Newark Hockey Club Summer Coaching

We are delighted to be able to offer members the opportunity to participate in small group coaching sessions over the summer.

These sessions will be run in accordance with England Hockey guidelines to ensure the safety of players and coaches.


We are grateful to The Magnus School for offering us access to the pitch, but please be aware there is no access to toilet facilities on site. We are also indebted to our team of volunteer coaches who are giving up their time to enable us to offer this opportunity to our members. Please can you read the important guidelines below and if you have any questions please contact either Shanade Bradley ( or Ann Crockett-McLean (


Each session will last one hour with 15 minutes between to ensure social distancing can be maintained.

Each session costs £3 and needs to be pre-booked and paid for.

We can accommodate up to 20 players per session, across four groups of five players.

All players aged 13 and over are able to attend the senior coaching sessions on Tuesday evening (men), Wednesday evening (women), Saturday morning (mixed).

All players under 13 should attend on Sunday mornings.
