For a sport that is thousands of years old, hockey really is leading the way in sports development. Whether we are talking about training, equipment or skills, hockey is always looking to push the boundaries. So much so, that other sports are looking our way for innovation and ideas.


For the next week we will be looking at some of the ways that hockey is developing. We hear from George Pinner, one of the best goalkeepers in the world about how a few inches of foam stands between him and a ball travelling at 100 miles an hour; a top sports university is radically changing how coaches use statistics; the use of video technology has transformed how hockey is officiated; and hockey sticks… can they get any more high tech?
