visited the primary school IC Carducci to teach the young children about Field Hockey and how it is also a sport for females. The children were incredibly enthusiastic to learn about a new sport and how it is played.
The visit was a success as the teachers and coaches asked Roberto Brocco, President of the Lazio Hockey team and Gabriella Bascelli, the project coordinator to return soon so that the children will be able to play within the school again. The encounter was very emotional even for the project leaders as the children were very affectionate.
Our gratitude goes to the European Commission and its efforts in co-funding a project aimed at gender equality. Many of the young girls have been positively affected by the sport and cannot wait for us to come back and teach them more about this wonderful sport.
