This past post-season period has seen the further expansion of our Diversity and Inclusion Program to include an ‘Access All Abilities’ program. In conjunction with Hockey Victoria and Scope we ran an introductory modified skills program through October which introduced our sport to a dozen or so adults with a disability.

Thank you to Julie-Anne Sheehan and Brendan Sheehan for their organisation and delivery of the program

Michaela Cook from Hockey Victoria noted that “I am personally delighted to see Footscray Hockey Club and Scope working together to provide an inclusive and welcoming experience, offering participation pathways to all members of their community, no matter their background or ability.”
