Job Description

Men’s 1st XI – We are looking for an experienced coach to build on the success of the Men’s 1st XI in Division 1 of the Men’s East League having gained promotion last season. Applicants should be qualified and experienced with an enthusiastic style wanting to play a modern brand of hockey. Candidates should also be able to lead a coaching team coming with initiatives and ideas which can be passed on to other coaches within the men’s section.

Men’s 2nd XI – Our second coaching position is to further consolidate the successes of the 2nd and 3rd teams, both having been promoted twice in the last 3 seasons into Division 3SE and Division 5SE of the East League respectively. This combined with the development of the prospective youth coming up from the 4th team who will also attend training sessions is key to the ethos of the club. Applicants will be expected to be able to work alongside the Men’s 1st XI coach as we look to adapt a comparable strategy that will see the men’s teams playing a similar brand of hockey throughout the club.

The growth of our junior section since 2007 has been crucial to a re-building process at Crostyx and we are seeing the benefits with a significant number of talented boys and girls progressing through to the adult teams. We would also like the coaches to assist with the development of youngsters into the men’s teams.

Our involvement as one of four partner clubs at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has also been a positive and exciting step in the club’s development, with our senior teams training and playing matches at the Olympic Park.

We also have exclusive use of the new artificial pitch at Ashton Playing Fields as our main playing venue for training and matches on Saturdays from 9:30am to 5:30pm.

Ideally, we are looking for both coaches to cover the following responsibilities:
1. Coaches to run and supervise all senior training sessions and attend all home and away league fixtures.
2. Attend U8, U10 & U12 junior training sessions on Saturday mornings (when not travelling with the men’s team) from 9.00 – 10.30am working with other coaches and volunteers.
3. Work with the Club Chairman, Committee and other coaches formulating and delivering the club’s overall performance objectives.
Our schedule for training and matches next season is as follows:


Men’s 1st team home matches on Saturdays will be played at Lee Valley with start times based on an agreed schedule with the other clubs which also play their matches at the venue.

Men’s 2nd, 3rd & 4th team home matches will be played at Ashton Playing Fields with start times at 12:00, 13:30, 15:00 and 16:30.


Men’s 1st & 2nd Teams – Alternating between Lee Valley & Ashton on Tuesdays 20:00 – 21:30
Men’s 3rd & 4th Teams plus U14 & U16 boys – Alternating between Lee Valley & Ashton on Tuesdays 19:00 – 20:30
Junior coaching – U8, U10 & U12 boys & girls at Ashton on Saturdays 9:00 – 10:30
