Flyerz Hockey Tools and Resources
To help clubs who run Flyerz sections or those thinking of starting to deliver Flyerz activity we have pulled together a number of tools and resources from partners such as the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS), Sports Coach UK, Access Sport, Disability Sports Coach and Sport England.
How To Integrate Flyerz Hockey Into Your Club
A step by step guide produced by Access Sport and Forest Flyerz, in collaboration with England Hockey, that guides clubs through the process of starting up Flyerz hockey.
A tool created by EFDS to help clubs include more disabled people in their activities. It can be used in a variety of ways including to audit your club to see how inclusive you are or as a resource to support your club's development. This toolkit will give you ideas, methods and resources to ensure everyone has a positive club experience.
Sports Coach UK’s specific impairment guidance to allow you to be more informed in your approach to being a more inclusive coach. Alongside this Brighton and Hove Hockey Club have created 40 hockey specific sign languages for deaf players, which can be accessed here.
An online course, provided by Disability Sport Coach, designed to help you learn about different types of disability, examine social attitudes and barriers towards disabled people and the use of appropriate terminology. You will also explore practical ways to make your coaching inclusive through the Inclusion Specrum and STEPS principals and identify how different types of communication can also impact on this.

The way in which disabled people access communications may be different to non-disabled people; and people with different impairments have different needs or experience different ‘barriers’ to accessing information. EFDS have produced a video to show the tools and tactics sports providers can use to let more people know about the inclusive activities they offer, and crucially make it clear that their activity offers a welcome environment for everyone.
This is supported by a guide to inclusive communications to assist providers to reach a wider audience, including more disabled people. To access the guide click here.
EFDS has released its ‘Talk to Me’ report, which outlined 10 principles that sports providers could follow to help make their sport or activity more appealing to disabled people. Click the title to see an overview of the principles or click here to see them in action.
