Minis Next Season – Coach Jon

We also have some more good news, Coach Jon Keynes has agreed to step in to become the Head Minis Coach for next season.

Excellent news for the minis to keep the momentum of our top quality coaching support we’ve had over the past years form Tom and James.

I know most of you know Jon, but please join me in thanking him for giving up his time to support the minis.

Look out for more info and news from Jon pre-season.


YOUR MINIS NEED YOU!!!

Finally i’m still looking for a volunteer to be the minis manager for next season. I’m stepping down (across?) to be the U12s boys manager for next season as my son is moving up. I need someone to handover the minis to!

This is not an onerous role and could be split between more than one person.

The role involves opening up and closing the pitch for training, organising the festivals and keeping your fellow parents informed. I’ve massively enjoyed helping with the minis, it’s incredibly rewarding.

I’ll obvisouly help get any willing volunteers setup with everything they need.

If i don’t get a volunteer then i’ll have to discuss with the club what the options are, certainly we’d have to step out of all festivals for U8s and U10s and from a safeguarding perspective it might mean we can’t run minis at all on a sunday. Not something any of us want!

Please help!

YOUR MINIS NEED YOU…

All Hockey Cancelled :(

Hi all,

In line with guidelines from England and Hampshire Hockey, all hockey training and matches are now cancelled for the rest of the season. 😦

There will be no minis training at Havant College for the rest of the season and the Gosport festival is cancelled.

Obviously i’m incredibly disappointed for the players and coaches leaving this season and the fact we won’t be able to do our end of year prize giving.   Personally it’s not the ending to my minis manager career that i’d have hoped for!

However we need to keep perspective, Hockey, minis and the club will continue and we as a community will beat this virus.

I want to thank you all for the commitment, support and encouragement you have shown the Minis section this season.

Come on Havant!

Neil

p.s. don’t forget we still need a minis manager(s) next season!  any volunteers let me know.

Storm Dennis – Training Cancelled / U12s taster sessions

I’m not sure we’ve ever had to cancel consecutive training sessions before!

In consultation with the club and coaches we have decided to cancel training this Sunday.

This is due to a severe weather warning from the met office on Sunday Morning for Storm Dennis.  Obviously child (and parent!) welfare is our main concern and playing hockey in torrential rain and gale force winds is no fun for the kids and potentially dangerous.

We will be back at some point! (i hope!).

U12s Taster Sessions

In more positive news we have organised taster sessions for those children looking to move up to the U12s next season.

These sessions are for all children currently in year 5 moving to year 6 in September 20.

You will get to chance to meet the coaches, managers and players from the U12s teams (most of whom you’ll know anyway) and have a training session to see how it all works in preparation for the new season in September.

We have two taster sessions planned, feel free to go to one, both or none!

  • Friday 6th March – 1800 – 1930 at Havant College
  • Friday 13th March – 1800 – 1930 at Havant College

In the new year U12s Boys and Girls training takes place every Friday 1800 – 1930 at Havant College with matches over the weekend.

Do let me know if your child is planning to attend one of the sessions so i can make sure they are well looked after.  I will also be there for both sessions as a point of contact.

thanks

Neil

 

 

 

 

 

 

Petersfield & Havant Training Cancelled Tomorrow

Hi minis parents,
We have taken the difficult decision this morning to cancel minis training at Havant College tomorrow after being informed that the Petersfield hockey tournament is cancelled and all other Havant  junior games are cancelled due to storm Ciara.
The advice from the met office is do not travel unless absolutely necessary.  We appreciate this is very disappointing but everybody’s safety is our primary concern.
enjoy a lazy Sunday morning!
