Under 12s to 16s

Our Juniors program offer opportunities for children of all age and skill levels. If your child is 10 years old or under and new to hockey we recommend starting with our HookIn2Hockey Beginners Program.

In 2019 we will enter four teams into winter competition:
– Under 12s (Boys)
– Under 12s (Girls)
– Under 14s (Mixed)
– Under 16s (Mixed)

TRAINING & GAMES
Under 12s play on Saturday mornings, between 9am and 12pm around the northern suburbs. Training is on Wednesday nights from 6-7pm, with warm up beginning 15 minutes earlier.

Under 14s and Under 16s play on Friday nights, between 6pm and 9pm. Training is on Wednesday nights from 6-7pm, with warm up beginning 15 minutes earlier.

Training for Juniors begins in late February, and the season commences in late April.

All Juniors and Parents are invited to a free trial training session – we can provide all equipment, please just bring your own mouthguard.

For the first child fees are $245 (which includes a $50 payment directly to Hockey Victoria). For each subsequent child fees are $205. More details on how to pay will be provided closer to the season.

Fees for Juniors who are also playing Seniors are $450.

EQUIPMENT & UNIFORM
All players require a hockey stick, shin pads and a mouthguard. Uniforms can be purchased closer to the season, including Playing Shirts ($TBA), Socks (TBA) and Shorts (TBA). Please talk to us if you’d like to borrow or buy second hand equipment or items.
