Junior Section

We have a thriving junior section which provides coaching for boys and girls aged 6 to 16, and as a result the club has had good representation in the local Junior Development Centres (JDCs) and the regional steps beyond in the past few seasons.

Training Sessions

This season, in order to play please ensure that your son or daughter has completed the COVID participation agreement form. 

As a club we run coaching on two days each week. All sessions are safely overseen by a qualified coach and first-aider, and start by providing children with all the basic skills they need to begin playing hockey.

Sunday Mornings (commencing Sunday 20th September)

This is a mixed session which runs between 9:00 am – 12:30 am every Sunday at our home pitch: Stirratt Pitch, Longwood Lane, Bristol, BS8 3TQ.

Until further notice training times have been amended as follows:

U12s – 9-10 am

U10s/Minis – 10:15 – 11:15 am

U14/16s – 11:30 am – 12.30 pm

Thursday Evenings (commencing Thursday 24th September)

On Thursday evenings we run a session from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Stirratt pitch for the U14s and U16s.

Matches

We enter teams into various competitions and into the local mini-hockey leagues when possible and appropriate. The older boys play in the Bristol Badgers League whilst the girls enter the Avon U14 and U16 competitions. The younger boys and girls enter the mixed Avon leagues for U10s and u12s.

We have entered U14 girls, U16 Girls and U16s Boys into the England Championships again this season (2020-2021).

Membership and Fees

This years membership fee will be £70 for all juniors (if paid on time). This covers the cost for training on both Sundays and Wednesdays.
