About us

Our hockey team, the UK Lions has been drawn from Flyerz Hockey Clubs across the country.   Flyerz Hockey is disability hockey, the emphasis is on inclusion, participation and  having fun, in Europe its called Para Hockey.

UKLions will be one of  12 Teams from across Europe, all with players with intellectual disabilities, all battling it out in 3 divisions to become European Champions this August.  The Euro ParaHockey Championships are happening alongside the mainstream Championships and our closing ceremony will be centre stage on the Championship pitch bringing the joy of ParaHockey to the main stadium.

 Why we need your support

We need to raise funds to help make our players dream of representing  their country become reality. They are all bursting with pride and full of ambition to bring home a medal.   

We need financial support towards players tournament fees, team strip, goalie kit, travel and accommodation and insurance as some of our players also have epilepsy and need expensive specialised cover.

Why are we doing this?

Our players inspire us every day with their determination, their fantastic sportsmanship, their love of hockey and  sheer joy at being part of a team.  Playing Hockey has had a significant impact on their lives in terms of developing new sporting skills and greater confidence, building social skills and importantly creating new friendships and a sense of belonging. 

Please help us give these awesome hockey players the opportunity and experience of a lifetime, to represent the UK and to play at the international level.

Many thanks.
