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 10 Sept 2018 through to May 2019 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 (details will be posted on the News pages of the website).

The weekly training schedule is:

Tuesday evenings:-
5:30 - 6:30 (North Pitch) : U10 (year 5) Boys and Girls: All players / new joiners

Matches for the different age groups - either home or away. Older juniors (U16s, Flippers, Gulls, Starlings, etc..) will have games on Saturdays.

*NOTE: The Junior Performance training session (Tues) will be strictly by invitation only - so if a player is not on the relevant register/has not been given the relevant shoelace-tag (see registration page), they will not be able to take part. ONLY Jon and Wendy (senior coaches) will decide who can attend this session. The juniors invited to these sessions are expected (must) also attend their age group training session as well.

Fees for the 2018/19 season will be:

  • Annual subs (Sept to May) - £100 per child
  • Annual sub (second or more sibling) - £95 per child
  • Half year sub (Sept - Dec or Jan - May) - £55 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.

See Registration page for how to register your child and obtain shoe-tag. Parents MUST REGISTER on-line and obtain shoelace-tag 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.

Training kit
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 !
