CARIBBEAN - hockey

Hockey in Jamaica is taken very seriously, with teams at all levels from juniors to masters. The national team is training hard for the Pan Am Games being held in the Dominican Republic in August.

Trinidad Hockey is doing well on the international circuit, with the women's team victory over the USA recently qualifying them for the Indoor World Cup being held next February in Leipzig, Germany.
