08 Feb 2016 : Fundraising launch and defibrillator
Alton Hockey Club has launched a campaign for a £50K fundraising project to allow the club to help build a new all weather hockey pitch, at Eggar's School, so that the club can continue to provide training for it's hugely expanding junior section as well as provide pitches for adult team matches.
The limitations of Amery Hill pitch on usage at the weekend and the lack of floodlights means that the juniors have extremely limited training space on Saturday and sometimes have to forego training altogether so that the adult teams can play league matches, a requirement they have to fulfil to remain in the league and further the club's already impressive progress at adult team level.
We are working closely with Eggarls to secure a Sport England bid for a grant to build a new pitch with floodlights and after the decision made at the EGM have committed to raising £50K towards the project over the coming months.

Also, recently Humbly Grove Energy, a local company, have kindly donated the funds to AHC to purchase a defibrillator which has been given to Amery Hill School to maintain and look after. The equipment was installed recently on the outside of the changing facilities for school, sport and community use. 

Anyone keen to help with fundraising activities or who would like to donate money to the cause should visit or speak to your Captain.

28 Nov 2015 : Junior training is full

Junior training is full

As many of you are aware we are capacity in our junior training sessions. The club has explored different options to ease the problem including moving U16s to adult training and looking at moving some sessions to Sundays.

While this has helped free up some space, the view of the coaches is that we are once again at capacity. The committee agreed last night that reluctantly we will not be taking any more juniors this season.

We will make some changes to training next September to allow us to open the membership to new junior players again next season.
