Head of Development

New

2019 has been a positive year for South West United Hockey Club.  We have certainly taken some nice sized steps forward in some key areas.  We as a club want to keep our rate of improvement at a high level.  Reflecting our progressive approach to club hockey, and with 2020 front of mind, the club has decided to formally title Phil Jackwitz's role as SWUHC’s Head of Development.   

The Head of Development is a dual-purpose role; “recruitment” and “development”.  The Head of Development will work across a number of areas including working with schools, creating recruitment events, creating development opportunities for members across the whole year, plus providing ongoing support for all our coaches.   

This role will very hands-on so if you have any ideas on how to further advance our great club, please get in touch with Phil.  You can reach Phil at philjhockey@gmail.com.  


SWUHC and your School

Off the back of some positive achievements in 2019, SWUHC is poised to enter into a new phase of growth.  Connecting with schools has always been identified as a sizable part of any vision to build a club.  SWUHC has now created a number of activities designed to build the quantity and quality of our connections with local schools as well as the broader community.  Ultimately, we’d love to give as many local students as possible, the opportunity to pick up a hockey stick and play our game.  

Starting from Term 1 2020, SWUHC will be offering to work with local schools across a number of ideas.  The ideas being developed will appeal to all junior age groups.  These ideas include;
  • Delivering introductory hockey programs, during or after school hours, outdoors and / or indoors
  • Assisting schools engaged in inter-school hockey competitions with coaching across their pre-competition preparations and / or competitions
  • As we did with Oxley State School earlier this year, set up “Come and Try” spaces at school fetes
  • Create a School Hockey Gala Day
