Volunteers and Sponsors
We are an active, independent and motivated club, of long-standing based at Longsands Academy in St Neots where there is a brand-new latest generation astroturf pitch and great amenities. We are a community-oriented club aiming to provide opportunities for all.
We run the club as unpaid volunteers and we always welcome any help offered with organisation, catering, expertise, kit or funding.
Hockey is the fast-growing participation sport in the UK. At an international level there is a growing following, and the GB teams are progressing steadily up the rankings, with GB women achieving gold at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
In 2012 Hockey was the second best attended event at the London Olympics, creating great opportunities for usin the UK. For the first time ever, our GB Womens team had made the final of the Champions Trophy, and gained a silver medal ahead of Holland and Germany, losing only to Argentina.
Our hockey youth academy has doubled in size on the back of the rising profile of this family-oriented sport. Children from a wide selection of local schools are having fun building the future of the club, employing England qualified coaches. We are affiliated to the England Hockey Board, where we have access to performance coaching as our young hockey players develop their skills.
We also offer a hockey after-school club for all Longsands pupils, participate in the National Under 10, 12 and 14 Competitions, and run a Youth Development Squad as a route for players to progress into our Mens, Ladies, Mixed and (eventually) Veteran teams, which play in leagues mostly across East Anglia.

We are keen to further build links to the community, and are active in the local press, as well as entering competitions, including at a National Junior level.
As a volunteer-based club there is no minimum commitment, team or value required from our sponsors. Contact any club person for a conversation about sponsoring our club.
