Newsletter/Club Survey & New club jackets

Hi everyone,

We hope you’ve all now enjoying being back on the pitch for the remainder of the 2017-18 hockey season!
We’re sending this email as we’ve got a few things to tell you, and we’d also like your feedback…

Firstly, a few dates for your diaries…

24th March – End of Season Do: ‘Awards/Dinner/Dance’

This is for senior players (13+), partners and supporters. Please join us for the evening to celebrate the end of the hockey season, enjoy dinner, awards and then a bit of disco! This will be a ticketed event and will be held in a Whitchurch venue, price will be around £20 and details will be sent out very soon.  It’s really important that we get as many people attending as possible in order to make this event a success, so please keep the date free and dust off your best outfit!

28th April – AGM and Academy Awards (with an intra-club tournament)

This event ran last year and went well, so we’re repeating it this year. We’ll start off with a tournament, then the annual AGM and finally (but most importantly) our Academy Awards. We’ll also organise some food and drinks, making this an all-round fun event to attend.  It’ll be held at SJT. All are welcome.

Feedback needed please…

We would like your feedback on the season so far and ways in which we could improve the club generally. Please use this form to give us your thoughts, and also to confirm whether you will be attending the events listed above. Here’s the link:

(Please note, we’ve also included some questions about certifications – we are in the process of getting our paperwork up-to-date for renewing our club kite mark and any information about YOUR coaching, umpiring, first aid and welfare certifications would be great to get on our register.)

Sponsorship offer…

We have been very kindly offered a £500 kit sponsorship from Grace Berry’s (Ladies 1s) mum’s company which we will be using to subsidise this jacket (shown at the end of the feedback form).  Normally £25, we will offer it for £15 to the first 50 respondents of our feedback survey (who want one of course!).  Please complete the section at the end of the survey form. This offer is initially open to senior and student players currently playing in senior Men’s and Ladies games and we’ll contact you by email to arrange an order.

The closing date for the survey is Monday February 19th 2018.

That’s it for now, please let us know if you have any questions, ideas or want to help out with the running of the club (new committee members & helpers always welcome..) and enjoy the remainder of the season!
