Our Community Coaching
Havant Hockey Club has been at the centre of the Borough for well over 100 years.
In the 1970s we were one of the first clubs in the country to establish a Junior Section and in the 1990s we extended our coaching support into the Community.
While our Community Programme is currently focused on the engagement of the young, we believe this leads to a healthier community overall. Children grow into teenagers and adults and then to seniors. Havant HC has a well organised and committed membership across all ages. Taking organised sport into the community will result in all these benefits.
Many players who start in our juniors Programme return to the Club and to the Borough following higher education or other work. They even end up bringing their own children back to the club.
Our Community Programme includes a mixture of schools with children from varying demographic backgrounds and an increasing list of schools from different areas in the Borough.
One of our key aims is to make the Havant College pitch more available to children from all backgrounds in the age range of 5-13 years and from right across the Borough. The benefit also extends to older children from 14 years upwards and young adults who help with coaching.
This provides them with a pathway to coach themselves and also to teach, should they wish to pursue that as a potential career. We also have plans to extend our Community work to the disabled and to older and or less mobile people and become involved with other projects outside of hockey, but still under our Club Community banner.
