Junior Hockey Information

Junior Hockey with Gore court is fun, friendly and an exciting way for children to take part in team sports. Not only do we work on hockey skills we ensure that life skills are built for the future. Training sessions are every Sunday morning at Westlands Secondary School in Sittingbourne with England Hockey Qualified and DBS checked Coaches. The pitch is designed in a way that parents can easily spectate from up close. We take pride in ensuring children have as much fun as possible at training and tournaments with a relaxed and welcoming environment. We cater for both boys and girls and operate mixed teams from Under 8s to Under 12s and then boys and girls teams for U14 to U16.
