Now that restrictions have been lifted Lions are running a new project to get more children playing inline hockey.
During the lockdown, inline hockey saw quite a few teams close down which has taken a big hit on the sport.
The teams that have managed to stay open have all taken a hit with their player numbers especially in the younger age groups.
Now the restrictions have been lifted Lions have our own insurance policy for Ardwick Sports Centre.
This means Lions can now invite players who are not registered with BRHA to come and try out the sport.
This is where the project that gives hockey a try comes into play.
Lions are going to offer the 1st 2 training sessions for free, this will also include any equipment required to be used.
Lions are now going to offer all keepers free training for as long as they are at the club across all of our sessions as we would like to encourage more people to take up playing as a keeper. This is one area the sport is low in number through all age groups and in all leagues.
Lions currently have various size keeper and player equipment to use so children and senior players do not need their own kit to come and give the sport a go.
We also have a newly designed Toddler Skate & Play session where we give the children rewards for completing the challenges we set for them. The challenges are all created to help develop hockey skills and also encourage children to use the hockey equipment as well as buildup confidence to play hockey and give out Little Lions session a try.
During August Lions are going to make hockey all about fun. We are throwing out the basic training drills and creating challenges and mini-games at the Little Lions & Junior Lions sessions.
We are hoping this will help children feel more comfortable and confident when attending the sessions as it’s all about having fun.
