For ages 8 to 15 year olds
The Club provides the chance for young people between the ages of 8 and 15 to receive coaching from qualified hockey coaches.
Jonathan Mawson runs the youth training sessions at Boston Spa School and welcomes anyone, from absolute beginner to experienced player, so if you want to try hockey out as a sport or are looking to advance the skills you have gained at school or elsewhere, then please come along. Our club President John Mawson Sr is also involved in supporting junior coaching.
Training sessions at the school are on Sunday mornings between 10am-12noon during term times.
There is a nominal charge of £2 per child per session, to part-cover pitch hire and insurance costs.
With a team of qualified, enthusiastic coaches, we encourage children to play hockey in a safe and friendly environment. We welcome parents to all training and value all support.
Your child will need to provide his/her own playing kit and trainers, including warm clothing (e.g. tracksuit, sweatshirt etc.). Players must wear shin pads, and we advise that they wear a gum shield. Players should bring along any refreshments they need.
Playing equipment such as sticks and balls are provided. Please be aware that training is weather dependant, so that occasionally sessions have to be cancelled! Would parents please note that children should not be left at school without first checking that a session will take place. Occasionally circumstances dictate that a session cannot be held and we don't want children left at school unsupervised for 2 hours!
If you have any questions about our junior training, please use our contact form or contact Elliott White directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07951337825, alternatively you can contact John Mawson at email@example.com.
