Schools Programme

Alex-Danson-Schools

Over 2500 primary school children have engaged in the Alex Danson Hockey Academy in partnership with the Olympic gold medal winner.

Most children are not introduced to hockey until secondary school, with the exception of unihoc at school years 5 & 6. Through this partnership, Everyone Active and Alex Danson have engaged children at a much younger age in the sport, with the hope they will continue playing throughout their lives and really drive and sustain the legacy created by Team GB’s Women’s hockey gold medallists at the Rio 2016 Olympic games.

Everyone Active and the Alex Danson Hockey Academy deliver a high quality service of hockey provision within schools, using hockey sessional coaches’ who have been trained and approved by Alex Danson to guarantee that children benefit from high-quality training.

You and your school are invited to take part in a fantastic schools package to get children more active, engage with parents and give teachers the confidence they need to deliver high standard hockey sessions. Everyone Active will work with the school to create a bespoke package suitable for your schools needs and include the following opportunities:

  • Afterschool delivery
  • Hockey festivals with other schools
  • Upskilling teachers to deliver high-quality PE lessons during curriculum time through CPDs
  • PE Lesson & PPA support/cover
  • Officiator training
  • Support for all hockey-related queries, including session plans, marketing etc.
  • Community outreach support with parents
  • Designated coach and support staff
  • Alex Danson Hockey Camps run during holidays within Everyone Active centres and school settings
  • Opportunities to meet Olympic athlete Alex herself, and other GB coaches and players.
