Men’s Preseason

Men’s pre-season will be taking place on Friday 23rd and Friday 30th August. 7pm-8.30pm at Hailsham Community College. New players always welcome. Contact us for more information. To note this replaces the mixed Fri-Yay hockey as both adult sections have a weekly session by this point.

Ladies Preseason and Back to Hockey

There will be a combined ladies preseason and Back to Hockey session this August. All current and new players are encouraged to attend. Those new to hockey or very rusty will be able to have coaching in a smaller group. Those with more experience and current members will start preseason training at these sessions. Ideally come to all sessions but if you can only make some or one then it is fine to attend as and when you can.

Wednesday 21st and 28th August 19.30-21.00 at Hailsham Community College.

If you have any questions or need to borrow a stick or shin pads then please email in advance:

Back to Hockey is an England Hockey initiative. For a flavour of what to expect check out this video:

Josh Gets World Cup Experience

Hailsham’s Josh Pinard continues to rack up the umpiring experience points having been selected for the young umpires pathway last year. Josh headed to the Women’s World Cup to watch the games and then to be set through his paces with video analysis of the games. Josh then travelled to Derby to umpire the Youth Regional games. A rapid rise in 3 years since he did his initial umpiring course. Expect to see Josh continue his progression in the officiating world.
If you are interested in umpiring then a course is coming up on the 9th September at Bede’s Senior School, Upper Dicker. You can sign up by clicking here.
