In 2019, given that we had more and more player members, the captains of the 3 teams (60, 65 and 70+), and the sports managerdecided to create a non-profit association.
This association is made up of the 4 founding members, President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, and has added a marketing manager, a representative of the 60+ and a representative of the Ladies team.
Just before the start of the pandemic, our ladies formed a 60+ team and are about to create a second team.
They joined the association under the name Belgium Old Panthers after the name of our national hockey team, the Belgian Red Panthers.
Recently, a team of men O75 has been created. They played their maiden game against the Netherlands 75+B on October 6, 2021.
Barely twenty years ago, Belgian hockey players most often stopped playing their favorite sport at the end of their first team career, between 30 and 40 years old.
We have set ourselves the goal of stopping this, on the basis that for the future of Belgian hockey it was essential that the elders continue to play their favorite sport for as long as possible ...
Let us never forget that we carry the pyramid of Belgian hockey: player, trainer, sports manager, manager, sponsor ... not to mention, the best customers of our bars and restaurants.
Make Masters hockey as attractive, competitive and fun as possible while respecting our fundamental values: fair play, fun, family so that we can play it with as much pleasure as possible for as long as possible.
