Surrey Spartans HC is looking to expand the range of activities offered in Guildford at affordable prices to also include junior hockey.
About the project
The Surrey Spartans Hockey Club was formed in 2010 to help expand the number of people able to enjoy playing hockey in the Guildford area. Since then we have successfully delivered affordable and accessible hockey to men and women aged 18 and above. Our use of social sessions, engagement days and low cost flexible memberships has helped of 250 people have the opportunity to have a go at hockey.
We are now in the position to start expanding what the club offers by adding junior community sessions. In order to continue to deliver these sessions at an affordable price we are looking to raise funds to help subsidise the cost of participation by providing equipment and offsetting the cost of pitch hire. This aims to make the sessions as accessible as possible and encourage those from lower income families to take an interest in the sport. Many children attending state schools do not have the opportunity to try the sport and this project aims to also address this.
Raising just £3000 will enable us to achieve our ambition of offering hockey to any one who wishes to try the sport regardless of age or background.
