Norton Hockey Club
Norton Hockey club is a family orientated Men’s & Ladies club with players ranging from 6 – 74 years old. We are also the closest hockey club to Venator’s Wynyard site 5 miles away.
We are constantly trying new initiatives to try get juniors & adults into sport running summer schools, training, ‘Back to Hockey’ sessions & have recently started entering school to run coaching & taster sessions. Due to these initiatives the junior section has grown at a fast pace so we are needing funding to provide more equipment for them in particular safety equipment goal keeper kit & face masks which is now an England Hockey requirement.
Not having enough of these items means we have to limit the amount of juniors attending sessions which we know will result in juniors losing interest & stop playing so it’s important we purchase these items. As these items are expensive we are looking for additional funding to help pay for some of these & being successful in Venator’s community funding will be a massive help to the club & our junior section.
Our recent successes are – being nominated by England hockey in the top 8 clubs of the year in all of England for all the initiatives we have put in place to encourage players of all ages into the sport. Also our Men’s Over 40’s team reaching the final of England Hockey’s National cup.
