HC Lugano Sezione Giovanile

Perfect U-20 material

For proper training, you need decent equipment: to provide this, HC Lugano dips into PostFinance’s Top Scorer funds.

The youth wing of HC Lugano wants to get kids aged 3 and over into ice hockey, and it aims to get young talent into the U-20 squad without them having to neglect their vocational training. PostFinance’s Top Scorer funds are spent on training equipment, for instance a shooting range, training jerseys and match jerseys, and on a piece of software called “My Ice Hockey”. The organization makes sure its young players receive comprehensive training with a major focus on the game itself, respect, quality and intensity.

    “I like ice hockey because it’s a really enjoyable, fast-paced team sport. My dream is to become a pro ice hockey player. My role model is Gregory Hofmann because he’s quick, aggressive and strong.

    “It’s a fast game where it’s not just the abilities of each individual player that count, but the strength of the team as a whole. I also like the fact that the game has allowed me to meet people from other teams. Playing ice hockey to me means (occasionally really tough) training, friends, commitment, fun, getting tired, long journeys and happiness. My idol is Roman Josi.”
