Changes to age groups in Summer term

In the summer term, we move everyone into their age groups for next season.  This gives the coaches a chance to start work on the squads for the following season.
The biggest change is for those in year 7, who move to the 10.45am session and year 9 who move to the 12.30 session.  However, note changes in timings for the first week only, see (2) below

We recommend everyone wears shin pads and a gum shield. We have these available to buy in our shop which is open on some Sundays, advertised in advance. Most players have their own sticks, but we have a supply for those that don’t. Players should wear comfortable sports gear and trainers, not studs.



The coaching we offer is second to none. We have two top quality coaches who head up the coaching team: John Shaw, Southgate first team player for over 15 years who won over 200 caps for his country and is fantastic at inspiring young people. Martin Foxall, a superb coach of young hockey players who has previously coached teams to win the National U16 Championship and is widely regarded as one of the best coaches of young players in the country. We have a coaching team working under John and Martin, looking after the individual squads and an army of helpers and junior coaches.
