Under 8s and Under 5s


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 5s, and just £25 for Under 8s. Try us out for a month for free first! Qualified & DBS checked club coaches run the sessions with help from other club volunteers.

The coaching team is usually: Philippa, Emma & Ruth.

Under 5 and Under 8 sessions are every week on Saturday morning: 9am-9.45am.

Please be on time! Sometimes the session ends at 10am if there is no match on after us.
We still run sessions if it’s just “normal” raining, but if it’s torrential rain forecast: then we might 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 2019/20 season starts:

We don’t play in January & February as it’s too blinking cold, but we restart in March and keep going throughout the summer – and then it’s once a fortnight from May to August.
