Youth Academy training is held on a Sunday morning, it is split into 2 sessions, the Wombles and Badgers (10-11.30am) which comprises of players aged 13 or under; and the Colts (11.30am-1pm) for ages 13 to 18. More information for juniors and their parents here.
The season runs from September to early July with the normal breaks for Christmas and Easter. In icy weather Astro pitches can freeze, so be prepared for some possible cancellations.
We welcome players of all ages and abilities. You'll need to come along wearing clothes and footwear suitable for sport and layers for when it gets cold. We recommend all players wear gum shields and shin pads, but don't let this stop you trying out hockey in the first place.
We have a supply of training sticks to use if you are new to hockey.
We are an active, family-friendly and motivated club, with a wide community sport focus beyond the vicinity of St Neots. At Longsands College we use a brand-new latest generation astroturf pitch with great amenities.
Hockey is a fast-growing participation sport in the UK. Interest has really taken off since the GB ladies won GOLD at the Rio Olympics! Anyone inspired to take up hockey can get involved at any level of the club from beginners and juniors progressing right up to the first team!
In 2012, the London Olympics created great opportunities for hockey. For the first time ever, our GB Womens team made the final of the Champions Trophy, and gained a silver medal ahead of Holland and Germany, losing only to Argentina. In 2015 our region hosted the EuroHockey championships and our Ladies took Gold there too.
We have a strong and growing junior Academy section where children from a wide selection of local schools are having fun building the future of the club, employing EHB qualified coaches. We are affiliated to the England Hockey Board, where we have access to performance coaching as our young hockey players develop their skills. We typically enter the England National U14/U16 competitions so everyone can have age-appropriate playing opportunities.
We operate a Youth Development Squad as a route for players to progress to our Mens, Ladies, Mixed and (eventually) Veteran teams, which play in leagues mostly across East Anglia.
The Adult leagues cater for all levels meaning that it is possible for anyone to get involved, so while experienced returning players will find themselves welcomed into the higher levels, it is easy for anyone new to Hockey to find a home in one of our teams.
