Wellington Hockey Club is excited to announce the commencement of a brand new All Abilities Hockey program. Starting on the first Friday of Term 4 (9 October), the program will be run at Gippsland Regional Sporting Complex in Sale as an indoor social hockey program. The program will be held each Friday from 4:15pm – 5pm at a cost of $50 for the term, with all equipment provided.

Since the start of this year, the Wellington Hockey Club has been facilitating weekly All Abilities sessions for people with disabilities. In Term 1 and Term 2 approximately 22 students from the Sale Specialist School learned the skills needed to play hockey, with weekly drills and games.

After the success of the school program, the club is currently running an all abilities program for adults attending George Gray and Wellington Community Connect. Being able to supply all of the required equipment and volunteers/coaches, an all-inclusive hockey environment is provided.

Each Friday after the All Abilities sessions a kids program will run from 5-6pm, followed by sessions for open age 6-6:30pm.
