Be part of our Ball Patrol
Ball patrol is a crucial role within international hockey. With hockey being a fast-paced game, teams require quick reactions to the action to help them play an exciting game. To be a part of Ball Patrol you need to be 15-18 years old and have a good knowledge of hockey.
Ball Patrol's main objective is to ensure the game runs without stoppages for ball retrieval, and are quick to react to umpires' decisions so play can flow. Working in teams of six or eight, the Ball Patrol team also have responsibilities following penalty corners, in shoot outs and pre and post match protocol.
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 throughout a full match. 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 member's role will solely be delivering these.
Ball Patrollers undergo training and assessment with our hugely experienced Ball Patrol management team, where they are assessed against the following criteria:
- Personal organisation - punctuality, communication etc.
- Ball patrolling ability
- Presentation; in performance and in person
- Understanding of hockey
- Reaction, speed, agility and movement
- Team work; both on and off the pitch
Ball Patrollers are usually between the ages of 15 to 18 years old and must be based in the UK.
Opportunities for young people to join the Ball Patrol Team at specific matches can be applied for via this online application form. Both individuals or groups (4-8 people) will be able to register their interest and will receive more information. If you have a query please email email@example.com
