HMHC – SUMMER TASTER COURSE

Dear All

The Magpies Youth section is busy preparing for next season with our popular hockey taster sessions for new recruits, both boys and girls, scheduled to take place on Friday 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th June and 7th July from 6pm to 7.30pm. This introduction to hockey is open to current Year 1 to Year 7 pupils and is ideal for those completely new to the sport or those who have limited hockey experience.

Any help club members can provide in recruiting players or advertising the course would be really appreciated.

Copies of the entry form can be found on the Latest News page of the club’s website and I have a pile of these ready for circulation around local primary schools. If you are a local school teacher, TA, parent helper, school governor or parent who can persuade a school to distribute our leaflet please get in touch with me as soon as possible, my email address is: ssmith091.

A supply of leaflets will be available at the youth presentation evening at the clubhouse on Friday 19th May for anyone able to help.

Alternatively an electronic version of the entry form or flyer for the course is available if you can circulate this to any groups that our Facebook page and twitter feeds will not be reaching. Any way let me know if you can help and I can send you whatever you need.

And of course please tell family, friends, neighbours and anyone else you can think of with children current in years 1 to 7. The more interest we can drum up this summer the more will hopefully convert to our regular autumn youth coaching sessions helping to maintain the strength of our youth system.

So if you can help in some way or have any ideas on how I can promote the taster course more widely please get in touch via
email [email protected]
or give me a call on 07800 699074.

Many thanks.

INTRODUCTION TO HOCKEY COACHING

INTRODUCTION TO HOCKEY COACHING

The club will be hosting an ‘Introduction to Hockey Coaching’ course at the end of this season to be run by England Hockey staff coaches.

This will be FREE to club members with the proviso that attendees will be expected to help out at sessions at the club in the future. This undertaking will NOT mean weekly attendance throughout the season but the idea is that if we can build up a larger coaching work force then we will not be relying on the same few in the future.

The course is 6 hours and will be after the end of the regular season.

The actual date will need to be negotiated with England Hockey but we aim to avoid any clashes with cup games; both senior and junior.

Participants will need to be aged sixteen or over (there is no upper limit).
