1st Youth Division (women)
Sevenoaks HC is seeking a number of enthusiastic professional coaches to join their fast growing Junior and Adult coaching team, who we would also welcome as players into our Men's or Ladies sections. Sevenoaks Hockey Club is a non-profit club built by volunteers and sustained by its members. The club’s dedicated purpose is to cultivate talent and aspiration in anyone who loves hockey by developing players and leaders, encouraging participation, and building community through lifelong friendships. The club has aspirations to play Premier league hockey indoor and outdoor and to fulfil a substantial role in the new England Hockey Talent Development framework. The club has over 900 members including 600 juniors supported by a team of over 100 coaches and managers; some of whom are paid and many of whom are volunteers. Following several years of sustained development and success we are looking to recruit additional coaches to work with the Adult and Junior operations in leading the club through the next stage of its development.
