New Young Leaders Programme open for applicants

The Young Leaders Programme is a new initiative for Bowdon Hockey Club hockey players aged 15 to 19. It will focus on providing training and volunteering opportunities and help develop CV and life skills.  Volunteering definitely helps you to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs and is also a really rewarding way to help mentor our junior hockey players and give back to your club.
