Leicester Westleigh Mens Hockey Club's aim is to provide a safe fun environment for juniors from the ages of 6 to 18 for both boys and girls to learn to play hockey. The club has just moved to English Martyrs Catholic School, and made coaching links with the school, we offer fantastic new facilities including the pitch. After many years of junior coaching this new link with the school will offer juniors both girls and boys the chance to have fun, learn and play hockey. The club offer coaching from 6 years onwards in a fun environment. Our coaching aim is to get players to enjoy, play and achieve.
The club have had great success in our long history bringing juniors through into the men’s league teams. In the past few years Leicester Westleigh Mens Hockey Club have started up two junior satellite clubs. This has allowed the club to coach players from their very first "push of a ball". It has also highlighted the club to local schools. Through this work Leicester Westleigh Mens Hockey Club have grown both clubs with the aim so they can participate in junior matches and tournaments.
The club have experienced coaches who all started off in school or junior club hockey and know how to deliver the core skills whilst having fun. All Leicester Westleigh Mens Hockey Club coaches hold England Hockey Coaching Qualifications. All coaches and regular volunteers are DBS (previously CRB) checked.
