To create an opportunity for ten under 10 years olds to learn to skate and play Skater Hockey by offering an accessible training programme

by Mid Suffolk Mutts S.H.C in Stowupland, England, United Kingdom

Our Story

Back in 2018 around Christmas time we had a dream to create a club to give families in Suffolk the chance to play the great sport of Skater Hockey. A few conversations and a month of creative graft, we entered 2019 with our club name, promoted the idea on Facebook and conquered our first Crowdfunder to buy protective equipment and hall time to make our hockey dream an accessible and affordable reality to Suffolk families.

24th February 2019 was our first training session where we only expected 6 young skaters to turn up and explore the sport, but to our shock, 16 Peewees (under 13's) came along with their amazingly supportive families and our club was formed.

This time round...

We now have two age groups for Suffolk children to join, the first being our Peewee squad (our original goal) and a brand new small Minnow team (under 10s). We have realised that the our mighty Minnows need a separate time and structure to develop their skills and support the fun the sport has to offer.  This is where the Mid Suffolk Mutts "Pups 10 week development programme" comes into play. This programme can support 10 children to be fully kitted with protective pads (including skates) to try out the sport of skater hockey in a safe, welcoming environment without feeling alarmed by more competent players, and, as always without the money worries that can sometimes alienate the sport.

The 3 main aims of the Pups 10 week development programme:

1. Create an inclusive environment for children aged 10 and under. Including children that struggle with main stream sports or educational environments to learn how to skate and play skater hockey. 

2. Teach teamwork, respect and co-operation through energetic and engaging play.

3. To support a grassroots programme with the aim to keep the sport accessible to new young players in Suffolk.

We are seeking a maximum of £2000 to build our Pups under 10's programme that can support 10 children to be kitted with protective pads, supplied with inline hockey skates and pay for 10 hours hall time whilst being supported by our volunteer coaches. 

We currently have 4 player kit ready to go so the £2000 will be used to to make our wish list come true.

Our end goal is to be able to offer Skater Hockey to all ages and abilities to build a sports family in a county where Skater Hockey has not been explored. To support children to engage in a sport that supports team work, resilience and respect.
