Welcome back to hockey at City of Portsmouth Hockey Club Junior section.
Training at Admiral Lord Nelson (Saturdays 9-10.30am) with home matches taking place at Furze Lane, University pitches.
Membership fees are fixed at the same price as last year: £80 for the year. These are now due: an initial payment of £20 is due by 1st October with all fees to be paid by 31st October. Please see Andrea.
Pete Atkins and Ivan Boswell coach at Saturday training, assisted by Pete H, Nicky, Paul, Neil P and other helpers, for which we are very grateful.
‘Minis’ (U8 and U10) have festivals once a month where a number of short matches are played at a central venue, 7-a-side on a quarter of a pitch.
U12s are entered into a league where teams have one match per fixture, on the full pitch, 11-a-side.
The U14s have been entered into a 7-a-side league which is run on a similar system to the minis. Our older Junior players (13+) are being encouraged to make links with the Senior section and start to train with them in preparation for senior games, when they are ready. Please contact the managers and coaches for information.
Below are the contacts for the teams:
‘Minis’ U8 (Mixed) - Manager:
Dan Hargreaves - firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Minis’ U10 (Mixed) - Manager:
Ivan Boswell - email@example.com
U12 (Mixed) - Managers:
Paul Barnes - firstname.lastname@example.org
Pete Hayward - HAYWARD_PETER@LILLY.com
All match fees are £2 this year and children are expected to wear navy shorts/skorts, navy socks with shin pads and a mouth guard. Team shirts are provided. (For Minis bear in mind that they are outside for a couple of hours and need to be warm, so tracksuit trousers are acceptable). All matches are on astroturf, therefore trainers are needed.
Please see managers/coaches on a Saturday if a stick is required, as all players bring their own to matches.
Kit is now ordered through the ‘Silverfx’ and can be done online and orders are delivered to Nikki H.
From the youngest to the oldest we want to wish all our players a very successful and enjoyable season.
