Inclusion policy

The Harewood Hockey Club has an understanding of how the New Zealand Disability Strategy, SPARC No Exceptions Policy and the Christchurch Physical Recreation and Sport Strategy can assist with the inclusion of people with disabilities into physical activity and sport.

The Harewood Hockey Club will endeavour to integrate people with disabilities into their environment and assist them to participate in club activities.

Consideration must be given to safety and the fact that many teams are selected on the participant’s ability to play hockey. Our Mini Hockey is where children with disabilities are most likely to be included.
