Please take the time to look through these guidelines and use them to shape what community hockey will look like in your Association for 2020.      SEASON TRANSITION GUIDELINES   STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF THE VANTAGE BLACK STICKS WOMEN’S TEAM   Following the resignation of Vantage Black Sticks Women’s Assistant Coach Katie Glynn, Hockey NZ wants to reiterate that Katie has decided to resign from her role to take a break from professional hockey.
Katie is a valued member of our coaching whanau and we wish her well with her future endeavours.
  We write in response to recent media speculation regarding the resignation of our Assistant Coach Katie Glynn.
The media has alleged that Katie is in some way working against positive changes within our environment. We as Black Sticks players absolutely refute these allegations.
As she did when she was a player, Katie holds herself to the highest standards as a coach and as a person. Her work ethic, dedication and passion for our team and its success are undeniable.
We are extremely saddened that Katie has resigned from a role she loves and excels in. The Black Sticks Women have lost an integral element of our team, and offer Katie our full support going forward.
Signed by all 24 players in the current Black Sticks Women’s squad
