Coaching 2019/20 seasn - Note from Chairman

09 Jul 2019

GXHC – Juniors


In relation to next season, we are delighted to advise that we have now secured both John Shaw and Kalli Tucker to be our coaches.  These are two of the best coaches in the south of England and we are very lucky to have secured their services for another year. 


Next season, John will be running the Thursday evening session between 8-9:30pm together with other volunteers, whereas Kali will handle the coaching on the Friday evening for the younger juniors between 5:15pm-7:15pm.  We have all had the opportunity to enjoy coaching from both John and Kalli and I am sure next season will be as successful as the last few years and look forward to seeing you all on either Thursday or Friday. 


I am pleased to say that a number of volunteers have kindly come forward to help with the juniors for next season, for which we are most grateful.  We are currently confirming match managers and looking at precisely which teams we will put out next season.  Adult Hockey members are going to be encouraged to provide support at matches on a rota basis.


It will be necessary for an increase to subscriptions for next season.  These have not been raised for a number of years and we are less than other clubs in the area.  The plans is that these will increase to £120 for Juniors and the appropriate forms are being amended and will be available for 1st September.  We should be most grateful for your early completion of these and payment by bank transfer if at all possible, as this is very important to the finances for the club at the start of the season. 


We look forward to another successful season next year and to seeing as many of you on Thursday and Friday evenings and for matches at the weekend.
