1st X1 Home Match Support Officers
For each of our home 1st X1 matches (now all Premier League!) we are expected by England Hockey to complete a number of duties as well as there being various elements involved in hosting a home match day. We are looking for volunteers to help with the following
Match day host - To give a warm and fantastic welcome to our visitors and ‘host’ them across the day – primarily the match official’s and umpires. We may be looking at you vets & alumni!
Logistics boss - To be on top of things logistically for the day! Pitch and crowd set up, changing room access etc – ensuring it is a smooth-running day!
Programme officer – For each home game we have to produce and print a programme. We would love it if somebody wanted to take ownership of the full process (you will have help don’t worry) and ensure a programme is created efficiently for each home game.
