The Search Is On
Our W1s are now established in South Central Premier Division 1 and are ready to push into the higher tiers.
We seek the right candidate, ideally with National League coaching, or International playing experience, but potential and progression through coaching ranks will be looked upon favourably.
After reaching the Hampshire Cup Finals, two girls' teams making national finals and plans for a second pitch & clubhouse soon to be submitted, it's an exciting time to shape the future of Havant Hockey Club.
The vacancy will be spread across social media and throughout the hockey community, but if you know someone, or someone that knows someone else, who might suit the role, please put them in touch.
Please direct all enquiries to our Performance Director (and Vice Chair), Rajdeep Laly .
Announcement coming shortly regarding a new men's coach....
Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Since we formed the advisory group about a year ago, we have managed to update the Codes of Conduct and the Disciplinary Code alongside to make them much more EDI friendly. Our next steps are to raise individual and Club awareness of all the issues and to ensure that we continue to improve our excellent reputation across the area as a club where all are welcomed and included from day 1.
We are a group of six but we really need as many different voices as possible to guide our practice and to embed the club’s vision into next season and beyond. If you would like to join us, we would love to hear from you, please contact Jan Parry .
If you would like to ask any questions or raise issues in this area please complete this report form and email as instructed in the form.
Three Cheers for Ben!
Congratulations to Ben Hegan who was recently named in the final England U16 Boys squad for 2022, and is pictured below on their Easter Tour of the Netherlands.
Peter Beard, Havant HC Director of Coaching, said "Ben Hegan has long been a player to watch. His ability to eliminate a player in a one v one is impressive however, for me, his consistent, excellent core skills set him apart."
Ben currently plays in the U16s, plays up in the U18s and recently made his debut for the M1s in a Cup game. He is a great asset to the club with a tremendous attitude, and gives back to the community by helping out at the Community Programme camps run successfully for many years for state school children in the local Borough.
