The brief was to produce a machine that would consistently produce that cross or shot again and again and give coaches the facility to train their players more effectively. The first BOLA ‘Hockey’ machine was built in 1989 and is now in use at many schools and clubs throughout the world. Unlike human beings, the BOLA never tires. It will feed the perfect pass or shot at goal time after time. For all players, goalkeepers and coaches, frustration at poor passing shooting or feeding during training sessions can be a thing of the past. With the BOLA Hockey Machine, everyone can concentrate on quality practice and make maximum use of the available time. Training sessions with the BOLA are instantly more productive.
