GHA prepare to take Gibraltar back into Europe's top 16 hockey nations

This season the GHA will see the start of a 5 year plan for its Men’s Senior Side, as we aim to mirror our efforts shown with the work with our youth programme, which now sees a steady flow of youngsters feeding our senior sides. The aim of this plan is to hopefully see Gibraltar return to the top 16 teams in Europe.

The GHA has made plans for the first 3 years which shall include euro competitions, training camps in foreign countries, local tests against visiting sides, fitness assessments, technical & tactical assessments, etc. After this period, we will review the results of these 3 years before moving forward.

In order to ensure that these plans, and the GHA squad, are led by the most competent individuals available, we are delighted to say that we think we have secured the services of a very strong and experienced 5 man management team.

The team will be composed as follows:

Team Manager Stephen Valarino
Team Coach Steven Soussi
Team Consultant Karl Stagno
Head of Delegation Peter Pizarro
Team Secretary Brian Buckley

Last Sunday saw the first training session, which was open to all senior male members (over the age of 16). There was a very good turn out, with representatives from all 3 first division clubs (even those players who are currently injured turned up to see the new project in full flow). The session included a fitness assessment as well as some basic drills. The general feed back from all players was very positive and they are all looking forward to being part of the future plans of the GHA.

The GHA next meet on the 14th December for another training session. We also plan to meet at the beginning of January where they will hold 2 training sessions & plan to have games against the visiting Great Britain Youth squad.

Further updates to follow.
