Cornish coach wins England Hockey Award!

Posted by Glayne Price on 13 May 2019

Kat was nominated in the England Hockey 'Coach of the Year' category at this years awards. Unknown to her she had been nominated by members of Truro High School in conjunction with her own Club, Newquay HC.

The evening was hosted at the Athena in Leicester with over 300 people attending which also included plenty of stars creating a fantastic buzz for the world of hockey!

An extract of the bio in the EH Awards programme is included below giving you an insight into Kat's achievements ...

'... Kat is a well respected and loved senior club coach who is involved in leading sessions for Newquay 1st & 2nd Ladies XI’s. She has coached at Newquay Hockey Club for several seasons and helped the fairly newly formed 2nd team with promotion to the division above. The 1st team are currently top of their league and aspire for promotion into Premier 2 next season. Kat plays for Newquay Hockey Club 1st XI but sacrifices training to coach, working as a PE teacher at Truro High School where she is responsible for the recent qualification and success of their u16’s team at the national schools play off’s. Coaching the girls from a young age in a county where hockey is not looked at as an important sport and therefore somewhat deprived in terms of coaching/resources and facilities, she has done an amazing job to get them to the standard they are now. She has put many years into coaching Cornwall county teams too, showing her commitment to the sport and desire to develop hockey players. Without Kat and her great ability to coach and develop, there would be less hockey players in Cornwall...'
