Hi! Thanks for visiting this page on our Juniors Hockey !
We are a community club that offers junior members participation at all ages (from 5 year-olds and above) and all levels.
All our training sessions are led by qualified coaches supported by senior players from the Club.
The training will commence from 12 Sept 2017 through to 3 May 2018 and takes place at Blatchington Mill School astro pitches. During half-term breaks in the season we'll be holding hockey camps. These will be all day sessions for Year 5 and above juniors.
The weekly training schedule is:
5:30 - 6:30 : U10 boys and girls (year 5)
6:30 - 7:30 : Goalkeeper training (GKs should also attend their age group training sessions as well)
6:30 - 7:30 : Deaf hockey
6:30 - 7:30* : U14 'performance training' by invitation only session for boys and girls (years 8 & 9) - see below.
5:30 - 6:30 : U14 boys and girls (years 8 & 9)
6:30 - 7:30 : U16 boys and girls (year 10 & 11)
5:30 - 6:30 : U12 boys and girls (years 6 & 7)
6:30 - 7:30* : U16+ 'performance training' by invitation only session for boys and girls (years 10 and above) - see below.
09:00 - 10:00 : U9s and below
Matches for the different age groups - either home or away. Older juniors (U16s, Flippers, Gulls, etc..) will have games on Saturdays.
*NOTE: The performance training sessions (Tues & Thurs) will be strictly by invitation only - so if a player is not on the relevant register, they will not be able to take part. ONLY Jon and Wendy (senior coaches) will decide who can attend these sessions. These identified individuals are expected (must) also attend their age group training session as well.
Fees for the 2017/18 season will be:
- Annual subs (Sept to May) - £95 per child
- Annual sub (second or more sibling) - £90 per child
- Half year sub (Sept - Dec or Jan - May) - £50 per child
Note: No sibling discount for half season subs; GKs with their own purchased kit will not have to pay annual subs.
Match fees (up to U14s) - £5 for each child including GKs; Older juniors (above U14s) match fees will be notified by relevant Team Manager.
Registration payments are to be made via the payments section of the website. Please ensure you 'tag' the payment to your child's name. Click PAYMENTS
Parents MUST REGISTER on-line before we will allow juniors to participate.
We also need parents to help out, so please let us know if you would be willing to volunteer - especially coordinating junior teams for matches.
All juniors should wear sports kit and should take into account weather conditions (i.e. water-proofs, gloves/beanie hats for wet / cold conditions). Layers of kit are recommended. Additionally good trainers for astro-turf surface.
We have hockey sticks and balls for all age groups.
For juniors over 8 year old it is a requirement to wear a mouth-guard and shin-pads; for those under 8 we recommend the same. BHHC cannot accept responsibility for injuries resulting from not wearing them.
A bottle of water is also recommended (parents may want to bring along a hot drink on cold weekday evenings or Sunday mornings ! - this season the Clubhouse will be open on Sunday mornings for hot drinks and food !!).
