Taff Ahmed – Founder & Editor in Chief
Taff Ahmed founded The Hockey Family in 2012, after he’d been providing the local community with information about hockey events taking place in the area and even coaching camps and getting people to play hockey for the local club via his personal Twitter account for the previous two years.
Since then, Taff has built ‘The Hockey Family’ into a worldwide recognised brand using his passion for promoting the sport he loves so much, in which he has been a hockey player and coach for over 25 years.
