Hale Hockey Club is unique in its location, facilities & membership base.
To ensure we provide the best facilities and experiences, while keeping the cost of the sport as low as possible we have made some changes to the operating model for the Club moving forward.
From November 2021 we will be making the General Manager role specific to the Facilities, Bar & Events. The big change is that the GM’s role will no longer be responsible for any ‘Club’ duties.
Over time, roles that are volunteer roles at other Clubs have increasingly been handled by the GM, and it is not a sustainable model for the Club to continue. There’s simply too much work, and for the Club to thrive it needs to have a greater degree of member involvement.
This means that from November we will have a number of volunteer positions that need to be filled. This is how the vast majority of clubs across all sports, not just hockey, operate.
Each position will have the support and guidance of a Board Member to assist them. We anticipate people would like to share some of the positions, and we actively encourage that.
Our Aim is for everyone in the Club to willingly volunteer their time in some way. This will allow members to have a thriving Hockey Club, run cost effectively, with the workload spread across many people, not just a few.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please let us know by emailing email@example.com
Board positions are available for nomination at the Club Annual General Meeting, which will be in Late-November. Full AGM details will be circulated shortly.
