Jamie Cachia
Sport: Hockey

Jamie grew up in Scotland discovering his love for team sports at Strathallan School, Perthshire, where he played 1st team rugbycricket and hockey, captaining in both rugby and cricket. It was here he experienced his first international opportunity for Scotland Hockey in the U16 andU18 age groups. 

He specialised in hockey at Durham University where he spent 5 years playing and gaining a 2:1 in Geography and Education and completing a GTP at Durham School to become a qualified geography teacher. He was the second undergraduate to play full international  hockey while studying, and was a member of the 2010 Scottish Commonwealth Games team that competed in Delhi. 

Jamie moved into coaching after leaving University, working at both Leeds University and Sheffield Hallam University, leading the latter to their maiden British university championship as Head Coach. Coaching part time enabled him to train full time and chase the dream of representing Scotland at a home Commonwealth Games. He achieved this dream in 2014 playing for Scotland in the Glasgow Games and has also played in 3 European Championships, winning the “GK of the Tournament” Award in 2013. Giving 13 years to international hockey, earning 50 Senior Caps for Scotland, he is now embarking on a new mission coaching and helping others achieve their dreams while still playing hockey at Beeston Hockey Club

Jamie works for a large coaching company, helping to run camps and working with a variety of different schools and is also Head Coach of Nottingham University Men’s hockey team. Outside of sport, Jamie is a big family and friends man; these support structures helped him greatly on his own hockey journey.
