Juniors 2018/19

Dear Juniors, 

We hope you have enjoyed the summer holidays and are looking forward to the start of the new hockey season.

We now have dates and details for the 2018-19 season which will start on Sunday 16th September with training times and groups the same as last season.

10-11am       U8’s & U10’s
11-12noon   U12’s & U14’s

Age groups are aligned to academic school years (i.e. based on a player’s age on 1st September) as requested by England Hockey. Full details can be found on the club website here.

Again this season we will be entering teams at all age groups into regular tournaments with other Cambridgeshire clubs. If you look at the calendar on the club website you will see there are four dates for these throughout the season, including one which we will host at Newmarket on 11th November. We will also have a couple of friendly fixtures against Thetford HC as in previous years.

Junior membership will again be £60 for the season and will include a new club playing shirt for 2018-19 and socks. A junior membership form can be downloaded from the website here. Included on the membership form is the option to order a junior hoodie at an additional cost of £20. Please make sure all membership fees are paid by 30th September.

Further information on junior hockey is available in the Welcome Pack which can be downloaded from the website here.

We currently have space for new members so if you know of anyone who is keen to give hockey a go please feel free to pass on these details or share with them this poster.

Finally, we are always on the lookout for more volunteers to assist with coaching on Sundays, help out with teams at tournaments, organising kit orders etc. If you would be willing to get involved at all please do let us know, anytime you can give is much appreciated.

For anyone that might be interested in helping with coaching we will be hosting an England Hockey workshop called ‘Engaging Games for Children’ at the club on Sunday 7th October 1-4pm. The cost of the workshop is £48 but the club have agreed to fund this for anyone helping with junior coaching. Please see further details here and let me know if you would be interested in attending so I can let you know how to book a place.

We look forward to seeing you all on 16th September.
