Competing for your country gave me the same Adrenalin buzz as serving my country in Iraq.
When you are on the ice before a game and your National Anthem plays you feel incredible and the anticipation grows inside you as you want the game to get underway. In my own words there is no better buzz than representing your country in the field of sport.
What I love about playing the sport is that it is hard, fast, aggressive and a full contact sport. It feels exhilarating being on the ice and when you score or win a game it feels even better and that is shared throughout the team. When I have been playing for two hours and I get off the Ice I have a smile on my face and would quite happily get back on the ice and play another game, that is how much I love this sport.

THE GB NATIONAL TEAM
Athletes from around the league are invited to join the GB Men’s Programme when their coaches believe they are ready. At present the team is Unisex, allowing women to play alongside the men.
We include our ‘Prospect’ players in all of our training camps. A ‘Prospect’ player is someone who has been identified as a potential future International player and so trains with the team to aid their learning and development.
Our 2 day training camps each month include both on-Ice and classroom sessions.
