Squad / team level communications will come out from relevant team managers via Pitchero, so existing players/parents please make sure all your details are up to date in the your membership section on Pitchero.

All our training sessions are led by qualified coaches supported by senior players from the Club. The training will commence from 10 Sept 2019 through to April 2020 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).

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 !
