Session Information

Every week there will be a registration at the beginning of each session and a sign-off to close of each session. This measure is to assist the maintenance of membership and payment records, as well as ensuring the security and safety of children.

Parent Requirements

Parents of children in the U8s group are expected to remain at the pitch side throughout the session. Parents of children in all groups should ensure that they are properly equipped for each session (Gum shields, shin pads, other hockey equipment such as goalkeeper kit and suitable clothes for weather conditions)

Hockey Kit

All kit can be obtained from the club at very reasonable rates. For the 2017-2018 season, the Kit cost is included within the Annual Subs.

What to bring with you

All children regardless of age must be equipped with the following:

  • Weather appropriate sports clothing
  • Gum shield (compulsory for training and matches)
  • Shin pads (compulsory for training and matches)
  • Water bottle

We can provide hockey sticks for those wishing to try the sport before committing to any expenditure although inexpensive sticks are available from most sports shops.
