    Amazing video SLAJA! It's always great to see hockey being played around the world, especially so in non-traditional parts of the world!

    Hi everybody.

    I strongly recommend this full 43-minute TV documentary about women playing ice hockey in Himalaya, including bits of interview withj actual India (men) national team coach :

    That's the way it crumbles, cookie-wise

    I've came across this documentary by accident this morning and it was amazing ! It is really about what most of us around here like about international hockey : people playing for the sake of playing, with no budget but a lot of passion...

    It feels good to see another side of this amazing sport, where it's not about career, money, business and fights, but about all the great reasons... This girl the film is centered around is fantastic too. Made me realize how our youth can sometimes be completely out of step with simple yet deep values, such as hard-working, family and simple pleasures of life, even in harsh conditions...

    I wonder also if this coach Mike has been able to get any bucks from the government... I was kinda thinking he could be somewhere around this forum too...

    Sorry for the lengthy post, but this documentary really spoke to me hehe

    And coaching, administrating, and everything else our great sport needs.

    I had to cringe when seeing them in their skates on the grass but anyway it was an extraordinarily interesting film, so thanks to Marc for the find! To skate with that landscape, that's got to be a dream, except perhaps for the shortness of breath!

    I'm pretty sure his name is Adam Sherlip, isn't it? Apparently there is a documentary in production titled Disputed Ice that centers on his involvement and hockey in Ladakh.

    For those interested, on his organization's website, you can purchase game worn India national team jerseys.

    I found this amazing video on Facebook of all places. It is a nearly seven minute documentary on current hockey activities in Ladakh, in the Indian Himalayas near the border with Pakistani controlled parts of Kashmir/Baltistan and Chinese controlled Tibet.

    India Stanzin Odzes, the 23-year-old woman officer cadet from Ladakh who died of snakebite

    Tangste (Ladakh), Dec 16: The Indian Army's Chusul Brigade organised an inter-village ice hockey tournament here on Sunday under the aegis of the Trishul Division. Ice hockey is a popular sport in Ladakh and particularly during the winter, the local youth take to the game as their favourite occupation. The sports is held on frozen water bodies during winter. The tournament, named after Stanzin Odzes, the 23-year-old woman officer cadet from Ladakh who died of snakebite last year while training in a jungle near Chennai, is a part of Operation Sadbhavna to encourage local talent in sports. The tournament saw participation of 12 teams from local schools and the local Lalok Sports Association actively involved itself with the initiative. The players displayed their skill and enthusiasm during the matches and a large number of people turned up at the venues to cheer their favourite teams. The occasion also saw cultural programmes being organised by local artistes who presented traditional Ladakhi dances and armymen performing Bhangra dance. The final match of the tournament will be played on December 17 and it will be followed by the prize-distribution ceremony.


    Greetings,

    Marc, the video link in post #4 is no longer good (at least for me, not sure if it works for anyone else). Do you or anyone else have an alternate link for it? Thanks in advance.
