Bournemouth Hockey Club is extremely proud to have 14 junior teams offering training and match play for youngsters as young as 6 through to 18. Led by junior chairman Gavin Rusling, the club grows from strength to strength in junior and colt development.
Many of our junior members also support our adult teams and from the age of 13 can participate in league matches and join adult club training at the invitation of the men’s / ladies club captains and coaches.
The 2016-17 season was another excellent year for our junior teams and players as individuals.
Add to this several Hampshire league titles and the unprecedented achievement of getting our U14/16/18 boys teams to Hampshire Cup finals and we can be very proud of those players.
As individuals, this has been a year of change in the player pathway and it has been great to see well over 30 boys and girls making it to the new High Performance Centres.
Training nights are spread across three evenings and regularly see over 150 children aged 6-16 attend.
Also during school holidays the hockey doesn’t end! Regular training camps are run by Performance Coach Adam Tapper with International, Junior International and top level coaches including Tim Nurse (England U18 & Bath Buccs HC), Ben Boon (GB U23 & Reading HC) and Tomek Bruml (England Junior & Havant HC).
If you’re interested in your child joining the club in the first instance please get in touch with Kevin Candy. We’ll need to know your child’s gender & school year to help direct you to the most suitable club information.
