At Leek Hockey Club we are investing in coaches and training more than ever before!

Our Club Head and Mens Head Coach is returning Leek member Ben White. Ben started his hockey journey at Leek, progressing from the junior section through to the first team where he was an integral member of the successful National League squad. He currently sits third in Leeks all time National League goalscoring charts with an impressive 55 goals.
Ben returns to Leek following a successful 6-year stint at Bowdon HC, during his time at Bowdon they were both Winners and Runners-Up in the National Cup and twice won the National League North Division One Championship only to fall short of promotion to the National League Premier Division in the end of season play-offs.
Ben lead Leek 1XI to runners up of the Tier 2 National Final last season and 3XI in a very competitive Midlands Premier League. He will look to build on that this season.

Our Ladies Head Coach is Daniel O'Neill. Dan has been a member of Leek Hockey Club for over 20 years, plying his trade with the Mens 1XI for the majority of that time. He recently became a European Champion with the England Masters Over 35s and last year he was awarded Coach of The Year by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.
After losing a number of senior players and getting relegated last season, Dan will look to rebuild the Ladies 1XI and the Ladies section as whole over the coming years.

Our Head Coaches are supported by a team of 11 other England Hockey qualified coaches, who provide training and match-day support for our teams.

All of our training sessions are held at our astro-turf pitch at Leek High School
