Player Pathway

Posted by Charlie Lankfer on 18 June 2019

Dear Player - Parent,


Further to my email at the close of the 18-19 season. It is great to see that some of the ladies / parents and young Pelicans have joined in the fun summer Tuesday sessions trying a range of different sports, coordinated by our very own Tracy Bower.  The Mens section also have training on a Wednesday evening with the summer not so competitive ethos in mind. Make the effort to attend - You may just enjoy it. #BringAFriend #AskSomeOneToGoWithYou.


Since the the release of the Norfolk Hockey 2019-20 Development Centre - summer activity; 173 players have enrolled, booking 550 sessions.  16 of these are young Pelicans taking part in the U12G, U13G, U14G, U16G, U17G, U14B and U16B age groups.


It would be great to see some more players take their first steps onto the EHB Player Pathway by enrolling onto the summer sessions and follow in the footsteps of previous and current players that have progressed through The Player Pathway;  Poppy Beales U17G current Bury PC player, Sam Phillips and James Kerry current U17B Bury PC players. (Good luck from all at PHC hoping you make selection to Saxon Tigers after all your hard work and dedication.) #BeTheBestYouCan


The Development Centre is open to the following age groups determined by year of birth and not school year;


2008 - U12     /    2007 - U13    /    2006 - U14    /    2005 - U15     /   2004 - U16    /    2003 - U17


Again if you are unsure if you are suitable then please ask your Pelicans coach from last season. Players that trained on;


Saturday morning - please ask Sean - Jo - Emily - Nick (Apologies if I have missed anyone)

Monday evenings - please ask Paul Swinburn - Sue Picton

Tuesday evenings - please ask Sam Tea / Laura Tea

Thursday evening - please ask Jon Brown - Charlie Lankfer


If as a player you do not have your coaches contact details then please reply to me with your; name, birth year and the day you trained and which team you played in.


[Please would the above coaches contact players that you feel would be suitable and benefit from the additional training - Alternatively send me their details and I will contact them directly]


There are spaces left on most of the sessions (Please check the Norfolk-Hockey website for availability)


If you have any questions then please get back to me and I will do my best to answer.
