Project dates

Access Sport’s Flyerz project targeted young disabled people in England and Wales who face the additional challenge of growing up in poverty, providing them with inclusive hockey activity. Currently, there is no formally-recognised Disability Hockey code (it is not, for example, a Paralympic Sport) so Flyerz had great potential to open new doors and change perception.

Project aims

  1. Deliver inclusive hockey sessions where disabled and non-disabled participants can play together
