- Junior Summer Hockey 2016

Dear Junior Member,

I am pleased to tell you that we have managed to arrange some junior summer hockey which will take place before adult summer league on Wednesdays from 6.30-7.30pm starting on 8th June for 6 weeks through until 13th July.

The plan is for the sessions to be as game based as possible with lots of small sided matches. We hope to organise teams and play some competitive mixed hockey over the 6 sessions but this will depend a bit on the number and age range of players attending.

The cost will be £10 for 6 sessions (to be paid upfront) or £2 per session.

As this is the first time we have offered summer hockey for juniors we dont know how popular it will be so we would appreciate you letting us know in advance if you plan to attend. This will enable us to plan the sessions accordingly and organise staffing. Please email us here.

New members are welcome to take part in summer hockey but they will need to complete a membership form so we have the necessary medical info and emergency contact details.

Many thanks

Claire
Junior Coordinator

- Juniors – 2015/16 End of Season Report

Newmarket Hockey Club held their last junior training session of the season on Sunday 20th March at Newmarket Leisure Centre, with players aged 4-13 years enjoying some fun games and activities before the presentation of the annual end of season awards.
The junior section of the club has developed at a pace this season, with numbers attending weekly coaching growing from no more than 20 back in September to a regular 45, organised into the following age groups: U13, U10, U8 & U6.

The job of choosing the 2015-16 award winners was left to the coaches of the various age groups and there were some difficult choices to make, particularly in terms of most improved, with all of the players showing great progress throughout the season. Awards were presented to following though:

Star Player:
U13: Oliver Brown
U10: Millie Hansgate
U8: Jack Baker
U6: Kaiden Wood & Erin Bailey

Most Improved:
U13: Rebecca Marsh
U10: Alex Aitken & Romilly Findley
U8: Isabella Means & Sofia Worrall-Wood
U6: Poppy Frampton & Cosi Booth

Best Attendance:
U13: Henry Donkin
U10: Megan Malone & Amy Colins
U8: Melanie Benedikz
U6: Poppy Frampton

We have had a really good season and have been delighted by the numbers attending weekly coaching, all of the players have shown real improvement in their skills and game play. A particular well done to all of the award winners. Next season we hope to get more coaches involved and helping out with Sunday morning sessions so we can offer further age groups and get even more children playing hockey; they are the future of our club.

- NHC Juniors vs Thetford Juniors – Tournament Report

Newmarket Hockey Club Juniors have enjoyed a great season, with numbers attending training on Sunday mornings at Newmarket Leisure Centre doubling over the last 6 months. The club have made developing the junior section a priority for this season and are delighted to now have over 55 junior members, with players coached in age groups of U13, U10, U8 and U6.
Earlier in the season, all of the players enjoyed some friendly matches when the juniors from Ely and Cambridge Nomads visited Newmarket, but with fewer members then and less playing experience they found the going tough. They learnt from this though and, with the commitment they have shown to training, they have come on leaps and bounds since.
So, last weekend was a bit of a milestone when the U13 and U10 players their first competitive matches, travelling to Breckland Leisure Centre to take on Thetford Hockey Club Juniors.

The U13 squad, made up of girls and boys, played 7-a-side hockey on half a pitch. Playing together for the first time, the team played some fantastic hockey to record a convincing 8-2 victory.

The U10 teams played the England Hockey “Quicksticks” 4 a-side game, and with Newmarket fielding three teams and Thetford two, this enabled a round robin competition with all teams getting to play each other in quick matches of 5 minutes each way. All of the matches were contested in a great spirit with some impressive play and lots of goals giving the onlooking spectators something to cheer about. Newmarket Jockeys were the inform team on the day though, winning all 4 of their matches to finish as winners ahead of Newmarket Yellow, who won 4 out of 5 matches. In 3rd was Thetford 1 followed by Newmarket Blue in 4th and Thetford 2 in 5th.

This weekend is the last session of the season for the juniors, with some fun activities and games planned for all of the age groups before the presentation of the annual end of season awards. If you are interested in finding out more or joining NHC Juniors next season, you can check out the club website at www.newmarkethockeyclub.com or get in touch via email at juniors@newmarkethockeyclub.com.

U13 Team


Georgia, Lucy, Annabel, Rebecca, Oliver, Felix, Hugh, Grace, Olivia, Henry & Victoria.

Dear Junior Members,

I hope you have all been enjoying junior training on Sunday mornings. We have been really pleased with the turn out and commitment from you all so far and are pleased we now have the numbers and coaches available to organise you into 4 coaching groups most weeks; U14/12, U10, U8 and U6. This makes things easier for us and hopefully means you as players get more enjoyment and learning out of the session.

I just wanted to remind you that there is no training the next two Sundays as we take a break for half term. Training will recommence again on Sunday 8th November. There are also a few other important updates for you:

Junior Polo Shirts – These have now been ordered and we will have them to give out to you all on 8th November.

Junior Hoodies – We will be placing an order for Junior Hoodies, if you would like one they are available to purchase for £12.  They will be Navy with the club logo embroidered in yellow/white on the left chest. Please complete and return an order form with payment at the next training session and we will get these ordered and out to you before the end of November. They might make a nice Christmas present!

Friendly Match – On 29th November  we have organised some friendly matches against the junior teams from Cambridge Nomads and Ely Hockey Clubs. Please put this date in your diary and try to make sure you are available to represent the club in these friendly matches.
