Rush Hockey sessions are starting at Lincoln Christ Hospital School on Tuesday 3rd July.

Managed by Sport England and delivered by Active Lincolnshire Partnership, Sportivate funds sport sessions to encourage teenagers to take part in sport.

Lincoln Roses Hockey Club is running an 8-week programme for people aged 14+ to come and enjoy pay-as-you-play sessions that will increase participation rates in hockey around the Lincoln area.

Gary Johnson from Lincoln Roses Hockey Club said: “The Sportivate funding will enable the club to market a new England Hockey initiative, which will attract new members to the club and therefore more people back into hockey. The funding will also increase the coaching opportunities for current club coaches, thus helping the club improve its already sound coaching structure”.

Rush Hockey is a less time-consuming format of the game that does not require club membership or commitment to regular training. It is hoped that after a number of weeks teams can be formed and leagues will then take place. After the 8 weeks, participants may want to join the Lincoln Roses Hockey Club junior or adult programmes.

The sessions start at Lincoln Christ Hospital School on Tuesday 3rd July from 7pm – 8.30pm and cost £2 per person per session.
