As you know the EIHA has engaged Matt Lloyd and MDSC to provide club support and to work with organisations such as Sport England.
Sport England are really keen to engage with female ice hockey and Matt has had some great success including funding the set-up of the Widnes Wild Women’s team as well as ice time and equipment programmes in Peterborough and Coventry. They have a grant programme called Small Grants which they would like as many women’s teams to apply for as possible and you can click here to download an example of a funding application. Funding is available for ice time, equipment, development and coaches and Matt and his team will complete all the paperwork for you. All the money goes directly to the club however Matt is there to support delivery and end of programme reporting.
