ECB Club Youth
Youth Development Programme Year 7-13
Premier Development Programme
If a youth has played winter hockey with us for at least one season and is playing P2 or P3 hockey for the club they are eligible for this programme. Our Premier Development players receive all of the excellent coaching provided in the Youth Development programme with an increased focus on game play analysis and a more individualised coaching and mentoring programme.
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 2022). The teams are coached and mentored on the field by our great coaches. In 2022 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.
