The research reveals that 9 out of 10 adults who played sport as a child encourage their children to be active now, with 65% of adults who didn’t play sport as a child saying they still encourage their child to play sport now.
23% of adults had a sporting role model as a child and 87% of them were active throughout their childhood, and taking a lead from their parents, over a quarter of children (26%) today have a sporting role model.
The research also found that over half a million children want to be a hockey player when they grow up.
“When I grow up, I just want to be like Sam Quek,” exclaims one of the girls after playing alongside British Gold medallist for Hockey, Sam Quek who is giving young children a chance to learn hockey skills and see her in action.
Teaming with Sun-Pat Peanut Butter, Sam is offering young hockey enthusiasts a chance to fuel up and stay active during the Easter holidays. Children aged 6-13 year old can enter for a chance to win a free hockey lesson.
With the research showing that 61% of Brits struggle to find activities to entertain their child during the Easter school holidays, enjoying a game of hockey with Sam Quek could be the perfect solution.
