On behalf of Tawa Hockey Club we wanted to say thankyou again for the funding that Trust House provided to cover a large amount of the coaching costs this year.
We are a small amateur field hockey club based in Porirua, Wellington who’s primarily focused on supporting, strengthening and promoting hockey in our community. Our vision is seeing more kids and adults enjoying hockey and having a life-long love of the game.
Trust House Foundation grant funding has enabled us to have coaches in each of our amateur teams, which has directly seen us increase our membership numbers/direct participation. Having more focused coaches has also improved the enjoyment levels of our players, with more structured systems and processes in place.
Opportunities are created for the community to be involved with the club as a player, supporter, umpire, manager of coach. Having stronger systems and processes in place also gives us greater confidence to grow the club and offer player opportunities to everyone in the community. For us this means adding a women’s team in 2019.
