2015 Club Day - Hockey Fest!
Our AGM took place on Thursday 18th June, and Sheila reviewed last year and talked the members who attended through the first stages of the Club's future vision.
The club continues to coach and develop young talent with great representation at the Somerset JDC training, and both the Men's 1st and Men's 3rd teams had a great season, with both gaining promotion.
The club intends to work to build on this success, based on a number of key objectives:
- Develop performance throughout the club, with particulat emphasis on Men's 1st and 2nd.
- Promote and grow participation in hockey at adult and junior level.
- Develop opportunities for coach and umpire development.
- Continue to develop the social and friendly aspects of membership.
One of the key initiatives for the 2015/16 is the appointment of a professional club coach - Ben Roberts.
Ben will work closely with the Men's 1st and 2nd teams, as well as leading coaching initiatives across the club.
Junior training will move from Sunday morning to Tuesday evening, beginning at 6pm.
Membership subscriptions and match fees will remain unchanged for the coming season.
