Junior Kit Details

As a club we are constantly striving to smarten our club image during matches and training.

We encourage all players/families to invest in match kit. Details for the 2023/2024 season are being finalised.

The minimum kit a player should have is:
– club shorts or skort
– club shirt
– club socks

We expect all players to wear correct kit when representing the club.

Other items like jumpers, bobble hats and coats can be purchased from our local supplier, Star Sportswear.

To view the full selection visit Star Sportswear at Unit 5, Yeomans Ind Park, Yeomans Way, Bournemouth BH8 0BJ, tel: 01202 522519.

Please note that we have included a plain black baselayer on our kit list. This is not regulation, however, if baselayers are worn they must be plain black only.

All shirt numbers are controlled by the club to minimise duplicates and we always aim to give siblings the same number to enable kit to be passed down.

All shirts should have family names printed not first names or nicknames.

Juniors Playing Adult Hockey

Juniors who are 13 and over are eligible to play adult hockey in our ladies and men’s teams on Saturdays.

Juniors playing on Saturdays will need to pay a £6 match fee but there are no additional annual subs.

If you are interested in knowing more please contact Gavin.

New or Return to Hockey Wednesdays

We are piloting an initiative for children new or returning to hockey who feel they need some time and space with a coach to practice the basics before joining their normal age group training.

No booking needed just speak to the coach or coordinator nearest the gate. This is open to school years 6+.

Thinking About Joining The Club

New children are welcome to attend 3 training sessions before making a decision to join the club.

To ensure children are insured there is a £20 fee for the trial sessions which is deducted from their annual subscription if you join.

New members joining between Jan-Mar will pay half annual subs.

Please be aware that photographs may be taken during training and matches, and that these may be used in club promotional publications, club website and Facebook/Twitter pages.
