Junior Hockey

We are a proud family club and are very supportive of our junior players, catering for both girls and boys age 5–16, at all levels of skill and experience. There is something for every players ability no matter what age they start playing juniors. In our juniors our focus is to teach players the techniques and tactics to enable them to enjoy hockey at the standard they strive for. All junior players require is a mouthguard, shin guards, a hockey stick and gripped shoes. The Club is able to supply sticks, shin guards and goal-keeping gear for borrowing if you would like to ‘come and try’.
