Girls and Boys U7 (year 2)

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).

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.

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 !)
