Academy (ages 6-12)

The Whitchurch Hockey Academy offers coaching for children from as young as 6 up to U12 (Year 7).  We can provide sticks and shin pads, and anyone is welcome to turn up and try it out – just bring a drink (water is best!) and suitable clothing for the weather.

Under 10 and Under 12 Telford Tournaments

We will continue to enter U12 and U10 mixed sides into monthly Sunday tournaments at Telford, and will announce this year’s dates when they have been confirmed.

U12s may also get an opportunity to take part in the Junior Section CVL league games.
