NEWS AND RESOURCES
The CHA participated in the #EQUALLYAMAZING Executive Leadership Forum held in Brussels between 24 and 26 March 2023. Which is Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
We were inspired, provoked, and learned a lot. The forum focussed on achieving success despite difficulties, "rejection is protection, the best is yet to come" - Kaite Sadlierm, sustainability within and outside of hockey as a sport, raising awareness about creating a safe space for athletes to compete without fear or prejudice of abuse regardless of its nature. "if you see something say something, don't be a bystander" - Tine Vertommen.
We thank the EHF for inviting the CHA to participate in the event. The knowledge and relationships that were established will surely support the CHA in developing the sport in Cyprus.
NEW HOCKEY PITCH
The CHA is looking to create a working group. With the committee's support, this group's sole purpose will be to undertake, document, and raise funds. that will lead to the successful installation of a new field hockey pitch
The CHA is looking for a long-term partner(s) in developing the sport throughout Cyprus.
Areas that we looking for partners.
a) Youth Academy
b) International Events e.g. upcoming EuroHockey Indoor Championship
c) Infrastructure Development
d) National Teams both Men and Women
We are willing to engage in detail with prospective partners that align with the positive framework Cyprus Hockey continues to develop.
The CHA is working with the community of Athienou, to achieve two objectives. The first objective is to have our very first indoor hockey season in Cyprus and the second will be to host a EuroHockey Indoor Championship in Cyprus for the second year running.
The indoor season is provisionally scheduled to start in September. However, there is a great deal of preparation required. Anyone available to support in organizing indoor is welcome to support the CHA.
