Carol Whiteley

Your club leader was born in Sheffield way back in 1952.

She gained her education at Knaresborough Grammar School and excelled at sport as you can imagine. Tennis and Hockey becoming her favourite past times.

Carol went on to Liverpool University and gained a teachers degree in sports coaching.

Carol played hockey for all her school sides as well as Harrogate ladies for 18 years and won honours playing for the county of Yorkshire.

Her first teaching post was at Queen Anne Grammar school in York that she held for 7 years before moving to Harrogate Grammar school for 6 years.

She emigrated to South Africa in 1987 with two small children and was awarded one of the first "playball" franchises that she successfully ran for 10 years.

She was encouraged to re-join the teaching profession and joined the sports department at St Andrews, then moved to Holy Rosary followed with a sports position at Roedean School before finally retiring in 2015.

Carols' passion has been, and still is hockey, when she is on the field with your little ones she thinks she is their age.
