The Face off

Pama Golden Knights Academy, formerly known as Rango Pro Camps, was founded in 2020 by the Brazilian player and coach, Pablo Navarro.

PGKA was born out of the value of family, taking a stand against racism and focusing on social inclusion through sport.

With the support of our sponsors and a team made up of people who love the sport and others, PGKA takes hockey to all parts of the world for free.

Our Dream

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.

Our Mission

... 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.

Our Vision

... 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.

Our Values

... and making it happen.

Respect, lasting relationships

and good deeds.

We are very proud of our team. We invite you to meet them.

Our Golden Knights

Why PGKA? >


"This project is the realization of a dream of mine after 38 years of uninterrupted hockey, having served as coach and player in all around of the world, i know the difficulties of the poorest countries in developing  sports like hockey, most athletes do not have money to travel and sometimes not even to survive.

Being able to bring information and see their smiles is priceless, and even better, do all of this with my friends.

“I have started playing Roller Hockey on the streets in the 1980s on Quad-Roller Skates.

The sport has surely evolved a lot since then and I am still in love with Inline Hockey every day.

I have been involved as a club founder, player, coach and federation board member. It is an honor to share my knowledge with the Inline Hockey community inside the PGKA.”

"Without realizing it I have accumulated more than 25 years of experience in Inline Hockey. I have either played or coached on 6 continents and have had the opportunity to understand how the game is played across the world. I believe it is time I put my knowledge to good use and share it with all who are interested. There is no better feeling than making a difference in someone else's life."

I’ve been playing roller hockey for 25 years. To this day, my biggest accomplishment has been playing for Team USA. I have also played in the pro leagues in France and Spain. The game of inline hockey has really taught me valuable life lessons and guided me in completing my life goals. It’s a great sport that can help in many aspects of your life."

“While my husband spends most of the time in the spotlight, I have learned how to organize and successfully grow the sport from a governance point of view behind the scenes. National Team Manager, National Federation Treasurer, National Federation Secretary, National Federation Sports Officer and a part time player, are all roles I have had in the past. I am honoured and excited to collaborate on a project such as PGKA and I hope my knowledge will help make a positive difference."

"Having been involved in inline hockey for 24 years as a player and coach for both Great Britain and Hong Kong, I am honoured and excited to now be part of the PGKA. In my 9 years here I have seen a lot of talent in South East Asia but also lots of potential for growth. I'm looking forward to helping the PGKA further develop inline hockey here, building on the foundations that those before me have put in place and seeing even more players and teams from this region at the top level of inline hockey in the future."
