Aims & Processes
HIC believes that there is a lot of talent in the inner city areas that hockey misses out on. We are here to change that!
The aim of these projects is not solely to make these kids great at hockey, there is a focus on:
Creating an enjoyable atmosphere and experience that the children attribute to hockey. Hopefully the project encourages the kids to continue this amazing sport but we at least want everyone to have fond memories of playing!
2. Giving kids the tools in the form of the social values and education to be the best versions of themselves and in turn promote good mental health.
3. Inspiring the kids by showing them the educational and sporting pathways available.
Relationships with community projects
We wish to build relationships with community projects that share similar visions. For example, Spencer Lynx is providing free hockey 50 primary school children in the Wandsworth area from the start of September and we will be providing coaching for them during their projects.
Evo Hockey scholarship programme
The EVO Hockey scholarship programme has been set up to benefit kids of the Hockey Inner City projects. Evo have agreed to provide the following:
• 1 free day camp for each member of Hockey Inner City’s first camp at Immanuel & St Andrew’s Primary School
• Scholarship programmes for 3-5 kids of our first project who will be entitled to free camps for a year!!!
