Welcome to the Drug Freeze Programme. The Guildford Flames have been successfully running this drug awareness programme throughout
The message objective is that ice hockey players use their equipment to help prevent getting injured during games. The drug section of the presentation is therefore trying to give the pupils information which they can then use to protect themselves against harm caused by drug use. The programme endeavours to give pupils the information they need to make the appropriate choice when faced with difficult situations within the school/social setting.
The visit includes a 30 min (approx) presentation by a Guildford Flames Ice hockey player, outlining the equipment used and showing a short video of game clips, followed by another 30 min (approx) presentation giving details on the legal and physical aspects of drug use. These times can be adjusted slightly to fit in with school sessions.

For the bulk of the programme's first 21 years, the Surrey police delivered the Drug education portion of the class visit. Due to Government capping Surrey Police expenditure, the Police no longer offer on-site help with delivering the programme. The drug educational portion of the visit, however, now delivered by a player, is a result of Surrey Police advice and educational directives.
