Ball Patrol
Are you aged 15-19? Love hockey? Then apply to volunteer as Ball Patrol at the 2018 Vitality Women's Hockey World Cup. 

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.

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 8 December 2017

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 international matches and events in 2018, including the matches/tournaments identified in the Ball Patrol information attached. All applicants will need to attend a minimum of two matches for training and assessment. 

Ball Patrollers will need to be available for a minimum seven of the total 18 sessions in the event. However it helps if you can give as much availability as possible across the event days.
