Why Partner with BISHA?
Be part of our #HockeyFamily - align on values!
Be part of a wider family that cares for each other and play a key role in our hockey family, helping us shape the sport for our future generations. We are sure this will be socially rewarding and demonstrate your brands values and social responsibility. The British Inline Skater Hockey Association (BISHA) believe that family, and community should be at the centre of what we do. As with any family the youngest and newest in sport are the focus of our attention as we try to nurture them through to adolescent and give them every opportunity to succeed and have fun along the way. The adults and veterans who have skated the path are encouraged to give back to the sport so that collectively we build the sport together and grow and develop as one family.
Support #Street2Elite development - solve a social issue!
Help people develop and live a heathy and fulfilling life by supporting us to create opportunities to play at every level and allow all our members to benefit from those opportunities that may otherwise not be available. This would allow your brand access to supporting kids and street development through to elite level and national team programmes. British Inline Skater Hockey was officially recognised as a UK Sport in the 1980’s and was formerly known as Street Hockey played in Inner Cities. As the sport evolved so did the International Organisation (IISHF) and since the 1990’s BISHA have had Great British squads compete at International Level collecting many medals at all age groups. Whilst we are very proud of our national teams, we equally believe strongly that the street is where it’s at! Street to us, refers both to our heritage and our youngest and newest members adopting the sport in it’s purest and most humble form. The ball gives our sport the unique ability to be enjoyed in parks, car parks, playgrounds, and any appropriate street. We encourage all levels of participation and are working hard to expand our offering from street to elite levels.
Raise Brand Awareness through the #SkaterHockey community – access a wider customer marketplace!
