Update on Youth Inclusion Coaching

North Down Hockey Club is preparing to launch a new 4 session coaching programme for young people with learning disabilities and/or learning difficulties

We intend this to become a firm fixture during during every hockey season at NDHC!

Our aim is to make hockey more attractive to and accessible for children who do not feel comfortable or able to join mainstream sessions.

Sessions will be delivered according to the young person’s ability and all participants will be able to develop their own skills at their own pace whilst enjoying group matches.

We will be using a “buddy system” where everyone learns to respect each other, involve others and communicate how to win/lose together!

If you know of a young person, perhaps a sibling or a family member or even a friend of someone who is already playing hockey who you think might enjoy the sessions can you please contact Clare Smith on 07742573665 or by email to

The deadline for making contact is 17 March.
