Active Clubs

Active Clubs

Active Clubs is a new multi-year investment programme developed and administered by Sport Northern Ireland, with funding from the National Lottery Fund.

The aim of the Active Clubs Programme is to ‘support and enable accessible and sustainable participation opportunities through sports clubs’.

The investment programme employs a network of Active Clubs Coordinators to work with identified sports clubs in order to assist them with developing new and innovative interventions aimed at increasing their club membership. The Co-ordinators will also be responsible for creating the potential for the realisation of a range of opportunities for training, learning, education and capacity building for coaches and volunteers.

Ulster Hockey has employed two Active Clubs Co-ordinators covering two distinct geographical areas.

Laura McDermott has responsibility for the northern region of Northern Ireland and Ian Hughes is responsible for the Southern region of Northern Ireland. Both members of staff will work closely with a range of hockey clubs to provide new opportunities to develop hockey and increase membership within clubs within NI.
