Hockey Heroes is a fun and welcoming 8-week programme aimed at children aged 5-8. The sessions focus on helping children develop some physical hockey superpowers such as dribbling, passing and goal scoring, but also places as much emphasis on character development superpowers including teamwork, communication, perseverance and respect. Specially designed plastic hockey sticks and a larger, lighter safer ball means it can be played on any indoor or outdoor surface.
Hockey Heroes is for children aged 5-8 years that are new to hockey and focuses on fun and enjoyment. The programme recognises the important role that parents play in encouraging their children to be active and to develop an interest in sport. Certain elements within the programme have been specially designed to maximise parental interest, engagement and involvement.
It also brings parents to the club, so think about offering some Back to Hockey or Walking Hockey alongside the junior sessions to further engage them in the club.
Hockey Heroes is designed to help with the recruitment of juniors into clubs by providing a stepping stone towards membership for children and parents who have little or no experience of hockey.
The programme is a pre-designed fully branded 8-week course that provides clubs with all the activity, game content and equipment for the 8 weeks’ worth of delivery.
An online management system allows clubs to register, manage and promote their Hockey Heroes sessions and children who book onto Hockey Heroes receive a bespoke equipment pack direct to their house designed to build the excitement prior to attending the club.
Clubs receive a financial kickback for every child who books onto the programme.
