Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something! Can you offer a few hours a month to help the club?
As the season starts to draw to an end, we are reminded of the work and efforts of our volunteers to make our club the best it can be. As a club of 24 (yes, 24 and growing!) playing teams and 9 regular training sessions, we rely on volunteers to make sure our club runs like clockwork.
Whether you’re a player, parent or supporter, if you can offer just a few hours a month then we’d love to have you on board.
There are lots of opportunities to get involved, with three new and exciting opportunities focusing on developing the club!
If you’d like to get more information about any of the following positions or talk through volunteering with the club further, feel free to contact Bella on 07528186165 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Junior Team Managers
The junior programme is growing again this season as we introduce an U18 Girls and U16 Boys side into the club. Typical responsibilities include:
- Co-ordinating player availability
- Liaising with the opposition
- Working with the Junior Liaison Officer to make sure that all junior members have registered with the club and any venue bookings required
- Submitting team sheets/scores (where appropriate)
Both our junior and senior sessions could do with some extra volunteers to help on our Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday sessions.
- If you’d like to assist at any sessions we can support you to become qualified on the 1 day course “Introduction to Hockey Coaching”
- If you’d like to take a more active role in coaching, with the ability to lead sessions then we can help with becoming qualified in the “Session Coaching Award”
If you’re interested in becoming a club umpire, then we can help with finding you a level 1 umpiring course. The course is only a day and you can get involved in umpiring straight away (or when you’re ready!). Once you’re comfortable, then the club will help you through your assessment if you’d like to umpire at a higher level.
