  • Need

    Need

    Providing opportunities to play hockey by developing new coaches, leaders and volunteers to be able to deliver in schools and the wider community. It will engage with pupils from a wide range of schools, mainstream and special. The funding will enable wider access to hockey.

    Solution

    By training more coaches and volunteers and providing funding to support the coaches to deliver in the schools and the wider community. It will also pay for new equipment and facilities to be able to deliver. Without the funding it will be very difficult to deliver new opportunities.
