Meet The Ambassadors - Meet Jack
Welcome to the sixth installment in our Meet The Ambassador series. Each ambassador brings their own qualities to our team, many selflessly give up their time to give back to hockey, something that is close to our hearts; all get involved in helping us to develop new products with their feedback and ideas.
We thought it would be great for you to see behind the scenes and get to know them a little better. We've given each ambassador 15 quirky questions and asked them to pick their 5 favourite and entertain us with their answers...
Meet Jack. Jack has been an ambassador with us from the age of 11, since 2018. Ripping the opposition apart with cheeky, tricky skills in the badgers games was his forte, now playing in the men's leagues he's enjoying learning how to play in a much more physical environment. Until Covid hit, he had begun experiencing the next level on the player pathway and was training at his regional PC centre, Jack is hoping that things will start to get back to normal soon. Here are his responses to our questions...
Club: North Stafford HC
Stick: R95 - I love the feel of it and the power it gives me when hitting the ball. It's also really good for 3D skills and ariels.
If you could have one magical power, what would it be? : I would love to be able to fly! I find travelling to new places amazing so if I could fly it would make seeing the world a lot easier!
What is your favourite film? : It has to be James Bond 'Spectre'. Cars are my passion and the cars in the James bond films are amazing with the gadgets.
What food do you dislike and why? : Ask my mum and she would say pretty much all salad and vegetables! But the one I dislike the most is cucumbers ... they're just awful.
Friday night- would you rather stay in or go out? : Go out! I love being with my friends, so that would certainly be my choice. It's been difficult for eveyone during the pandemic so I can't wait until we can see everyone normally again and go back to the club house after the games too.
If you could re do one day in your life, what would it be and why? : I went to the hockey World Cup in London in July 2018 and managed to get all the Dutch ladies to sign my stick and then we went to watch the England ladies play the USA. It was an amazing atmosphere and brilliant to see a professional match. I would love to do that day all over again.
So that's Jack. He's missing playing his hockey at the moment but looking forward to brighter and better days around the corner when we can all get back out there on the pitch.
Next week ... meet Keira
