Junior Small Group Sessions End on a High!

Junior sessions finished last night after 6 fantastic weeks of getting back to hockey, in glorious sunshine!

The last 6 weeks have seen between 40 and 50 juniors every Wednesday evening getting the opportunity to get back onto a hockey pitch to play and meet their team mates again.

We have been blessed with some fantastic weather and amazing volunteers who have done a great job in coaching and running every session.

Thank you to all our juniors and parents for supporting the sessions and helping us work within the guidelines to make it happen!

We look forward to being back in September on a more normal footing and hopefully a new season to enjoy.

2020 End of Season Awards

A couple more winners were added to the list tonight at the junior small group sessions

Penne Edwards Award – Simeon Field
Stuart Robertson Award – Noah Cooper

Well done to all of the winners – there are still a few more which will be announced over the next couple of days.

2020 End of Season Awards

With the season sadly shortened and the chances of holding an End of Season Party seriously in the balance we decided to start presenting some of the awards for last season.

With the small group sessions proving extremely popular with over 130 members engaging on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings we thought it would be a good idea to present awards to the winners who are attending the sessions regularly.

So….. here we go:

Ladies 1s Winner – Gemma Brown
Ladies 2s Joint Winners – Lisa Morgan and Maree Welch
Ladies 4s Winner – Clare Cooper
Men’s 4s Winner – Ollie O’Hara
Men’s 3s Winner – Ollie Gage
Sue Darch Shield – Alex Orak
Penne Edwards Award – Amy Edwards

Coaching and Training Changes for the 2020-2021 Season

All club members

After careful consideration we have altered the coaching programme for the 2020-2021 season as follows:

TimeTuesdayWednesdayThursday
18:00-19:30U12 & U14 Boys Tom Wigley (U14), Noah Cooper (U12), Morgan Robertson (U12)U12 & U14 Girls Simeon Field (U14) Natlie Jupp (U12)Occasional extra squad sessions and specialist sessions for GK etc.
19:30-21:00Mens 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, U16 Boys
Stuart Robertson, Lewis Birch, Simeon Field
Ladies 3s, 4s, U16 Girls
Amy Edwards, Hilary Andrews
Ladies 1s, 2s, U16 Girls
Jim East

As you will see we are heavily dependent on club players volunteering to coach so we have had to shift the ladies 3s and 4s to achieve this. We do apologise and thank the ladies for supporting this.  

We have moved the Men’s and U12, U14 and U16 boys training due to the links we are developing with Winchester University as this will help increase their participation at training and hopefully throughout our club.

There is an additional session on a Thursday should there be a need for teams to have additional coaching and for specialist sessions for GKs and so on.

Under 16 Girls are able to decide which session they attend based on the senior team they play for and their friendship groups.

We sincerely hope that these changes won’t have a huge impact on you and your family and we look forward to the 2020-2021 season.

Kind Regards

RHC Committee

Blast from the past!

We don’t have many old club pictures but apparently this is the club’s entry into the town’s 1980 bed race! Does anyone recognise the faces?
