Junior Section

We have a thriving Junior section which provides coaching for boys and girls aged 5 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

As a club we run junior coaching on Sunday mornings and two weekday evenings 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 17th 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.

For this season, training times have been amended as follows:

U12s – 9-10 am

Minis (U8) – 10-11am

U10s – 10:30–11:30am

U14/16s – 11:30 am–12.30 pm

Tuesday Evenings (commencing 19th September)

On Tuesday evenings we run a new session from 5pm – 6pm at the Stirratt pitch for the U10s and U12s.

17:00 – 18:00: U10/12 Mixed Session (for all players in U10/U12 age groups)

Thursday Evenings (commencing 21st September)

19:00 – 20:00: U14/16 Mixed Academy (for all players in U14/U16 teams)

Parking for all the junior sessions will be in the car park behind the pitch (accessed from Beggarbush Lane opposite Bristol & Clifton Golf Club and towards the junction with the Failand to Clevedon road) rather than at the clubhouse.

Matches

We enter teams into various competitions and into the local mini-hockey leagues when possible and appropriate. The older  girls enter the Avon U14 and U16 competitions. The younger boys and girls have the opportunity to enter several tournaments for U10s and U12s.

Membership and Fees

This year’s membership fee will be £100 for all juniors (if paid on time). This covers the cost for all training sessions.

Match/tournament fees when applicable will be £7 per player.

At the start of the season, an email will be sent to all parents on how to pay membership fees this season. If you don’t receive this email please let us know by emailing obhcjuniors@gmail.com
