Ball Patrol at the FIH Pro League

Ball Patrol HWC2018
Applications have now opened to volunteer and become a member of the Ball Patrol team at the FIH Pro League Matches and other England Hockey events in 2019. 

We are looking for young people aged between 15 to 18 to be in our Ball Patrol team for all the Great Britain home matches from 27 April to 23 June.  

Ball Patrollers must be fit, have a good knowledge of hockey and the rules, be able to follow play, understand umpire decisions and have good concentration levels during matches.

In addition, there are other match protocol requirements that require the services of the Ball Patrol Team and therefore there may be some match days where a team members role will solely be delivering these

You can apply as an individual or as a group from a club, school or other organisation. A group can be from four to eight participants. Applications close on 27 March 2019.

A briefing pack and presentation will be supplied to support all interested applicants to prepare for their training and assessment and it will outline the role and skills required to be a Ball Patroller.  

Shortlisted groups and individuals will be invited to attend training and assessment at England Hockey events in 2019, including the matches/tournaments identified in the Ball Patrol information attached. 

Ball Patrollers will need to be available for a minimum five of the total eleven sessions in the event. However it helps if you can give as much availability as possible across the event days. 

Due to the time period of the league and its proximity in relation to crucial exam time,  the Ball Patrol squad will be larger than has traditionally been appointed at tournaments. Therefore there is some flexibility around appointments for each match day and this will be done in a timely fashion

We look forward to hearing from you. If you have any queries or require any additional information please contact Ball.Patrol@englandhockey.co.uk.
