Training resumes Monday 4 January

2 years ago By Stuart Burnside

Patience is a virtue

*Update - the John Orwell is not ready yet. All good things come to those who wait, but for now, training will be unchanged from the pre-Christmas schedule. We will update you further once we have access and can implement the below.*

Hi all

We presently expect the John Orwell project to complete in early December. The full club committee (i.e. including all captains, etc.) met last night to discuss how best to use the John Orwell alongside Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre. This represents the conclusion of many hours of discussion and several exec meetings prior, and is a plan for the remainder of the season only. Plans for next season will be on the agenda for the AGM.

Christmas break

W/com 30 November is our last training week, so Thursday 3 December will be the last training session for most teams. If teams are playing a slip fixture on 12 December, we will consider ad hoc training sessions.

Training will resume w/com Monday 4 January.

Changes to Training

  • L6-7 and M8-X will train at John Orwell, on a Wednesday, 20:30-22:00, half pitch each. No changes to coaching staff.
  • M4-7 as a consequence will have more pitch space, continuing in their existing slot at Lee Valley.
  • Training remains unchanged for all other teams for the remainder of the season.

2016 training schedule

M1-3 Wed LV P1 20:00-22:00
M4-7 Wed LV P2 20:30-22:00 (but welcome to attend fitness on P1 at 20:00)
M8-X Wed JO 20:30-22:00

L1-2 Tues LV P2 20:30-22:00
L3-5 Mon LV P1 20:30-22:00
L6-7 Wed JO 20:30-22:00

Fixtures

Fixtures are being worked on currently. There is a large variance in the amount of home games we have each week (between 7 and 10). We expect the footprint in 2016 for the remainder of this season to be:

  • 4 games at LV and 3 games at JO, plus likely a slot at JO for you to use for non-league activity at 4pm; and
  • 6 games at LV and 4 games at JO,
  • depending on the week.

Mixed will be at JO.

Other JO use

We intend to run a youth session at JO 10-11:30 each Saturday. Details are being confirmed. If you'd like to help, please tell Sandra or I.

Should you have any questions about these revisions, your captains have further information. Minutes from the Committee meeting will be available shortly which will also provide further information.

Thanks

Stu
