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.
In partnership with Access Sport, London Wayfarers Hockey Club started a new programme in early September 2020 for 8-25 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.
