28th AugMeeting on 24 September 2019 at St. Francis Sports Club

Sussex Hockey invites your club to a special meeting on Tuesday 24th September at St Francis Social Club (Mid Sussex venue) 7.15 for 7.30 pm

England Hockey are proposing a new structure for hockey. This will affect all aspects of hockey from Club, County, Regional and National, all leagues and all organisation structures from juniors through to veteran Hockey.

Every club and every club member has an opportunity to comment on or feedback on the current outline guidelines that EH have put together over the recent months. This is available online – see PDF copy attached. The deadline for doing so is October 27th.

Some Clubs have attended the EH briefings, where it was quite obvious that the proposal needs some more in depth detail; however in Sussex we want all clubs to have the opportunity to review and discuss amongst each other, all of this being prior to taking it back to their clubs so that anyone wishing to provide feedback can meet the deadline of October to make comments via the survey prior to the final vote at the EH AGM in March 2020.

Sussex Hockey are also wanting to make some changes to the current constitution to bring it in line with the current structure after changes to Schools & Colleges with the removal of financial affiliation to Sussex and changes to competition structures. A particular article to be discussed at the meeting will be Article 15. This relates to what happens to financial assets when winding-up Sussex Hockey Association. Once discussed, an EGM will be called to amend the constitution. Each club will be able to cast one vote at the EGM, when it is called.

All of this will affect future hockey in Sussex and we invite all Sussex Clubs to send the following personnel

a) Chair Main club or voting representative

b) Junior Chair / Junior Co-ordinator

c) A League co-ordinator/ fixtures or other representative

25th JulWeb Site Structure Changes

Some changes have been made to the structure of the web site.
Some of the pages that have traditionally been available to anyone have been moved to within the personal area. This further protects data from access by people with no genuine reason to access it.
The pages affected are the Committees Page, Umpire Contact Details Page(s), Membership Page, Umpire Panels Page and Umpire Awards Page.
In addition, the Club Page that is in the public area showing all the information about a club has been modified so that it no longer shows any contact information for individuals. There is a duplicate of the page accessible from within the personal areas, which does show contact details.

The changes mean that, with the exception of a very few key contacts for the association(s), no personal contact information is now available to the public - it is only available to people who are properly registered as umpires or registered by clubs as club administrators or team officials.
In the past, there have been three settings that people can use for protecting their contact information (Public, Private or Secret). Because of the changes the Public category is now only really relevant for a few key association contacts and a new Internal category has been added. Any contact information marked as Internal can only be seen by genuinely registered users of the web site.
If your contact information needs to be seen by people from other clubs even if you are not due to play against them, you should ensure that your privacy setting for the relevant contact information is Internal rather than Private.
