Mens Hockey Risk Assessment
With 4 teams competing against other Universities and local clubs through BUCS and MRHA leagues, the University of Warwick Men’s Hockey Club is one of the biggest and most sociable clubs on campus. We train twice a week, play twice a week and socialise at least once a week. You’ll be hard pushed to find a more welcoming club within Warwick Sport, and our 4 teams can cater for all abilities from complete beginners to international players.
Club and 1st team Captain Patrick Davis will be looking to improve upon last year’s result which saw the 1st XI finish in a safe position before being arbitrarily relegated two leagues by BUCS. He will have a new side to mould as many top players have left us, but their replacements look like they will easily compete at an outstanding level. Our 2s, 3s and 4s all competed similarly, but none managed promotion, something Captains will be looking to improve upon this season. MRHA leagues see all teams competing at the highest level that they can, and it is testament to our coaches talents and commitment that we can compete well against both University and “Saturday League” sides, which often have very different playing styles.
Wednesday night sees most sports teams socialising in the SU before POP. Tom Metcalf and Kenji Kinoshita are the two social secs who will be taking circles this year, and they both have an excellent track record so far with strong performances after handover last year. The UWMHC regularly hold nights out in Leamington’s best establishments as well as events such as go-karting, bowling, pub golf and various other trips and socials, especially on away days at other Universities.
Training is held on a Monday evening (19:45 – 21:30) and Friday evening (17:15 – 19:00) at the Westwood sports pitches. We are honoured to have two top class coaches in the form of Kali Takher and Scott who help everyone within the club get to the top of their game. We have use of the two top quality pitches next to Westwood accommodation on the University’s campus, which although shared with other sports clubs are well maintained.
We’ll be continuing our strong support of various charities through events such as our annual Charity Tournament, Talent Show and new for this year Live Lounge. We’ll also be looking to expand further into the local community, with organisations such as Leamington Dolphins, which is a swimming club for children with disabilities. Hungry for Hockey is a scheme run jointly with the UWLHC which introduces the game to local primary school pupils, who otherwise may not have the opportunity. The hard work and effort behind Hungry for Hockey was acknowledged by Warwick Volunteers, who presented both clubs with the Warwick Volunteers Community Award at the 2010 annual Sports Federation Ball. We will also be joining in with “Movember” as well as encouraging our members to enter the Stratford Half Marathon to raise money for our chosen Charity.
