Outcomes & Benefits

The key outcomes and benefits of In2Hockey are:

  • It provides progressive and adaptable versions of the game which can suit differing levels of ability and experience
  • It will increase hockey participation and retention levels by helping to ensure that young players are exposed to the right level of the game at the right stage of development, and therefore experience higher levels of enjoyment and success
  • By reducing stoppages, maximising playing time and involvement, and minimising risks it creates an environment in which young players can develop and experience an enjoyable, safe, fast and flowing game of hockey
  • It helps young players develop essential, transferable physical skills as well as teamwork skills, leadership skills, independent learning skills, social interaction skills, sportsmanship and fair play
  • It enables deliverers of differing experience levels to access relevant support materials to assist them with the delivery of quality hockey sessions in a school and club environment (including PE lessons, after-school clubs and club training sessions)
  • It removes some of the barriers that have traditionally prevented secondary schools from delivering hockey
  • It is aligned with the England Hockey player syllabus, and links in to the Player Pathway for those players who choose to take their game to the next level
  • It is aligned to the England Hockey Competitions Framework, so appropriate competitive opportunities are available for all levels of ability and experience
  • It helps to provide increased volunteering opportunities for adults and young people within the areas of delivering, officiating, managing and organising
