New England Hockey Website - coming soon!

To facilitate this changeover we need to make changes to the navigation structure first - this simplified navigation will reflect the feedback received by England Hockey about the existing site.

Implementing the new navigation structure represents Phase 1 in the redevelopment of www.englandhockey.co.uk so that it also reflects the well-received design of the www.passionspedrespect.com website. 

The new navigation structure of the website will allow us to offer the equivalent of two websites in one. The Home Page will carry only six horizontal navigation tabs (Level 1), five of which will link into existing pages which focus on hockey the sport - these are:

Taking Part (or this may be called Get Involved when the site goes live)
Clubs
Calendar
England Hockey (reflects the new identity of our international teams) and 
Fanzone & Membership.

The Level 2 tabs which will appear as drop down menus when you scroll over or click the Level 1 tabs will reflect the existing Left Hand Navigation tabs which we currently use e.g. Coaching, Competitions, Events, Membership etc. From then on navigation will follow the same route as on the old site.

The sixth horizontal (Level 1) navigation tab - Governing Body - EHB - takes the visitor to a new Governing Body 'Home Page' with Left Hand Navigation which will cover all areas of hockey which is touched on by the Governing Body. Such as: 
Single System
Safeguarding & Protecting Young People
History & Rules of Hockey
Jobs / Vacancies
Facilities & Capital Investment Programme
England Hockey Regional Offices
Affiliation
Funding Partners
About Us
Equity, Ethics & Discipline.

As with the Sports Section, the Level 2 tabs which will appear when you click the Level 1 tabs will reflect the existing Left Hand Navigation tabs which we currently use, and as with the Sports Section, from then on navigation will follow the same route as on the old site.

Ready Reckoners
To help you find your way to your required page please feel free to download the pdfs - see the two links below. You may also find it useful to print out a copy of the SiteMap pdf at this stage to remind you how to find certain pages. Please note the SiteMap is a dynamic page, so as navigation changes, so the SiteMap will change too in real time. 

Change
We expect the new website to be launched week commencing 19th April. Updating our website ensures that all stakeholders, including sponsors and supporters, will be encouraged to promote our site to their respective organisation. It is our shop window through which we sell our sport, and as such the design and navigation need to be modernised. 

Change is never easy to implement or adopt, so if you do have any questions or comments then please don't hesitate to send an email to: katy.stanlake@englandhockey.org and put New Website in the subject bar. We will consider all suggestions accordingly.
