Norfolk Hockey Ascociation - SSA Vacancy

Norfolk CountyNorfolk Hockey Hockey Association

Dear Coach/Captain/ President/hockey leader,

It is with some regret I have to advise you that Mary Cheeseman has decided to step down from her role as County Player Pathway Administrator. (Single System Administrator). Mary has been the backbone of junior hockey development in Norfolk for the past 6 years. Literally hundreds of young people have benefitted from Mary’s coaching expertise and her absolute devotion to the development of young hockey players across the county. Mary will be missed from this role and a replacement for her will be very difficult to find. I will not hide from anyone the effort and commitment required to do this job.

However, we now need to find a replacement. At to bottom of this letter is a link to a brief job description which outlines the role and will give prospective applicants an idea of what is required. Applicants are likely to have a coaching qualification of Level 2 or level 3. If you are interested in this role, please contact Avril as stated below or you may contact Mary directly if you wish to discuss the role.

I would like to emphasise that a replacement for Mary is essential. What has been achieved in Norfolk junior hockey over the last few years is remarkable and it must continue.

So, please make sure that this letter gets through to the right people (a link is included below so it may be printed or forwarded) and please offer the right kind of encouragement and support in this endeavour to fill the role described in the attached document.

John Butler ( President NHA)
