Southampton Hockey Club recognises the importance of developing young hockey players. The Club looks to help develop junior skills and develop an understanding for the rules of hockey. However the most important aspect is that they have fun and enjoy the sport.
Southampton has a very successful junior section with players regularly progressing into all levels of the adult section. A large number are regularly selected for Junior Regional Performance Centre (JRPC) training camps, which often leads to players representing the region.
There are a number of Mini's tournament held throughout the season locally.
At SHC, we host a tournament annually attracting over 300 junior hockey player on our two pitches on a Sunday morning.
As with all sports there is an element of risk and to help to minimise this all juniors should attend all training sessions with the following items:-
•Suitable footwear (e.g. trainers or Astros)
•Suitable clothing (e.g. shorts, tracksuit bottom, tee-shirt, sweater)
