This year, we’re aiming to start an In-line Hockey session in Suffolk that gives local children a chance to try a great team sport and explore inline skate hockey with the end goal being Suffolk’s first youth hockey team: Mid-Suffolk Mutts.
The 3 main aims of Mid Suffolk Mutts are:
1. Create an inclusive environment for young people from all different backgrounds.
2. Teach teamwork, respect and co-operation through energetic and engaging play.
3. Create grassroots teams of different age groups with the aim to join competitive leagues and put Suffolk inline hockey on the map.
Over the next few months, we’ll be spreading the word to generate interest from all over Suffolk and source basic kit for beginners (This will keep the costs down and make sure we can give as many families the chance to join in).
We’re hoping the first sessions will take place at Mid-Suffolk Leisure Centre.
Suffolk has a wealth of inline and rollerskating sports throughout the county; from Artistic to Roller Derby with a collection of halls and rinks inspiring young skaters.
Our goal is to create a club that is tailored to all ages and teaches young people the benefits of teamwork, mutual respect and hard work through the fastest roller sport in the UK.
