Youth Section

Whitchurch Hockey Club welcomes young players from the age of 7. Our philosophy is that every player is important, every player should have the opportunity to play youth matches, and all our hockey is underpinned by a code of conduct based on the word "RESPECT" - Respect your team-mates, your opponents, your coaches, the umpires and officials. We also expect parents & guardians to follow the code of conduct. These are outlined in our annual newsletter.

We currently run 22 youth sides, we have approximately 290 boys & girls aged 7 to 18

Depending on numbers in each age group membership is open to any young player wishing to join. This can be done by contacting the Director of Youth Hockey This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
