You might be aware that some changes are taking place within England Hockey. One of the biggest is that Avon Senior Committee needs to become a joint Men’s and Women’s Association, by September 2022, as currently Avon is only a Women’s Association.
The Junior section is also changing as England Hockey are introducing a new Talent Strategy in September 2022, with some clubs becoming Academy Centres effectively replacing the current Performance Centres. There is a large volume of information on the England Hockey website which can be found on this link: https://www.englandhockey.co.uk/play/future-talent-strategy.
As the current Senior Committee members are not standing for re-election in order for Avon Seniors and Avon Juniors to continue, I am asking for your help. There are several committee roles which need to be filled and if you are interested in finding out further information, please contact me or Barbara Reynolds (EH).
The England Hockey Player Pathway starts in Avon with the Development Centre and then selected players move onto the Academy Centre. The Performance Centres, which are run by West Hockey, select players from the Academy Centres. Find out more about each stage of the programme here...
