EVENTS

The team attend and support local events to showcase how fantastic the sport of hockey is. These events range from freshers fairs in both colleges and universities, school open days, summer fayres, Brownies and Guides groups and we regularly work with the local council to engage hard-to-reach communities.

Just get in touch if you would like us to support one of your events.

We can and have played hockey anywhere...even in a car park. We want to promote the fact that the sport is totally accessible and that you can be very creative in where you play the game!

Our marathon match lasted nearly 3 hours on Preston's Moor Park for Preston City Council's 'Get Together' event.


Since working with Josie and Garstang Ladies Hockey Club, they have been involved in every community event that I have organised within the Preston Sport and Health Team. Their enthusiasm and willingness to be provide taster sessions and activities, often on a Friday evening or Sunday, has had such a positive impact on the community. It provides an opportunity for young people to try a new sport that they may not have had a chance to try before. At every event they have attended I can honestly say they are inundated with people wanting to get involved in games drills and competitions they provide, there are usually queues of people waiting to have a go! The volunteers/coaches who come along always create a fun and welcoming atmosphere, and are fantastic at engaging young people in their activities. They are a great club to work with and it is brilliant to see so many young people getting involved and enjoying hockey. In addition to attending events they are one of the most active clubs to get involved in any local initiatives or projects we are delivering in the community or through social media.
