Academy Welcome

Dear [332],

Thank you for making the fantastic decision to join or re-join Cheltenham Hockey Club (CHC). We can confirm that your membership form has been submitted successfully and payment is in hand, so welcome aboard!

Please have a look at this briefing note, which contains information that is specific to what the Club is offering U16 – U18 players.

Training has now started, the Academy training schedule can be found on the website here. Our U16 Girls train at Cheltenham College on a Friday evening, 2000 – 2100 hours, and our U16 Boys train at Balcarras School on a Friday evening, 1930 – 2030 hours. Academy members may also play for our Saturday league teams, schedules will be released shortly on the website for Men’s and Women’s training. Broadly speaking they train on a Thursday evening at Balcarras School and Cheltenham College. The Men’s and Ladies 1st XIs also train on a Tuesday at Cheltenham College.

There is an upcoming Fun Day on Saturday 21st September. We would love it if you could join us. This is a mixed 6-a-side hockey tournament. There will be a BBQ, prizes for winning teams and lots of fun all round! It will be a fantastic way to start the season.

The Club will be using the Teamo App, which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store,to manage availability, collect match fees and communicate information to members. Please sign up for Cheltenham HC using this link – it seems to work best on a mobile phone rather than a computer.

All club members should have an approved black club shirt, which is either the extant Mizuno shirt or the new Stuart Surridge equivalent, which is of identical pattern. The latter will become available on a first come first serve basis on 21 September. Thereafter there will be ordering windows (details to follow) as a minimum of 10 shirt orders of a particular gender are required to place a further order and there is a 7‑week lead time. A range of black kit (shorts, skorts, socks, ¼ zip, fleece, etc) primarily Canterbury branded with a CHC logo on will be available to order whenever on a 10 day turn round through the Academy Sport & Leisure website here (re-visit if it is not yet illustrated) or in store. The shirt can also be ordered from here.
