I hope you’re well.
I am wondering if you’d be able to help me.
I work for a company called Activate Camps who run Coaching and Childcare camps Nationwide. We’re running a Hockey Masterclass camp at Oundle School this October Half term.
Please see the link below about the camp:
I am wondering whether you’d be able to put me in touch with the best person to discuss advertising the coaching opportunities we have. We’re looking for 2 qualified Hockey coaches/Players who have had vast playing experiences and would like to get involved with coaching on the camp at Half term.
Camp: Hockey Masterclass
Location: Oundle School
Dates: 22nd to 24th October 2018
We’d require all staff members to have a current DBS.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

From Andy Dale-
I have arranged a series of Forums for clubs to attend on the subject of how clubs can grow their membership outside of their traditional offering. We are calling these the “Third Way” after the more traditional First (growing Saturday membership), Second, (Growing the number of juniors at a club).
This comprises alternative formats of the game such as:-
- Back to Hockey
- Walking Hockey
- Small sided Games
- Mixed Ability Hockey
On the evening I would like to discuss each of the above formats, where they have worked before, why you would do them, what club’s thoughts are on doing this and barriers to doing so.
Graeme from Northamptonshire Sport will be attending to discuss how similar initiatives have worked locally and signpost us to organisations that can cater for the above interest groups.
Clubs that attend the forum and successfully launch one or more of these formats will receive a bursary of £300 to support the launch of the project.*
*subject to successfully running 10 weeks of sessions or 4 masters midweek matches, (reasonable proof required).
Can you confirm a few key members of the club can make this please?

My name is Ian Knight and some of you may know me as I was with Wellingborough for a number of years. I’m wondering if you could pass my details onto the County Ladies Hockey Clubs, as I’m available for coaching this season.
I’m a level 2 Coach and have DBS and Safeguarding up to date. I’ve also attended Coaching For Talent and disabled hockey courses.
I’ve been coaching mainly for about 30 years whilst still playing. At present I’m coaching the County Under 16 girls, the post I’ve been doing for two years so far.
I’ve also been coaching the University of Warwick men’s team for the last three seasons.
In my past I’ve coached at Northampton and Wellingborough and also many more events for England hockey.
I supply all coaching kit, balls, bibs and cones. I hope I can be of assistance to a Club or Team this season. Please contact me. Thank you
England Hockey have updated their website with Level 1 Umpire Courses. Please click on the link and arrange a course via England Hockey direct. Thank you.
Northamptonshire Sport are going to be running a time to listen (club welfare officer) course in September – All clubs who have under 18 players need a Welfare Officer, the role isn’t too onerous and helps club keep an eye on how its looks after its junior members.
Here are the details :
19/9 6.30pm – 9.30pm
Kettering Town Harriers
You will need to contact Stuart Thomas at England Hockey beforehand and he will send you a copy of our policy and procedures. If you also send Stuart your certificate afterwards and he can update the clubs records on the EH database so they know you have a welfare officer.
