DHA AGM - Tues 21st Aug, 7.30pm @ Belper HC

Posted by Judy Hooker on 6 August 2018

The Derbyshire Hockey Association AGM has been arranged for Tuesday 21st August 2018 at Belper Hockey Club (Christchurch Meadows, Bridge Street, Belper, Sat Nav DE56 1BA). 1915hrs for a 1930hrs start!

I personally convey my apologies for the relatively short notice of this message. We would appreciate if all clubs can do their very best to send at least one member of their clubs committee (or nominated member) so that we can have a full representation of the counties clubs at the meeting. The agenda will be sent out in due course, but if clubs have specific issues they wish to raise, I welcome those direct to me, in lieu of a county secretary (which we don’t have – applications are welcome!).

Once the AGM formalities are complete I intend to hold if time permits, an “open forum” so we can discuss club matters and how we can work together to push forward.

For those individuals and/or who don’t know me, I really look forward to working with you all. I have set myself some pretty simple “strategic” aims and I hope they echo what our clubs want to do – In no particular order:

1.    Increase Participation – Players, coaches, umpires, club volunteers, how can we support through courses and post-course support , how can we embrace, reward and encourage volunteers!

2.    Increase Awareness – Improve online content (websites, social media), Offline content (Community Engagement)

3.    Dominate County Hockey– Help and support our awesome player pathway set up, support the successful Men’s County Hockey side, investigate the possibility of a ladies county side.

4.    Develop Our County Ladies League – Support and promote an expanding county league that is doing great things for ladies hockey,

5.    Open and Honest Communication – A “door always open” policy to questions/comments and (if necessary) complaints!

If you, as club representatives or your membership have additional ideas or suggestions – I really do welcome them so please feel free to get in touch. My “point 5” is the most important to me – I welcome ideas, opportunities and opinions with open arms.

I am genuinely excited to get starting in pushing our county forward and will be looking forward to meeting you on the 21st.

Yours Faithfully



William Murphy

Chairman – Derbyshire Hockey Association
