A very warm welcome to the Richmond Hockey Club Junior Section.
This is a really exciting time in the development of our Juniors – we have grown from a group of 30 children when we set up in 2003 to over 500 members to date!
The Section is overseen by a group of really enthusiastic volunteers who are always keen to improve what is on offer for the children.
We offer training for boys and girls aged 7-18 years old and run teams at all ages, competing in leagues across the home counties.
Each age group accommodates children of all abilities and we coach boys and girls separately throughout the Junior Club. We stream the age groups based on ability. This helps us to concentrate on each sub group’s needs and means that children are training with others of an equivalent ability.
Our U12s upwards compete in various leagues across the home counties. We very much encourage our better Senior Juniors (who may have filtered up into the Senior Club) to put something back into the Club by coming and helping at Junior training on a regular basis.
Our age group system is based upon the age of your child on 1 September of the current season
