Warwick Mixed Hockey Club are asking you to help us raise some money to pay inherited debt and keep our amazing club running! This will allow us to practice our ethos of keeping Mixed Hockey an accessible sport for all, and this project will allow us to abolish match fees so that everyone can have the chance to place hockey.
Who are we?
Warwick Mixed Hockey Club is a fun, friendly, and inclusive club based at the University of Warwick. We provide a place for people of all gender identities, academic years and sporting ability, striving to enhance the experience of university for our members. As well as running three training sessions a week and our involvement in league matches, tournaments and friendlies, we host weekly socials, a domestic and an international tour, and numerous charity events throughout the year for our club charity, Coventry Haven.
We're setting up this fundraising page because inherited debt has made it difficult to access various necessities for the club, including transport to matches, coaching, and much needed maintenance and replacements for our kit.
Not only do we require this money to keep the hockey club functioning, we also believe strongly in the accessibility of Mixed Hockey to all students at the university should the wish to join. It is with great regret that we have to charge anything on top of membership for people to take part in matches and training sessions. Extra costs can provide a huge barrier for beginners breaking into sport or Mixed Hockey, which would enable them to enjoy all the benefits of sport at university. They are a great break from studies, improving mental and physical health, and allowing members to socialise with a great group of people several times a week.
As a donor you would be part of giving somebody the chance to be involved in sport at university and allowing the club to continue its functioning and development; even a small amount of money could assist just one student, providing them with a club hockey stick to use at sessions and the oppurtunity to travel around the country for matches. Its a great way to give something to a club that already makes almost 100 student's university experience so special this year, as well as the countless alumni who hold a special place in their hearts for a club that provides so many great memories.
Where will the money go?
Any money we make will go towards the fundamental aspects of our club development: paying for coaching, transporting members to matches and providing as many hockey sticks as possible so that anybody and everybody can get involved!
