2 weeks ago By Shelagh Entwisle

Here's the all important date for the diaries so no one misses out on pre-season or summer hockey planned !

With our Men's and Women's summer leagues in full swing now we have lots of hockey and pre-season sessions planned to get everyone back in tip top condition ready for the 2018-19 League Season starting in September !

Albert Marcano will continue as our overall Lead Performance and Men's 1's coach, we're just completing recruiting a new coach to the club to take up the Ladies 2/3 coaching and club coach role, and Nigel and Mark (Wors)will be doing a switch as Nigel takes on the Men's 2/3's and Mark (Wors) switching to Club Coach. Sav's has been busy working with the Women's 1 on their post and pre-season planning too and Albert and the Men's 1's have also had a post season review too. We're also reviewing how we structure the academy coaching and increasing the support from the core coaching team.
