TeamUp Conference

TeamUp 2020 2
TeamUp Conference is a massive hit with Primary School Teachers and news of additional FREE Teacher Training Workshops in London.

We have been in a unique moment in time for women's sport. Between 2017 and 2019 England have hosted three consecutive women's World Cups. 
To capitalise on this the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), England Hockey and England Netball launched TeamUp, a three-year campaign to maximise the legacy of the World Cups and build a broader fan base for women's team sports.

Schools play a large part in girls' early experiences of team sports, therefore supporting schools and teachers is a great way to ensure there is a positive and lasting legacy for the three women's World Cups. 

Following its launch, TeamUp was awarded more than £600,000 by Wembley National Stadium Trust (WNST) that has been invested in schools in the London area. Following on from last year's TeamUp Conference for Secondary Teachers, this year’s conference was aimed at Primary School Teachers.

Delegates at The KIA Oval gained the opportunity to learn techniques from expert coaches at Youth Sport Trust on how to deliver an engaging PE experience for their students. They also experienced a hands-on introduction to Hockey Heroes, England Hockey’s new participation programme at five-to-eight year-olds. There were also keynote speeches from Youth Sport Trust CEO Ali Oliver and our very own Olympic gold medallist Kate Richardson-Walsh, exploring the wider outcomes that can be achieved through the delivery of team-based sports.

Whilst the TeamUp programme will shortly be coming to an end, due to WNST funding England Hockey are able to offer a final set of free Beginner Teacher Training Workshops in London. Aimed at both primary and secondary teachers, teaching assistants or sports teachers with little or no hockey delivery experience or those wishing to increase their confidence.
