The England Hockey is proud and delighted to report that four of the England Hockey National Youth Panel have recently been awarded FIH International Hockey Leadership Certificates in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the promotion of hockey nationally and internationally.

The Award winners are Abi Evans (North), Phil Cox (Midlands), Kate Costin (Midlands) and Rach Williams (East). 

National Youth Panel members receive FIH International Leadership certificatesJane Nockolds, National Manager of England Hockey Volunteering reported her real pleasure in witnessing Harry Stickland (National Youth Panel Chair and a previous winner of the Award) presenting the certificates to the champions at their recent meeting in Loughborough. 

“The NYP is a real credit to our organisation and their contribution to hockey is very significant. I know how hard each of these young people have worked for the sport over the past 12 months and for them to receive recognition from the FIH is tremendous. We now have a Youth Panel in each of the five regions and we are currently working on the development of a single delivery programme for all. They organise and deliver the Yazoo Regional and National Hockey Festivals each year and are influential in a number of other areas including the recruitment and promotion of volunteering to young people.”
