Partnership to give student players access to top CCHC coaches and facilities.
National league stars of the future could be nurtured in Cambridge thanks to a partnership between one of the city’s hockey clubs and Anglia Ruskin University.
The link-up will provide opportunities for talented student hockey players to access top facilities and coaching provided by Cambridge City Hockey Club (CCHC), with scholarship options from Anglia Ruskin on the table for outstanding individuals.
In turn, CCHC’s men’s, women’s and under 16’s teams’ shirts will be sponsored by Anglia Ruskin for the remainder of the 2014/15 season and the club will enjoy access to highly-rated student players.
CCHC will offer club membership to all Anglia Ruskin University Hockey Club players and provide two qualified coaches to oversee taster sessions and trials at the start of each academic year.
The parties are working in collaboration to offer a number of hockey scholarships on a yearly basis, with successful applicants going on to receive up to £1,000 of support per year for up to three years from Anglia Ruskin, free club membership from CCHC and a host of other benefits including access to coaching and umpire qualifications, scholar seminars and workshops.
