March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day! On this day, the German Hockey Association invites people with Down syndrome to come with their parents or two other accompanying persons free of charge to the FIH Hockey Pro League games in the Mönchengladbach Hockey Park.
“We have some players with Down syndrome in the increasingly popular special hockey teams.So, there is a close relationship in hockey anyway. And we would very much like to use the day to show people with Down syndrome and their relatives how much fun playing hockey is.” explained Carola Meyer, DHB President.
On this World Down Syndrome Day, the special guests in the stadium can then take the hockey stick in their own hands and play with the hockey ball. Special hockey players will showcase their skills and there are also some attractive prizes to be won.
People with Down syndrome or their relatives can register at email@example.com and order their three free tickets for World Down Syndrome Day in the Mönchengladbach HockeyPark.
