Our Juniors program caters for children of all age and skill levels. If your child is a young beginner, we recommend starting with our HookIn2Hockey Beginners Program.
We have seven Juniors teams in the winter competition:
– Under 10s (Mixed)
– Under 10s (Mixed)
– Under 12s (Boys)
– Under 12s (Girls)
– Under 14s (Girls)
– Under 14s (Boys)
– Under 16s (Mixed)
Under 10s and 12s are half-field games.
TRAINING & GAMES
Under 10s and 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 Tuesday 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. (This year due to COVID-19 we expect the season will begin in July.)
All Juniors and parents are invited to a free trial training session – we can provide all equipment, please just bring your own mouthguard.
WHAT ABOUT COVID-19?
Like all sports we’ve been isolating for the past few months, but following advice from the State Government and local council, hockey training commenced again in early June. Social distancing measures are in place as well as additional cleaning. Sport “as usual” is expected in late June or early July, once restrictions are lifted the season will begin not long after.
We are pleased to have the cheapest membership for hockey Victoria. Please see our fees for more information.
EQUIPMENT & UNIFORM
All players require a hockey stick, shin pads and a mouthguard. Uniforms can be purchased closer to the season, including Playing Shirts ($58), Socks ($15) and Shorts ($15). Please talk to us if you’d like to borrow or buy second hand equipment or items.
