Making Sport Everyone’s Game is more than just a statement to all of us! Sport at grassroots has so much to offer, at every level. As a Hockey Family member you can help ensure those small steps are taken to make everyone feel welcome.
According to Stonewall UK, gender stereotypes, bullying at school and a lack of visible LGBT role models can create barriers, which prevent young people and adults from being themselves and trying new activities. Below are various ways you, as clubs can help drive inclusion, really making sport everyone’s game!
Make sure your club Equality and Inclusion policies are visible and accessible across your Website/Social Media platforms
Download the #NoBystanders pledge card and get your members to sign it showing their support to saying NO to bullying
Download ‘Make Sport Everyone’s Game’ poster and make it visible across your website and social media platforms, download it HERE
