Update from the Scottish Hockey Board
The Scottish Hockey Board has been working to review Scottish Hockey and urges all members to take the chance to share their views in the Scottish Hockey Membership Engagement Project before it closes. The engagement opportunity will close at midnight on Wednesday 10 February, and members can find out more and share their views HERE.
Covid-19 has undoubtedly brought the most challenging set of circumstances sports across the globe have ever faced. Like others, Scottish Hockey has had to work exceptionally hard to adapt to the changing landscape that Covid-19 has brought, which has tested the operational workings and delivery of Scottish Hockey.
While government restrictions have pressed the pause button on life as we knew it, and this includes a pause on hockey activity and play, it has provided an opportunity for the directors of Scottish Hockey to begin the process of carrying out a root and branch review.
Operating under the board there are several committees and directors have been assessing how they are established; performing; and ensuring they are aligned to Scottish Hockey’s strategic plan. Feedback from the Scottish Hockey Membership Engagement Project will also be crucial in the development of recommendations and actions that will lead to a new improved Scottish Hockey for the future.
You may also have seen some of the great work being delivered by Scottish Hockey staff recently.
iKnow month saw 220 people sign up for the 15 online learning and skills development sessions Scottish Hockey delivered over January.
January also saw the launch of the BRAVE Performance Blueprint, which sets out clearly the vision for performance hockey in Scotland. We’re delighted that both online forums to accompany the launch were fully booked – with 100 coaches finding out more about the blueprint, and getting involved with BRAVE.
The exciting start to the year also saw the launch of an improved accreditation system, supporting clubs to offer a safe enjoyable experience. 31 clubs signed up, and supports our strategic target of having 75% of the membership in accredited clubs by summer 2022.
While Scottish Hockey staff members continue to deliver projects such as these, they do so operating around furlough days in these challenging times, but are still available to support clubs and members across the sport.
Don’t forget, the engagement opportunity will close at midnight on Wednesday 10 February, and members can find out more and share their views HERE.
Make sure you take part, and help build for the future.
