The number of disabled people who take part in sport has grown significantly and England Hockey are committed to providing hockey playing opportunities with an emphasis on inclusion and participation.

Flyerz hockey has become a really positive term for disability hockey in England. Created by our clubs, we prefer it, as Flyerz is something that people want to belong to.

We have two Flyerz events taking place in the coming months, our 3rd National Flyerz Festival and a Flyerz Club Workshop. For more information on both please contact Jason.ocallaghan@englandhockey.co.uk.

Flyerz Festival

Our 3rd National Flyerz Festival is taking place on Sunday 18th June as part of the prestigious Mens hockey World League at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, E20 3AD. Highlights of the festival will include;

-All players to play on the main International pitch
-Exclusive access for Flyerz to the Hockey Hub, with the inflatable pitches, speed gun, skills pitch etc

Hockey is a sport that's easily adapted to different ability levels, so there’s huge potential for hockey to become one of the leaders in disability inclusion. We want more disabled children, young people and adults to have access to our sport.

Tom from Wakefield Flyerz says;
"It is clear that the players who come along to our Flyerz sessions really love playing hockey. One lad says every week how much he loves to come along and take part. He enjoys greeting other members and is delighted when he is praised for the skills he has acquired.”
