Hockey Ireland launches The Big Ask

Hockey Ireland launches The Big Ask, a survey giving the hockey community their say as the new strategic plan gets underway


Dublin, Dec 15: As part of the preparation of its new strategic plan, Hockey Ireland today launched its ‘Big Ask’ hockey survey. Issued to all registered members as well as participants in Ireland’s wider hockey community, this survey is designed to give voice to all involved in hockey.

Through this initial short questionnaire, Hockey Ireland will build important learnings that will form the basis of its new strategic plan intended to cover the period 2024-2030 and planned for launch end Q1 2024. The survey will be followed by further consultation via online focus groups and additional questionnaires for specialist areas.

Commenting on the survey launch, Anne McCormack, Hockey Ireland CEO said:

“We would really like to hear what the hockey community thinks and would ask them to complete our survey and participate in our online focus groups. Their input will provide us with invaluable information as we develop our new strategic plan, setting our direction for 2024 onwards.”

Sue Haslam, Community and Participation Director added:

“We want to hear from as many constituents as possible, the hockey community is wide and varied and it’s important everyone feels they have a voice.”
