Part of the clubs vision is to increase junior participation, especially from deprived and ethnic minority groups who have limited access and are underrepresented due to lack of hockey opportunities.

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Our project aims to increase the participation of young children into a sport which has an issue with diversity and inclusion. We will target PE lessons, after school clubs and holiday programmes to targeted schools to introduce and deliver hockey. The aim is to encourage pupils to take up hockey long term outside of school time to make is sustainable. The project will also aim to deliver holiday programmes to keep children active. Children are at risk from a growing epidemic of childhood obesity which is linked to poverty and lack of education. Our project will not only try and get children physically active but it will also engage a growing number of children within the sport of hockey. There is a growing need to provide platform for disengaged children away from anti-social behaviour and gang culture which is a growing issue within the borough. We also hope to encourage parental engagement to support their children's active lifestyle as parental participation is low.

What we'll deliver:

  • Increase the profile of hockey within the deprived borough of Tower Hamlets
  • Improve health benefits of our young - reduce childhood obesity, stress and anxiety
  • support the long-term sustainability of Tower Hamlets hockey club
  • Get more parents involved in supporting their child's active lifestyle
  • Develop pupils soft and hard skills ready for education and employment

Why it's a great idea:

• Social hockey: fun game every Saturday/Sunday out of hockey season, for all club members and beginners to have a fun game of hockey; a great way to meet other people and develop community cohesion. • Summer/Winter league: Participants will be encouraged into competitive games so they can join our summer/winter league teams (different levels to suit everyone) • Training: all participants would be invited to join youth/adult training both weekdays and weekends • Become a full club member: all participants could become full adult club members and play competitive matches, at a heavily discounted young person rate. • And finally, as well as the participants joining our regular youth/adult teams, some might like to also play within their own age group, so we’d want to organise friendly matches for under 16s, under 18s, which would require extra qualified coaches from within the club.

Steps to get it done:

  • to have regual hockey sessions at 6 different schools
  • Start a girls youth hockey team
  • Get a mini bus
