If you are a club that would like to be part of Back to Hockey then keep reading for more information on how to register and set up your programme
Back to Hockey is designed for women who want to come back to hockey having played maybe at school or college. It is based around fun, sociable hockey that gives women the chance to get fitter and enjoy themselves while playing some informal hockey. The programme is recommended to be a minimum of 6 weeks of sessions but ideally 8, mixing in some skills exercises with some gameplay.
There are some great examples of how clubs have set up activity
