About The Hockey Foundation
The pilot program of The Hockey Foundation originated from a 2009 volunteer trip to Ladakh, in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir, by hockey coach Adam Sherlip after coaching ice hockey in China in 2007 on behalf of the NHL’s New York Islanders.
Since a 2011 return to Ladakh, Adam has journeyed to India each season with a growing group of volunteers, sponsors and partners to execute a professional hockey-coaching program in a number of locations. By engineering equipment and book donations, certified coaching, ice rink maintenance advisement and even helping the establishment of India’s National Men’s and Women’s ice hockey teams, Adam and The Hockey Foundation are in a unique position to further cultivate the greatest game on earth not only in India, but in other underserved communities and non-traditional hockey markets across the globe.
