Sheffield Hockey Club first introduced the role of Hockey Development Officer back in 2005, marking our commitment to the development of Hockey within South Yorkshire. Working in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, we are incredibly proud to facilitate such an important role within the city of Sheffield. Whilst we have already experienced a great deal of success, we recognise that there is a great deal more to do and we look forward to working with you to achieve this.
