TBBHC has a Coaching Framework which incentivises our coaches to achieving the appropriate skills, expertise and qualifications. Full details of this including coaching fee rates and conditions are outline is the Coaching Framework document:

Core and Advanced Skills

All Team Bath Buccaneers players and coaches should have a fundamental grasp of the core skills of hockey from an early age and should continue to develop these during their playing careers. The Core skills expected by England Hockey are found in the attached document Core Hockey Skills.

Regardless of the activity taking place, whether in a game or training, creating a safe environment for everyone involved in hockey is essential.

England Hockey strongly recommends that all clubs/ organisations and their members take the time to read and digest the policies and guidance. It is the responsibility of everyone within the sport to create a safe environment for all who participate.

Team Captains/Managers will authorise the claim form and forward to Business Control for reimbursement. The form includes bank details for payments.

The Mileage Claim form includes a standardised mileage for each venue in a background sheet. This should be used for calculating mileage for different venues. All trips will be based on a return trip to the University of Bath.

The agreed mileage rate will be 19.5 p per mile (updated Sept 2022)


Team Captains/Managers are responsible for ensuring that transport to matches is undertaken through the minimum number of cars necessary and for coordinating drivers. Max 5 cars.

Drivers should keep a record of their mileage using the form provided.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. All young people have the right to be safe and enjoy their Hockey

England Hockey's SafeGuard has been created to provide role-specific safeguarding information for all involved in hockey activity dependent on their role.  All young people have the right to be safe and enjoy their hockey. We all have a duty to safeguard and protect young people from harm. All hockey clubs/organisations must have policies and procedures in place to create a safe environment.

Team Bath Buccaneers Hockey Club (TBBHC) adopts England Hockey’s Safeguarding and Protecting Young People in Hockey Policy, Equality Policy and Code of Ethics and Behaviour (Respect)and works in accordance with the policy contained in these documents.

  • TBBHC Adopting Safeguarding Policies June 2021.docx

In providing hockey coaching for children and young people under 18 years of age, TBBHC recognises its responsibility to have a nominated Club Welfare Officer.

Rachael Webb is registered with England Hockey as the Club Welfare Officer and is the first point of contact for coaches, managers, players, volunteers, parents and U18s should there be any concerns about child welfare, poor practice or child abuse.

Changing Room Policy for Juniors Playing in Adult Teams

Changing rooms play an integral part of the environment in hockey, not only for their intended use but they also provide a place for pre-match discussion, debrief or to celebrate wins. 

Whilst changing rooms may appear to be the ideal place for this use, they can also be an intimidating place for young people, especially those playing in senior teams. For full information on changing room policies please read the Safeguarding Master Document above.
