About Yourself:

I have been coaching at the University of Leeds and Leeds Hockey Club for the past six years and I have seen both clubs double in size through our passion and commitment to developing players at all levels.

We have enabled players of all abilities to find the right level for them from our new beginner programmes to our elite performance programme with our partner club Leeds Hockey Club.

Leeds Hockey Club has achieved National League status for both Mens and Ladies offering the University of Leeds students the best opportunity to train and play at the highest level.

Whatever level you find yourself at as a player you will at some point find me coaching/supporting your team across the University of Leeds Hockey programme.
