Just the ticket - golden chance for youngsters to receive free coaching

5 months ago By David Chappell

BHHC launches initiative to attract local primary school children to hockey

The city's most promising sporting primary school boys and girls are being offered the chance to receive free hockey coaching from a renowned international coach later this summer thanks to a new initiative by Brighton and Hove Hockey Club.

All primary schools in Brighton and Hove will be asked to identify their three best potential hockey players in years five and six and give them a "golden ticket" under a scheme run by BHHC and the City Council.

The lucky students will hand their golden ticket to their parents, who will register them with Wendy Russell, Junior Development Officer and Senior Junior Coach, and attend the coaching day at Blatchington Mill on September 3 from 9am to 3pm.

The coaching will be overseen by Jon Royce, the former Great Britain women's head coach and now coaching consultant at BHHC.

It is all part of BHHC's drive to offer young people the opportunity to try a new sport and develop their skills in a flourishing community club. Brighton and Hove Hockey Club currently has a burgeoning youth section of 200 boys and girls from the ages of four to 16 training and playing in teams. The club also runs eight men's and seven women's teams, with the men's first XI playing at National League level and the women's senior XI in the South League Division One.
