The passion for hockey and the dedication and commitment of every member of the Thiene Under 13 Hockey Team has led them to achieve an incredible goal: third place in the National Championships. This team, which demonstrated a strong team spirit and remarkable artistic growth, witnessed an exceptional year that will remain in memory.

The team consists of Mattia Ilicic (captain), Stefano Baraos, Matteo Casarotto, Samuele Cavazzoni, Clara dal Castello, Tommaso Carollo, Giovanni dal Zotto, Alessandro Tella, Jewell Rizzo, Federico Bonato, Andrea Maragnin, Roberto dal Castello, and Brian Uderzo. After a fantastic preliminary tournament in Veneto-Friuli, she qualified in third place, ensuring a place in the finals of the national category.

The national championship, which was held in Castiglione della Pescaia from May 30 to June 2, saw the participation of ten teams from all over Italy. Thane Hockey Team, which was initially considered one of the least favoured, managed to finish second in their group, thus entering the quarter-finals against Follonica Hockey, the current champions. With a 6-2 win, Thiene reached the semi-finals against Roller Hockey Bassano. Despite a balanced first half, Thane was defeated, maintaining their place in the third place final against Hoki Scandiano.

The bronze medal match was an exciting and decisive shootout, with Theni goalkeeper Tommaso Carollo, the absolute protagonist, saving five out of six penalty kicks. Thus, the team achieved third place, which demonstrated great perseverance and team spirit.

Team coach Pietro Lotti said: “I am very proud of my boys, they have worked hard all year and have developed not only technically as players, but also on a personal level. I firmly believe that the success of these guys lies not only in their technical skills, but also in their cohesion.” And in their ability to be a team on and off the field, the bronze medal is the culmination of all the sacrifices made this year, but also a springboard for the years to come.

The coach explained that ice hockey is a sport that, although it is not as popular as football or basketball, requires a remarkable technical and tactical level, in addition to great physical preparation. This sport is available to everyone, and it mainly requires patience and determination. Hockey Thiene, based in PalaCeccato and PalaRobur in Thiene, has worked closely with youth for over 50 years and also boasts a first team that plays in the Serie A2 National Championship.

Giovanni Dal Zotto and Clara Dal Castillo, two young athletes on the team, shared their experiences. “For me, hockey is a big passion – explained Giovanni, almost 12 years old – and it has introduced me to a lot of friends and helped me grow as a person. When I play, I have a lot of fun, despite the fatigue. “Added Clara, also 12 years old. And the team’s goalkeeper: “I play the role of goalkeeper, which requires a lot of responsibility, but I love testing myself. I dream of becoming the best hockey goalkeeper in Italy!”
