The Face off
Pama Golden Knights Academy, was founded in 2020 by the Brazilian player and coach, Pablo Navarro, Luisa Menin his wife and Sabraj Nijjar. Soon after, important additions like current COO Dave Hammond helped drive the project forward.
The PAMA GOLDEN KNIGHTS ACADEMY aim to develop people through the sport and discover talents that we can drive them to achieve their goals taking a stand against racism and focusing on social inclusion through sport. We believe that a person's destiny cannot be determined by their passport. For this reason, in the last 4 years, PGKA has been taking free high-level hockey camps to all parts of the world, since our beginning we have been to more than 15 countries, including Argentina, Brazil (3 teams), Canada, Colombia (2 teams), Ecuador (2 teams), El Salvador, France, Guatemala, India, Italy (2 teams), Mexico, Namibia (3 teams), Spain, Switzerland, Uruguay, United States of America (4 teams), Venezuela.
In 2022 we were recognized by World Skate as the largest hockey social project in the world, and we continue to invest our time to grow even more, focusing on bringing more and more people together and the next step is to create a sports festival with inclusive sports.
A britghter future...
Our dream is to bring hockey to all parts of the world. We want to: provide playing opportunities for players and coaches who were not born in "hockey countries"; making social inclusion in hopes it opens doors to leagues and university; deliver a world class coaches program that develops coaches who in return, can spread their knowledge locally within their communities.
... through hockey ...
Our mission is to give back to the sport we love. Adding social inclusion and combating any form of discrimination inside the sport.
... connecting people ...
We believe in people and we believe in the sport of hockey.
We want to connect these two things together and become the largest social hockey project in the world.
... and making it happen.
Respect, lasting relationships
and good deeds.
