Hockey training for boys and girls aged 6 - 14

Cambridge South Hockey Club’s junior section trains weekly during the hockey season between September and March, with the younger groups on Saturday mornings and older groups on midweek evenings. Training sessions are led by professional coaches assisted by club player-coaches.

The sessions are for boys and girls, aimed at players from year 2 to year 9 (ages 6 to 14). Training is based around the ‘Quicksticks’ (for younger children) and In2Hockey (for older players) forms of the game played in schools. The junior sessions are focused on teaching and developing basic skills and team play, ultimately providing a pathway towards senior team hockey. Junior players can start to train and play with the club’s senior teams, alongside their age-group based hockey, from age 13 upwards.

We offer a free 3 session taster for new players to try out without commitment. The subscription fee is due your fourth session - if you decide not to continue beyond your first 3 sessions there is nothing to pay!

Each child who has completed their taster and paid subs receives a purple club playing T-shirt. Navy shorts and purple socks are also available to purchase at training. Other kit, including navy skorts as well as sweatshirts, hoodies, beanies and rain jackets may be ordered via the online club shop.

No previous hockey experience is necessary and beginners are welcomed. All sticks, balls and equipment are provided, but players may bring their own stick if they have one (please label clearly). Players require comfortable sportswear and trainers with grippy soles, and should bring a water bottle. Mouthguards and shinguards are strongly recommended for all players.

Junior players who are eligible and also wish to play or train with the club’s senior section (age 13+) are not required to pay separate senior membership subs. Usual senior match fees will be payable.

To apply for a place, or for more information, please fill in the contact form on this page. Following confirmation of a place, a Registration and Consent form must be completed and returned before a player may attend a session.
