Sefton Council has teamed up with Northern Hockey Club in a bid to try and encourage more young people to take up the sport ahead of this year’s Olympics in Rio.
The two satellite clubs, aimed at young people aged 7-18 years old, are run by qualified and DBS checked coaches and will take place at the recently renovated astro turf pitch in Crosby.
Sessions are £2 per person or free for members and will take place Sundays, 10.30-12pm.
Northern has recently benefited from the installation of flood lights as a result of a successful funding application to Sport England Inspire facilities. This has made hockey and other sports more accessible throughout the year with coaching and games now taking place day and night 7 days a week.
