Flyerz Hockey is coming to London Wayfarers Hockey Club. Flyerz Hockey is the name for disability inclusive hockey across the UK. It concentrates on having fun, learning new skills, making friends and promotes an active and healthy lifestyle.
London Wayfarers Hockey Club are starting a new section in early September 2020 (date tbc) for 11-19-year olds that provides hockey sessions for people with pan-disabilities and involves a variety of activities, exercise and most importantly fun. There is absolutely no hockey experience needed, all you need to bring is enthusiasm.
What is Flyerz Hockey
Flyerz Hockey started in 2012 alongside London hosting the Paralympics. The provision of Flyerz Hockey is supported by Access Sport and England Hockey.

How to get involved
We will be running the London Wayfarers Flyerz sessions every other week throughout the school year (September to July). The sessions will be held at St Francis Xavier 6th Form College (SFX), 10 Malwood Road, Clapham South, SW12 8EN. It is a private pitch with great access. Clapham South tube station is nearby and there is parking available next to the pitch.
There is absolutely no hockey experience needed and we welcome anyone to come along, get to know us and have some fun. If you are interested in joining or would like more information about our sessions please email [email protected]
We are providing taster sessions for players to try hockey which will involve one on one coaching and an opportunity to meet new people. We provide all the equipment and anyone is welcome from ages 11-19. However, if you are a little older or a little younger, contact us, and we will do our best to get you involved.
Volunteers are key to this programme and we would love for you to join our London Wayfarers Flyerz team. We are looking for volunteers as coaches, first aiders, carers, fundraisers and anyone handy with their hands. Also any of our junior members looking for their DofE or Sports Leader volunteering are very welcome! We are providing workshops to support you and in return would really appreciate your support in making Flyerz Hockey at London Wayfarers Hockey Club a success. Please email [email protected] if you would like to volunteer.
