iKnow: How hockey clubs can help change lives!
How clubs can proactively use hockey as an intentional tool to achieve both increased participation and wider social outcomes.
- Did your club take part in Scottish Hockey’s Club Pledge programme over lockdown?
- Did it have a positive impact on your club and links with the wider community?
- How can you build on some of this work?
Evidence shows that being active brings about positive changes beyond participation and can impact positively on the health and wellbeing of individuals, on their skills and learning, and on communities, ensuring a more inclusive and healthier nation.
Sporting and non-sporting organisations can proactively use sport & physical activity as an intentional tool to achieve both increased participation and wider social outcomes. These positive changes are most likely to happen if the organisations delivering sport and physical activity demonstrate the following;
- a clear understanding and commitment to the social outcomes the organisation wants to achieve.
- a person-centred approach
- the right staff & volunteers with the right skills set and values
- commitment to working in partnership
- commitment to removing barriers to participation and ensuring equality and inclusion
- commitment to building organisational capacity
- thorough understanding of their community
- This workshop will explore how clubs can develop programmes which not only increase participation but also support wider social outcomes.
Scottish Hockey has launched iKnow month – four weeks of evening online skills and best practice workshops in January.
These workshops will offer members the chance to sharpen skills in governance; workforce development; media; changing lives; good practice; and parental engagement.
