Summer Youth Hockey Year 7-10

Youth Hockey is designed for Year 7-10 players who already have the basic skills and understanding of the game and are wanting to improve and develop. It is 11 aside hockey enabling Year 7 and Year 8 players to learn positioning before they play at Secondary School. The season is usually played in Term 4 (Oct-Dec 2023). The teams are coached and mentored on the field by our great coaches. In 2023 our coaches were all P1 players with a real interest in youth coaching and development. Even though this is a competition our emphasis is not about winning but developing each players skill, understanding and confidence. The Youth Hockey is also a ‘pathway’ for our club to build a relationship for those players who are wanting to step up and play club hockey.
