New Players Welcome

Youth Development Programme:
North Somerset Hockey Club runs a large and vibrant Youth Development Programme welcoming 6 to 16 year old boys and girls. Players can be selected to train and play with senior teams from the age of 13 with junior and adult coaches working closely to develop players.

At North Somerset we recognise the need to develop talent, through structured coaching and player mentoring, in a safe and friendly environment. Our coaching programme is designed by a qualified England Hockey coach and is in place to work with the England Hockey Player Patchway which developes talent and provides a route map for the development of youth talent. Our coaches are DBS checked and are experienced in positively encouraging junior players to develop and work on their core skills and teamworking.

Welfare and Safety:
The welfare of junior members is of prime importance to us. We have experienced welfare officers ready to offer advice and guidance on hockey or life matters where required. All North Somerset players are strongly advised to wear protective clothing when playing hockey, including:
• Gum Shield
• Shin Pads
• Hockey Glove(s)

2018/19 TRAINING SESSION TIMES:
Youth training sessions will begin on Sunday, 1st September 2019 and plan to run until the May half term, with breaks for Christmas and Easter. The sessions run every Sunday from 0930 until 1130. Year 5 and below for the first hour, year 6 and above for the second hour.

Juniors can purchase club kit from our online supplier Logoworks.

Getting Started:

• Under 10’s (Mixed)
• Under 12’s (Mixed)
• Badgers (Under 16’s) (mixed)

Please be aware that age groups may be mixed in the early part of the season until numbers grow sufficiently. Matches are mainly played on Sundays and will be arranged as often as possible, U10 and U12 play in the Avon Junior League Competitions and Badgers play normally every other Sunday in a League around the Bristol Area. Parents are very welcome to attend and assist during match days to allow the coaching staff to fully focus on the player and match.
