Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in partnership with Ulster Hockey has organised a free “Come and Try It” hockey programme at the Lisbellaw Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) for 7 to 15 year olds.

The five-week programme, which will be delivered by Ulster Hockey coaches, starts on Wednesday 4 November 2015 at 6.30 pm.  The one-hour sessions will continue to take place every Wednesday until December 2.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“These sessions are a wonderful way to try a new sport or to develop existing hockey skills and techniques in a fun and safe environment, through specialised coaching instruction from Ulster Hockey coaches.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is delighted to work in partnership with Ulster Hockey to provide this opportunity to our young people in the Lisbellaw area.”

Laura McDermott from Ulster Hockey, said:

“Ulster Hockey are delighted to be launching the Hockey Community Hub programme at the Lisbellaw MUGA, in partnership with Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Enniskillen Ladies Hockey Club. The programme will run over 5 weeks with each of the sessions focusing on learning new skills, teamwork and match practice. It is hoped that hockey in County Fermanagh will be rejuvenated and young people will have an opportunity to try a new sport that they will be hooked on.”

Participation on the programme is free however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
