Welcome to the 2015/16 junior hockey season. Last season we saw an increase in the number of junior’s joining the club and this year we are aiming to grow our numbers again with a particular focus on boy’s participation. The club is accredited through England Hockey ClubsFirst scheme which provides parents and players alike with the confidence that we operate a safe and effective child-friendly environment and that the club follows good practice guidelines.
This season we welcome Steve (don’t mention the Ashes!) Campbell as our Lead Junior Coach for the 11-16 years old girls and boys. Steve is no stranger to the club having played for the men’s 1st team last year and he will be a huge asset to the junior section of the club, supplementing our existing wealth of qualified coaches.
Throughout the season we will have lots of junior matches, festivals and events for all age groups, so please join us in what will be an exciting and enjoyable season! And don’t forget to keep in touch with all the action on social media and via the website.
