Lucy Briscoe – Youth Head Coach

Hello! My name is Lucy Briscoe, I have been coaching hockey for almost 15 years, and it all started with my passion to help people improve.

I draw on my experience as a player and I have been lucky enough to be part of squads winning European Indoor and Outdoor medals with Slough and Leicester HC in recent years. I have experience coaching 5 years old to 60 + years at various levels. I have coached at County Development, Academy Centres and Performance Centres in the past developing budding youngsters. From adult county to regional leagues, I continue to learn and help players at BHHHC reach their potential in hockey.

I hope my current knowledge will help BHHHC build for the future and I’m excited for the new season to begin.
