Hockey Connect club fundraising website now live


Hi All – during the last few weeks you will have seen, we hope, a link to a hockey fundraising initiative called HockeyConnect. It is run by Ronan Pelow of Corinthians and Douglas Grey, ex-everything to do with Irish Hockey!

The premise of the initiative is to raise funds directly for Hockey Clubs (not the IHA) and to support the growth of our sport in more far-flung or disadvantaged areas in Ireland. It is very much in its infancy but there are already good vibes judging by the comments on the site!

The basic plan is that individuals can sign up for €10pa, or businesses for €150pa, which allows access to a network of hockey supporting persons and businesses who can provide help, services or advice, generally at discounted rates, to other members.

The fundraising element is that your Club (which you indicate at sign up time) has each members’ (individual or business) payment allocated against it and the Club receives 65% of that total back in the playing season (i.e. if 100 PW Members sign up at €10 each, PW will receive €600 of that back within a season). 15% also goes to a club hockey development fund which clubs apply for to support development projects that “fit” with branch plans.

I would urge you to at least have a look at the HockeyConnect website to see what it is all about – it is quite clear and detailed – and consider signing up (I have done so, in case you ask!).”

You can sign up your business now to benefit from belonging to the hockey community in Ireland for a very small outlay which will benefit your club and your business.

Please forward the attached to all your hockey friends/contacts/relatives and encourage them to sign up to – remember this initiative will raise significant funds for Clubs in Ireland – your club.

Early sign up gives 16 month membership – so no renewal until April 2014. That’s great value too.

A personalised membership card will be issued to all individual members

Let’s get this initiative moving – it’s the business – your business.
