WELCOME TO THE 2019/2020 SEASON

The season starts in September 2019.

OUR FIRST TRAINING SESSION WILL BE HELD ON 8TH SEPTEMBER 2019.
10am to 12pm
Becket Keys School Astro

Brentwood Hockey Club has a thriving youth hockey section, so please come along and join in.

Ages at mini hockey range from 5 to 12, both boys and girls.

Sessions run from 10am to 12pm each Sunday at the Astroturf at Becket Keys School (Sawyers Hall Lane, CM15 9DA). All abilities are welcome.

Older children (13 to 16) will go into our Academy sides who train on Tuesdays 7:00 to 9:00.

All children should bring the following: suitable sports clothing for the weather, trainers (or Astroturf shoes), shinpads and gumshield (if they have them) and a bottle of drink.

We have a large selection of sticks for new starters to use, so it is not necessary to buy one immediately,

The emphasis at training is to make it an enjoyable experience for the children, so that they can have fun, get fit and make friends. They will at the same time be given instruction in all the basic skills required and the basics of team play and tactics.

At Brentwood we offer:

· Teams entered into the Essex Mini Hockey League

· Academy indoor teams entered into the Essex Indoor League

· Junior teams entered into #IndoorHockey19 played at The Copper Box E20

· A pathway to representative hockey at Essex and East Regional levels (and beyond!)

Subscriptions this year remain at £80, which includes match fees and a shirt for new members.

If you have any questions, please get in touch. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Regards

Simon Parsons
Youth Chairman
