The role of Hockey Development Officer is to grow and develop the sport in all areas. That starts at a participation level and works its way through to an elite level on the Island.
The job entails finding out which areas of Hockey on the Island need improving and then find appropriate ways to do this.
The HDO will be looking to attract more people into the sport using different initiatives and will be focusing on improving pathways to create a safer more positive experience for players already involved in the sport.
The HDO will be working closely with clubs and schools to ensure as many children and adults as possible can access hockey and enjoy the benefits that come with playing the sport.
