All children from reception age upwards are welcome to join Beginners coaching sessions at 6pm on Friday evenings at Huntington School sports pitch from September to March. The sessions are fun and last an hour introducing children to hockey. No prior notification is required, however it is requested that the child is registered at the club by clicking on the JOIN tab at the top of the webpage so that the child is covered by the club's insurance and parents/guardians will receive any emails. It does not matter what stage of the season you join, there is a wide range of abilities and children will be moved up once ready.
The first three taster sessions are free enabling the child to establish if they like the game before paying the one off fee for the season.
We have plenty of sticks that can be borrowed. All hockey players wear shinpads and gumshields. It is advised that children do so straight away, certainly once they have completed the taster sessions.
Additionally the club is running two Hockey Heroes 6-week courses which is for 5-8yr olds who haven't picked up a stick before at 9.15am on Saturday's starting 28th Sept and 15th Feb. Those who have done the course will be welcome to then join the Beginners sessions. There is no requirement to do this course prior to joining the Beginners, the course is a structured 6-week programme created by England Hockey, to sign up and for further information - www.hockeyheroes.co.uk.
