Norton Hockey Club
Votes So Far:
Norton Hockey club is a family orientated Men's and Ladies club with players ranging from 4 - 72 years old, having a large junior section, senior teams, development teams and a veteran’s team so hockey is available for people of all ages and abilities within the local community.
With all the hard work and dedication of the club and our coaches running Back to hockey sessions, coaching in local schools, taster sessions etc the club grew at a phenomenal rate pre Covid in particular the junior section. England Hockey recognised our hard work and contribution to the sport by awarding Norton Hockey Club 'England’s Club of the Year' out of nearly 900 clubs in the country. Which is an amazing achievement for a North East club.
With the growth of the club in particular our juniors 16-10 year olds and younger juniors 5-9 year olds we want to to continue to develop them and keep them engaged in sport. For this we need to purchase additional equipment eg special younger junior sticks, balls, bibs, small portable collapsible goals for mini games. Some parents are also keen to join in with their children during these sessions so some equipment for them to lend would also be of great benefit.
Like most sports clubs we went through difficult times during Covid, but we managed to keep our juniors engaged and keen to play hockey again. By providing them with the above equipment this will help them continue to enjoy hockey and exercise.
