Amy is a young PE teacher at our school , which is in a deprived area of Morecambe. She has given the pupils at the school opportunities that they would never have dreamed of or aspired to be. She set up a link between the school and a local hockey club and introduced alot of players to the club. Over the last 4 years we have more than 40 pupils at the club who have worked the way through the junior section and are now playing in the ladies teams. Several have gone on to represent the county and regional teams (boys and girls) at various age groups and last year one of them achieved an England trial. Many of our parents have no transport so Amy has taken the players to training and games so that they don't miss out and has managed to secure sponsorship for some of the players. She stands on the sidelines every weekend watching the players and encouraging them. The club has achieved recognition at national level with the juniors taking part in the indoor finals this year. If it wasn't for Amy's commitment and dedication these young people may never have aspired to achieve and they would never have picked up a hockey stick. The legacy she has started is constantly been carried on by her role out of Kwicksticks in the local primary schools and the development of new Young Hockey Leaders every year. She approximately develops 25 new leaders a year. Amy deserves this opportunity as she has made a real difference to the young people in our school and community.
