To get more young girls playing team sports, England Hockey is delivering a free introductory training workshop to engage teachers in Havering on March 20.

The free workshop will run at Hall Mead School, Upminster from 10am until 1pm and be delivered by fully-qualified coaches, as part of an inspiring initiative to engage girls in sport, TeamUp.

The three-year initiative developed by the England & Wales Cricket Board, England Hockey and England Netball, is designed to maximise the legacy of three consecutive home women’s World Cups from 2017-2019, and give seven to 13-year-old girls across the country a chance to play team sports.

In May 2017, TeamUp was awarded over £650,000 by Wembley National Stadium Trust (WNST) to extend the initiative within the London boroughs and provide local delivery support for schools and opportunities for young girls to participate in sport.

The introductory hockey teacher training workshop is being run through the initiative as a result of the extra funding and teachers will get:

*Ideas and tips on delivering fun and engaging sessions;

*Confidence in planning safe and fun sessions that encourage implicit learning;

*Information about equipment and resources which make session delivery simple;

*A grasp of hockey in its current form and how it can be played at any level.

Jo Duff, participation programmes manager at England Hockey, said: “Last academic year we launched free teacher training nationally and provided training to over 750 teachers. Based on the initial success and to celebrate the Vitality Women’s World Cup being hosted in London this summer we are looking to train 2018 teachers in total by next December.

“The workshops will be delivered by England Hockey tutors and are open to any primary or secondary school teachers who are looking for easy to use ideas to deliver fun and engaging hockey sessions.”
