EH Structural Review

EH Structural Report

At the England Hockey AGM in March 2017, a resolution to review the structures within the sport was put to the AGM and passed via a 98% majority. The AGM resolution read as follows:

“This resolution proposes that England Hockey review the sport's current governance structure across the country so that it provides the best opportunity to develop the sport; increasing participation levels and the chances of sustained success at national and international level while safeguarding participants and giving members the best possible experience in the 21st century”.

The Board of England Hockey appointed an independent consultant, Yvonne Barker from Yew Consulting, to undertake the consultation phase.

Following the work by Yew Consulting England Hockey issued a proposal in July 2019 for the way forward. There were roadshows during June and July with two more in September. The closest to us is at St Albans on 16 September. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you wish to attend.

An article ob the current state is on the England Hockey website.
