We need you!
London Wayfarers Hockey Club continues to thrive thanks to all the volunteers that do so much work in the background. We are truly grateful to all members, parents and others who help with coaching, umpiring and committee work. As a member of the club, we hope that you will embrace the club’s ethos by donating your time and skills to help teams, especially our juniors, enjoy the best possible hockey experience.
There are a wide variety of roles ranging from team managers or captains to coaching, umpiring and of course, as one of the many committee roles. Some of our parents are more comfortable on pitch, helping coach the tiddlers, while others prefer to get involved off pitch in a range of ways – from helping with the newsletters to baking cakes for hockey events. It’s up to you!
In this spirit, we also ask our senior teams to help the junior section and vice versa resulting in senior players turning out on Sundays to support with coaching, showing off their skills or umpire junior matches. In return, we see our older juniors perform ball boy / ball girl duties at our first team matches.
