What else is happening on the day?

Look out for the following exciting activities:

  • Coaches info session - meet our new Talent Development Manager who will give you a quick overview of how to help develop your players!

If your coach is coming (it can be your parent, teacher, physio etc – anyone that is coaching you or helping you to become a better player – they don’t have to have any formal qualification). Both sessions will be the same so they can choose whichever one fits best with your matches. This will be an opportunity to meet our new Talent Development Manager, Sandra King, and the topic will be ‘How to recognise a talented player, and how to get your player recognised'.

  • Raffle - don't forget to enter the Heathcoat Raffle! Look out for more details on the day!
