Introducing the CoPHC Coaching Team
As part of our plans for a sustainable future at the club, City of Peterborough is rightly proud of the talented coaching team that is currently in place, and which continues to develop. Many of our coaching team have come up through our junior system and all represent the club in the top teams.
Mike Yeoman has been appointed the clubs very first Director of Hockey, a new role which will see him over see the entire coaching and playing vision of the club. He has a wealth of experience both playing and coaching internationally. He's just successfully guided the men's first team back into the national league having spent his most recent years guiding junior teams to national finals, particularly in the indoor format.
Mike Yeoman will coach both men's and ladies first and second teams.
Nathan Foad, Jordan Heald and Paul Hillsdon are the main support coaches for the senior sides - the ladies on a Wednesday and the men on a Thursday evening
Jordan Heald, Neil Lake, Adam Wilson and Nathan Foad look after the junior coaching sessions through the week. Nathan is the lead coach for juniors over the age of 12, with Jordan taking the lead for Sunday Morning Mini Hockey (12 years and under) which is an ever growing session supported by Neil, Adam and many other junior and parent volunteers.
Nathan, Jordan and Adam were members of the 1st team that got promoted to the National league this year. With Paul Hillsdon and Richard Herbage (who looks after junior boys teams in EH competition), the group of coaches they have all been involved with Club coaching, and particularly junior coaching within the England hockey player pathway system for some time.
These coaches will be supported by the next generation who wish to become hockey coaches.
