Player of the Year.
Please ensure you give your vote to your team manager. You can only vote for ONE person in your actual age group, and you must not vote for yourself. The person should be the person who you think has given the most to the TEAM this season in both training and playing in matches not just someone who is your friend.
Development of the junior section.
Slazenger’s junior section has seen it’s membermhip almost double in the last 18 months. Whilst these new members are most welcome it has put a strain on our coaching resource. Also for this season we did not foresee the need to enter more teams in the Yorkshire youth hockey leagues, leading to some of our boys & girls who were ready and able missing out on tournament experience. Shortly seven of our coaching assistants are to complete England Hockey’s level 1 coaching course. This should improve the quality of training Slazenger’s can offer it’s junior membership next season. However for us to be able to commit to running more teams next season and therefore give more children match experience we are looking for willing parents to act as team secretaries or assistant secretaries. Please consider putting yourself forward and get involved with your club. It’s not as hard as you may think, and you may even enjoy it!

The quartet are Lee Secker (U16), Gareth Ventom (U14), Jermane Cockerill and Christopher Wood (U13s) and they were picked after attending four weeks of development training with 30 other players from each age group, with 16 eventually making the cut.
A spokesperson for the Slazenger club said: “All the boys had to prove they had exceptional ball skills and could play in different positions and also play as a team with others they had never played with before.
“A lot of new friendships have been formed through these sessions for the boys as well as some new hockey skills.
“CCC who sponsored shirts for the club’s junior section said they were delighted with the boys’ success and will continue to help and support them in the future.”
