Shirt/kit Sponsor

We run seven other senior sides every week and five junior sides. Shirt sponsorship is available for these sides via a sleeve logo on playing shirts, training gear and other Club clothing (hoodies, rain jackets etc)

Junior Development Programme

Whitchurch Hockey Club is committed to junior development. The junior members of our Club are the lifeblood of tomorrow. We are keen to turn these youngsters into the 1st-teamers of tomorrow. ven if they don't want to play top-levell hockey we are committed to providing a fun environment for them to enjoy hockey. Our Youth Chair Chris Despres and his team of junior coaches and parents dedicate a huge amount of time and effort to making the programme run effectively. Some support from a commercial organisation would go a long way to easing the financial situation.

Community Hockey Hook-up

A team of Whitchurch Hockey Club coaches is working with Sport Cardiff and primary schools in Cardiff to promote hockey and get kids active. The schools receive an eight week allocation of coaching, free goalkeeping kit, sticks and balls. The scheme is proving extremely popular and thanks to support from Sport Wales, Julian Hodge Bank, SRK Exploration and Timto, we have been able to make the first phase possible.  We are looking for additional coporate sponsors to continue this worthy programme.
