We released our first video - The Road To Tokyo - in January 2020, reflecting on the build up to the FIH Olympic Qualifiers that saw both Great Britain's men and women reach the Tokyo Games. Watch below to get insights from Giselle Ansley, Harry Gibson, Chris Griffiths, Maddie Hinch and Ellie Rayer ahead of those crucial matches, what they get up to away from the hockey pitch and much more.

Our second documentary - The Injury - followed Sam Ward's return to the sport following his horrendous injury sustained in the FIH Olympic Qualifiers. With his career seemingly in doubt, follow his journey from undergoing surgery to stepping back onto the pitch for the first time by clicking the link on the right hand side of the page.

More content will be following in 2021 - keep your eyes peeled! 

As well as the videos, we also released our first set of podcast episodes in 2020 to give you even greater access to our international stars.

We spoke to a whole host of players, getting their insight into playing at major tournaments, winning Olympic medals, touring with team-mates and much, much more. With plenty of hilarious and intriguing stories on offer, make sure you check out what the first season had to offer.

The second series started in April 2021, with the focus of the five episodes looking at the relationship between the players and different members of the backroom staff. This included the Performance Psychologists, Goalkeeper Coach, Team Manager and their Performance Lifestyle Advisor.
