Welcome to the U8 & U10 Season

I hope you are all well. We have been living through strange times but with all the uncertainty in our lives I’m glad to say that things are still shaping up for a new ‘Minis’ season at Havant Hockey Club.

We have been busy putting a team together for the U8 & U10 team next season:

Jon Keynes will lead the coaching.

With 2 managers supporting:

Louisa Sievers
Alice Lane

We have a few assistant coaches in the mix and are always looking for parents (and others) to get involved on the pitch. If you are looking to become regular, let us know and we can get your DBS and safeguarding in place ahead of time. 

Our start of the season is planned to be on Sunday 13th September on our annual club day. The session will run from 9-30 -11 am, with the pitch open at 9. This will overlap with the U12 session, so we are able to make some presentations from our Covid interrupted season. We hope that there will be refreshments available with club kit / sticks etc available for viewing. More to follow on this nearer the time. 

As well as our blog at http://www.havanthockeyclub, we plan to use a parents Whatsapp group for general comms. Feel free to contact Louisa and Alice (or Jon) ahead of the season with any questions and enquiries and to join the whatsapp groups.  

We look forward to a fun season.


Hockey is back!

Great news – hockey is back on at Havant College!

Jon Keyes will be running a number of his fun-fuelled Hockey Camps over the summer.

Details are all on the club website lots of dates to choose from.

Find out more here and get involved!

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.


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!



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!


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