Under 8s and Under 6s

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 for Under 6s, and just £30 for Under 8s. Try us out for a few weeks first! Qualified & DBS checked club coaches run the sessions with help from other club volunteers.

The coaching team is usually: Philippa and a mix of Peter, Liz, Rob & others.

Sessions are every Saturday morning: 9am-10am. Please be on time!

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

New Players: come and try us out, a membership form will follow if they would like to join.

Please visit our club Covid page for guidance for participants.

The 2023/24 season: 2 Sept to 9 Dec 2023, then Sat 9 March onwards.

We don’t play in January & February as it’s too often too cold for the very little ones, so we restart in the first week of March and keep going throughout the summer. We still run sessions if it’s just “normal” raining, but if it’s torrential rain: then we might cancel the night before.

Some match action from a few years ago!

Under 8s v OLHC: we had one over 8 player, but for Mia, Temi, Toby, and Szymon; this was their first match. So great results on 22 Oct. Triumphant with 6 wins; with goals from Ali 3, Atilla 6, Barnaby 3, Louis 6, Mia, Szymon, Temi 2, Toby, and Tolga 2.
