    Hurricane Sports delivered a set of sessions at St Johns Primary Academy in Bracebridge Heath. The coaches had excellent control of the children who picked up the skills quickly and the improvement from session to session was obvious.
    I would recommend these sessions to others.

    Hurricane Sports delivered a hockey session at Lincoln Minster Prep School for year 3 and 4 pupils. The staff were excellent and they delivered a fun, action packed session that all the children enjoyed with fun practices that the children had not done before.

    We would recommend these to others.

    Hurricane Sports delivered 5 weeks of hockey sessions for my SEN group. This was absolutely a fantastic five weeks. The coaches were a joy to work with, they were fantastic, caring and encouraging to our students, who all enjoyed the sessions tremendously.

    I wish that we can continue to do this; and next year we will be having new students who I am sure will be as enthusiastic as these group of students were.

    Hurricane Sports have recently delivered three fantastic sessions - Rush hockey, Ashes cricket and Cardio tennis, as part of national school sports week. The coaches were enthusiastic and the students loved the variety of sessions offered. The rush hockey was a particular interest. We would recommend Hurricane Sports and will definately use them again.

    Gareth Short - Lincolnshire Sports Partnership (Monday, 15 April 2013 04:39)

    The Lincolnshire Sports Partnership has been working with Hurricane Sports to co-ordinate the delivery of quicksticks hockey as part of the Sainsbury’s School Games in Lincolnshire.
    Over the last 2 years Hurricane Sports delivery on the School Games programme has been significant to its success. The impact on the schools involved has been great and the participants competing have had a really enjoyable experience. This has allowed the competition to grow in strength and size with more schools taking part in hockey across Lincolnshire, which in turn has added to the quality and standard of performance on the county stage. This standard has been echoed by the professionalism and quality of delivery of which Hurricane Sports work.

    England Hockey Board (EHB) have been working closely with Hurricane Sports for the past 2 years, with the primary aim of increasing hockey provision in Lincolnshire. Hurricane Sports have fully embraced the EHB programmes; namely Quicksticks, In2Hockey, Back to Hockey & Rush Hockey. They have worked extremely effectively to deliver these activities in school, college & community settings, and are providing clear pathways for children & adults to progress within hockey at a level which is right for them. The success of this work is reflected not only by the positive feedback that Hurricane Sports services consistently receive, but also the significant increase in the number of people playing hockey in the area

    Matt worked with a small group of children on our Easter School. He kept the children engaged and they thoroughly enjoyed the session.
    Many Thanks.

    Thank you for arranging the hockey taster session on Thursday. Year 1 really enjoyed the session, as did I. Matt and Alice were fantastic and could communicate to the children just on their level. The session was fun, interactive and exciting with a competitive element.

    We look forward to their after school club.

    The Year 2 group really enjoyed the hockey taster session on Wednesday. The session was well organised and the instructors gave the children very clear instructions to session. It was also clear to see that learning took place during the session.

    Swinderby All Saints Primary School (Monday, 11 March 2013 07:52)

    Hurricane Sports came into the primary school to deliver two taster sessions in quicksticks. Session 1 had 26 children from Year 1/2 and in session 2 there was 32 children from Year 3/4.

    Both sessions went really well, the children responded to the coaches and they all seemed to enjoy their sessions.

    Both teachers thought the coaches had a lovely rapport with the children and both coaches (Matt & Ben) were very skilled in hockey.

    Many thanks again for the opportunity,

    Hockey, historically at our school has never been particularly popular. However for us, the Rush Hockey programme has made an unpopular sport more accessible and enjoyable for children within the central Lincoln area. Also, being a school without an AstroTurf facility the Rush Hockey version can be played with ease on most surfaces and with all age groups. Finally, as a result of its popularity we have continued to run an extremely successful extra -curricular club and have an increase in the number of referrals to outside clubs. Thank you to Matt at Hurricane Sports!

    Hurricane sports and Matt inparticular have given hockey a new lease of life in school. The concept of rush hockey is brilliant and very player-friendly meaning pupils enjoy the sport instead of constantly stopping for a whistle or infringement. Many thanks for the sessions, we would welcome you back into school in the future.

    The Rush Hockey sessions ran by Hurricane Sports at school changed many perceptions of hockey amoungst the children involved. Fun, innovative and refreshing coaching progressed the learning of all who took part and will generate increased participation at the school in the future.

    The rush hockey session delivered by Hurricane Sport to a group of teenagers as part of a fitness programme was superb. Well organised, fun and energetic with excellent coaching which allowed the students to make progress in a sport that many had not played before. Would definitely ask Hurricane Sport back again and recommend to other schools! Thank you to all involved!

    The Rush Hockey programme has been excellant, especially with those Hockey players of a lower ability. As a school would recommend Hurricane Sports to other educational instuitions
