The Jamaica Hockey Federation (JHF) is close to fulfilling a development commitment it made at last year’s Pan American Hockey Federation Director’s Conference held in Kingston.

The JHF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Tuesday with G C Foster College which could strengthen the Federation’s bid for international assistance.

G C Foster College will train and develop hockey officials needed for the sport while the JHF will help the college to secure and install a turf on their campus.

The MOU will be reviewed in five years but either party can terminate the arrangement in writing at any point.
