Key Changes to England Hockey Regional Team
eh_shield_blue.jpgKey Changes to England Hockey Regional Team
from Shelley Watts, EH Regional Network Manager
You may be aware that EH have recently been updating the England Hockey strategy and have received our 4 year investments from Sport England and UK Sport. The picture is very positive overall for hockey, particularly in light of the broader landscape of National Governing Bodies (NGBs) in England. 
Since receiving our awards, the Board have reviewed the staffing structure at England Hockey and we are making some relatively minor changes across the organisation to ensure we are structured in the best way to deliver our strategy moving forwards.

What is changing?
The most relevant changes to you relate to the team of Relationship Managers and Administrators in the local offices.
One of the key risks to our sport going forward is pitch availability and development. Hockey has grown significantly since the 2012 Olympics and is due to continue following the gold medal win in Rio. To enable us to increase capacity to support facility development, we have reduced the number of Relationship Managers (RMs) from 12 roles (including 1 job share) to 10. We will be increasing our facilities team from 1 local officer to 3 Facilities RM roles. 
These changes mean that we will amend some of the geographical areas covered by the RMs.  The 3 Facilities RMs will not be tied to specific areas as we will be looking for them to have national coverage.
The number of Administrators in the regional offices will be reduced from 3 to 2 and we are adding an additional administrator to work on national participation programmes.
We are pleased to say that we have not lost any of the current regional team through this process and there is no reduction in head count.  The restructure is intended to provide better, more specific support to clubs as we continue to grow participation.  This structure was last refreshed in 2011 and we need to adapt to the changing needs of the sport.
