Playing with a smile on our faces
We believe the most important thing with junior hockey is that players should enjoy it. Mastering skills & fitness is important and improves performance and results, but we want our juniors to continue playing into adulthood. That means making the club environment supportive so that players feel they can learn from mistakes, not be criticised for them.
We also take Safeguarding & protecting young people very seriously and follow all the England Hockey proceedures. If you have any concerns over poor coach practise or a member / coach's behaviour, please contact our Welfare Officer - Jimmy England 07850 173 244.
Details on Safeguarding policies are on the England Hockey website
