Stories from our current Back To Hockey players on why they returned and how they got on

Our national Back to Hockey Campaign for 2017 has been and gone but fear not, it will return next year bigger and better than before!

What is Back to Hockey?
Back to Hockey sessions are fun, social and informal and aimed at people who either have not played for a number of years or are looking to play for the first time. Do not worry if you are nervous or cannot remember any rules; our Back to Hockey coaches will gently guide you through this series of fun and friendly sessions. We promise it is nothing like the old school days of muddy pitches and standing around waiting for a touch of the ball.

It is not just us who think Back To Hockey can be great for your club - here are some of the benefits you have told us about:

  • More Club Players - 40 players have started to play regularly again in just 18 months (Prescot HC)
  • More Casual Players - We can target players who just want to play for fun and do not want to commit to a club environment (Belper HC)
  • Additional Income - The pitch is already booked for other teams and we are volunteers so all subs go straight into the club's funds (Wimbledon HC)
  • Extra Publicity - It is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of our family club in the local area (Gillingham Anchorians HC)
  • New Volunteers - Around a dozen members have supported the sessions, which is great as it also helps promote the social side (Gillingham Anchorians HC)
  • Feel Good Factor - This group have brought enthusiasm to our ladies section that, quite honestly, has turned it around (Keynsham HC)
