MPHC offers programs to cater to and help develop Junior’s skills at all stages. There are plenty of opportunities for the kids to learn, from training with our senior teams to participating in holiday programs, all of which are made to benefit their growing skill-set.
Free ‘Come and Try’ Session
This is the first experience most children will have with hockey. It is an action packed, fun filled one-hour session that will show participants how exciting hockey can be through a number of simple, yet engaging games.
The games involved are not limited at all by age – children or adults will be able to find enjoyment and challenge as they develop their ability to play the game, work as a team, and make new friends through hockey.
The MPHC ‘Come and Try’ day for 2019 is on Wednesday 27th February 2019 from 5–6pm.
All equipment will be provided for this session.
Parents need to complete an Expression of Interest form for the ‘Come and Try’ sessions if they haven’t already registered and paid for the Hookin2Hockey kit. Expression of Interest form:
1. Go to http://hookin2hockey.com.au
2. Enter Mornington or Frankston as the suburb (or enter where you live and then find us in the list)
3. Choose “Mornington Peninsula Hockey Club”
4. Click “View available program details”
5. Click “2019 Hookin2Hockey Expression of Interest”
6. Complete the details requested (ignore the fact it says $85 for the EOI) — there is no charge for the ‘Come and Try’ session.
This is Hockey Australia’s national recruitment program with the purpose of introducing children to the sport, who have not been previously been involved. This program has a fun, friendly atmosphere that allows children to gain both skills and friends simultaneously.
The eight-week program will teach participants the basic skills giving them the opportunity to not only fall in love with our game, but providing them with a dream that one day they can represent Australia — whose teams are among the world’s best at the Olympic Games.
If you have missed the first session, don’t worry, you are welcome to come to any of the sessions once registered.
