CHANGE OF TRAINING DAY to a WEDNESDAY
Welcome to the new season! Training starts week beginning 7th September.
This season, we will continue to run two squads for the Under 16 Boys.
The ‘A’ squad will now train on Wednesdays 6pm - 7:30pm at MHC, coached by Kate Porter and Sam Ward.
The ‘Dev’ squad will train on Wednesdays 6pm - 7:30 pm at MHC, coached by tbc.
Boys who wish to play in the ‘A’ squad should attend on 7th, 14th and 21th September for trials. After these initial sessions, the coaches will select the boys for each squad. There will always be the opportunity to move between squads during the season, as the coaches see fit.
We have entered the England Hockey Cup and the Mercian League and dates of fixtures for both squads will be confirmed on Pitchero shortly.
On Monday 29th August we have entered an ‘A’ team in the Sevenoaks U16 tournament, which will be a great warm-up for the season.
Please take 5 minutes to check that your profile has the correct contact details (email AND mobile phone), date of birth, medical details and parent link. This is to ensure we can contact parents in the event of an accident or emergency at training or matches.
All match information and team selection will be done on Pitchero, and it is your responsibility to set your availability by the given deadlines.
Indoor Hockey tbc for 2016_17 season
Following last season’s fantastic performance at the National finals, we are planning to develop Indoor Hockey further. From October we will be running joint training sessions with Borlase on Fridays, 6pm - 7pm at Desborough School.
Teas and Social Events
We will ask for volunteers to serve teas to visiting teams at our home matches. We are planning a Bowling night in September and a pre-Christmas event in December. Any volunteer helpers will be welcome, but we expect the boys to step up and organise these events themselves!
