Membership Prices Increase from 1st October and Direct Debit No Longer Available after September
28 Sep 2018
 
Just a reminder that membership prices will be rising from the 1st October, so this is the last weekend to benefit from the reduced early season rate. You can pay via the website either using PayPal using a credit or debit card, or you can sign up to pay via our monthly Direct Debit scheme. 
 
Also, our Direct Debit schemes are only available up until the end of September, so again last weekend to sign up if you want to stretch your membership over regular monthly payments. 
 
Don't forget we offer a number of packages now, giving you the option to pay everything up front and never need to take cash to training or matches, or just pay for matches up front or just pay a membership fee and pay as you play and train. Lots of options to choose from. Check out our membership page for more details, or email membership@norwichcityhc.co.uk if you have any further questions.

Norwich City HC 2018/2019 Fantasy League is open and FREE for you to start to create your own team
24 Sep 2018
 
Our very own Norwich City HC fantasy league for the 2018/2019 season has opened and you can now create your very own mixed team from players throughout the club. 
 
Visit the fantasy page on the website via http://www.norwichcityhc.co.uk/fantasy/ and begin to pick a player from each team across the club, one player maximum from each team (excluding the GK) and start to see how your team compares with others as the season progresses. 
 
Points are awarded to each player based upon games they play in, appearances, the results of those games, the goals they are scoring (more so for defenders and midfielders than forwards), their attendance at training, plus whether they are involved in coaching and umpiring. 
 
It is FREE to take part, pick your team now and make tweaks during September and October, and after that you will be permitted to make one player change per month. Just login to the NCHC and go to http://www.norwichcityhc.co.uk/fantasy/ and start to have some fun exploring the 100s of players we have playing in our 16 teams across the club.

Walking hockey starts again Thursday 6 Sept
4 Sep 2018
 
Norwich City is restarting its walking hockey sessions on Thursday evenings 6.30-8pm on their home pitch in Taverham. 
 
A couple of taster sessions in the summer proved such a success that walking hockey will now be a regular fixture every Thursday. 
 
Walking hockey is a new initiative promoted by England Hockey which is taking the country by storm. Adding a simple twist slows the game down so that everybody can play - whatever their level of fitness, experience or injuries. 
 
It's easier on the knees, allows you to chat and socialise at the same time - and it's great fun too. 
 
Back to hockey, for returners or brand new beginner players, will run at the same time on the other pitch - 6.30 to 8pm. 
 
To ensure we cover costs coaching fees are increasing to £4 per session or 3 for £10 if paid in advance. 
 
For more info or to discuss the best session to attend contact enquiries@norwichcityhc.co.uk

24 Aug 2018
 
Congratulations to Harry Paterson who has been selected to represent one of the three England teams at the 2018 School Games National Finals at Loughborough University between Thursday 30 August and Sunday 2 September.  
 
The School Games is a major multi-sport event for talented young athletes across the UK and was set up following the London Olympics. It is set up as a mini-Olympic style event, with a Celebration Ceremony and players staying in team accommodation and facing opposition from the other home nations. The Games features many of the UK's best young sporting talents, with over 50 of the Team GB Squad at the Rio Olympics having previously competed in the School Games, including hockey gold medallists Georgie Twigg and Lily Owsley. 
 
Harry started playing hockey at the age of five in Norwich City's Minis section and is now a member of the Mens 1st XI. We wish Harry all the best in the School Games.

Have you registered for Club Day on Saturday 18th August?
7 Aug 2018
 
Please note that our Club Day is not far away and if you plan to come along then please ensure that you have registered via the homepage on our website. 
 
The event will start around 10:30 and complete late afternoon, a day packed with fun inter club mixed hockey, with a bar and BBQ open for food and drink throughout the day. 
 
With it being a Saturday this year we plan to keep the bar open after the event for anybody that wants to stay for a further drink after the hockey has ended. 
 
Always a fun packed day, open to all members, family, friends and guests, not forgetting the standard is varied so don't feel you aren't good enough to attend (albeit you do need to be O13 to participate unfortunately).

Where have all our hockey balls gone?
4 Aug 2018
 
We have lost over 250+ balls from the training ball bags over the last season, many of the new ones we got this time last year have all disappeared. 
 
If you have any balls in your kit and stick bags that belong to the club then please can you return them during the upcoming August training sessions or let your coaches or captains have them. 
 
With so few hockey balls the coaches at training will see more time spent for the players constantly collecting balls to resume exercises rather than getting on with coaching. 
 
If you can have a look at home and in your kit and stick bags and please return balls back to the store at the clubhouse. 
 
Thank you. 
 
Your coaching team.
