CWG funding will support our “back to hockey” initiative, we have had in excess of 70 participants to the program

We were successful in applying and securing Commonwealth Games legacy funding to support our “back to hockey” initiative, we have had in excess of 70 participants to the program

A big thank you to:

  • Malcolm Evans for applying and securing the funding, and
  • Paul Merrell, Rachel Humphries & Gerry Ogle for organising and supporting the sessions

The message from England Hockey is:
"The Commonwealth Games Legacy Project – Back to Hockey video that we filmed at your club in the summer has been finalised and uploaded to our England Hockey YouTube channel.
Combined with Redditch’s Back to Hockey sessions, the video is one of a series of six that showcase how the project has been successful in bringing hockey to new audiences across the Midlands. The videos show that positive hockey experiences can be delivered using different ways to play, in different environments, across the whole community. These have been positioned as B2B resources, to inspire, encourage and support other clubs, schools and community organisations to become involved in hockey."...
"The videos will be added to our CWG Legacy Project pages on the England Hockey website and shared with the other clubs and community groups involved in the project."
