Under 8s


Hockey sessions open to anyone under 8 years of age.

There’s no minimum age – if they can toddle, they can come along! Sessions are free and are run by qualified & CRB checked club coaches. We also organise friendly matches vs other local clubs.

Under 8 sessions are usually every fortnight on Saturday morning… times can vary: 9am/10am depending on other pitch bookings. We still run sessions if it’s raining, unless it’s torrential rain forecast: then we’ll cancel the night before. If you want to check please call Philippa (07952 777824).

If you’re the adult bringing your little one – expect to grab a stick and join in!

The Next Session Dates:

Sat 11 November – 9am
Sat 25 November – 9am
Sat 9 December – 9am
Then we “pause” for a couple of months (too cold) and restart the first week of March!
Check back for more dates soon… or join the U8 mailing list to receive reminders & updates.
