BBC Wales Sport looks at why 2017 could be a defining year for Welsh hockey.
Both its men's and women's squads play in major international tournaments, qualification to the Commonwealth Games could be secured and the women's 'B Division' European Championships are being held in Cardiff.
Three Welsh players have also just been called up the GB squad for the first time since 2013.
