Physiotherapy

The club has been working with several physiotherapists for the past few seasons and all club members can book to meet with and have appointments with them to review, assess and put plans in place to manage and treat injuries. This is included in all memberships. Where possible we aim for 1st and 2nd team games to be covered by a physio and where possible other teams too. Appointments are also available at a small cost to parents, players from other clubs and non-hockey players who may be interested.

To book an appointment with a club physio for a member, please email physios@leicesterhc.co.uk

Katie graduated from Leicester University in 2015 and has been working with the club since, she joined the club on a successful mid season tour to Barcelona and as a hockey player herself has a keen interest in the club and its progress. Katie is currently working for the NHS within Leicestershire and has experience across a wide range of physiotherapy disciplines.

Leicester City Hockey Club has again achieved England Hockey ClubMark Accreditation. This is part of Sport England’s Clubmark Programme.  Clubs achieving accreditation are recognised nationally as operating and promoting a safe, effective and friendly club environment.

The England Hockey Accreditation Scheme has the following focus areas:

John Fear – Club Supporter of the Year – Steve Young

Steve has been the Men’s Manager for two seasons now, he gathers in availability to enable selection, lets people know what’s going on and supports all the games that he can. His support has been invaluable and getting our men’s sides organised and he’s even said he will carry on next year. He really captures the essence of the Late John Fear who we are sure would have loved and got on well with Steve!

Dawn Smith – Award for Dedication – Alice Page

Alice has been running our academy now for well over a year and a half, she plans with the coaches, communicates with the academy members, delivers coaching herself and really engages with the players and their parents. She has organised our very successful camps and has helped grow the academy, enabling us to provide hockey for boys and girls who are keen to attend, she does this all as a volunteer! This award isn’t about playing, Dawn Smith was known for her perseverance, and dedication to the sport and we think Alice really shows this too!

Kath Johnson – Award for Endeavour – Declan Shepherd

Besides supporting Elsbeth with the men’s section Dec has always been keen to support other aspects of the club and this year has stepped up to support walking hockey, one of our newest sections. His coaching and support has meant that each week the members can learn, practise and avoid running! Dec has also signed up to do his coaching and has been writing some great articles for the website and social media and this grows our profile and presence as a key deliverer of sports in the city and community.

Gaynor Nash Young Person (U21) – Lara Tripp-Smith

Lara has been a great addition to the 1st team squad this year, reliable and a talent to watch for the future. There is certainly more to come from her and we are excited for the player and club member she will develop into.

Jo Dyer – Young Club Person – Isla Cullen

Isla is growing into a confident and skilful player, but this half of the season has been cut short by injury. This hasn’t stopped her though and she has been helping at academy and supporting the younger players there with a view to doing her coaching qualifications as she gets older. Her support at academy has been very much appreciated and her support for the players has been widely praised by other coaches and parents.

Club Person of the Year – Cas Evans

Well….. Availability – Tick, Need some advice – Tick, Mother and Daughter playing on the same side – Tick, Need a GK – Tick, already got a busy job but finds time to email out the squads – Tick! Cas has been a huge help and all-rounder this season, in what could only be described as one of our most difficult years Cas has been there to help , guide and do. All the qualities a club person needs, Cas has shown. We will miss her next year and with Katie off to Uni, we are losing 2 key people to the club.

Giving back

Our Charity

Our charity has been setup to enable us to break down some of the barriers preventing access to sport and physical activity. We recognise that there are a variety of reasons why people cannot or do not take part and we hope that if we can engage and build a relationship with people they will trust us enough to let us help and take away some of these barriers. Barriers can include finances, equipment, transport and we are keen to make sure where we can, that we help.
