Flyerz Hockey is starting in June

  • Flyerz Hockey Players 001

Flyerz Hockey is the name for disability inclusive hockey across the UK. It concentrates on having fun, learning new skills, making friends and promotes an active and healthy lifestyle.

In partnership with Access Sport, Oxford Hawks Hockey Club are planning on introducing Flyerz hockey into its hockey offering, starting with a kick off month this coming June! It will provide hockey sessions for people with pan-disabilities and involves a variety of activities, exercise and most importantly fun. There is absolutely no hockey experience needed, all you need to bring is enthusiasm.

What is Flyerz Hockey?

Flyerz Hockey started in 2012 alongside London hosting the Paralympics. The provision of Flyerz Hockey is supported by Access Sport and England Hockey.

How to get involved

We are running the kick off month EVERY SATURDAY in June, from 9-10am at BRN, with the 1st session on 5/6/21.

There is absolutely no hockey experience needed and we welcome anyone to come along, get to know us and have some fun. If you are interested in joining or would like more information about our sessions, please email drewblackburn@hotmail.co.uk. Please also feel free to pass this information on to anyone you think interested!

All sessions across June will be offered free of charge. We provide all the equipment and anyone is welcome from the age of 8. However, if you are a little younger, contact us, and we will do our best to get you involved.

Volunteer

Volunteers are key to this programme and we would love for you to join our Oxford Hawks Flyerz team. We are looking for volunteers as coaches, first aiders, carers, fundraisers and anyone handy with their hands. Also any of our junior members looking for their DofE or Sports Leader volunteering are very welcome! We are providing workshops to support you and in return would really appreciate your support in making Flyerz Hockey at Oxford Hawks a success.

Again, please email drewblackburn@hotmail.co.uk if you would like to volunteer or if you have any other queries, including if you or your business would be interested in sponsoring the programme!
