Training Information

We have a thriving Junior section based at our Clubhouse and Astro Pitch in Kings College Road, Ruislip Eastro. To cope with our growing membership, this season we will also be using the new pitch at St Helens School, Northwood http://www.sthelens.london/How-To-Find-Us-Contact for our U6s and U8s.

Every Sunday from September to April we organise coaching in age groups, supplemented by Tournaments , League and Cup games. Qualified Coaches and experienced hockey players help the children develop their skills, have fun and play in competitive hockey fixtures.

Children can start playing from Reception in the Under 6s beginners club. Boys and girls then move on to the Under 8s. These groups are run from St Helens School. For the U10 and U12 groups the girls and boys coaching is spilt with league and cup competitions at U14 and U16 levels for the boys and girls. This year we are proud to launch an U18 Boys team in conjunction with Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club. This team is to be called East & West U18 Boys. The coaching and most of the competitions, league and cup games are played on Sunday mornings.

We currently have over 200 juniors playing at Eastcote. Girls and Boys from 13+ are able to start playing Saturday League hockey with adults being introduced at appropriate stages of their development by our coaching staff.

The junior section is always looking for more people to be involved; be they coaches, helpers or administrators. Please let the Juniors Section Captain know if you might be interested.

Schedule

Sunday Coaching: Starts on 9 September 2018 and runs until the end of April, except Christmas, New Year and Easter. Please check your times and venue as this season sees many changes.

New Kit for 2018!

Following a club decision, the colours for the men’s and boys section of the club are changing to come into line with the women’s and girls.  Everyone will play with navy shorts or skorts and the men/boys will no longer be in white shorts.  This will give a more unified look to the club and we have also switched suppliers and brands. 

Please note that you only need to buy the new branded kit when your child has grown out of their existing kit.  We anticipate that it will take a couple of seasons for all our members to graduate over to the Adidas kit.  We would ask you though from September 9th that all junior boys are in navy shorts.

Hawkin Sports will be coming to the Juniors first training session on Sunday 9th September 9:30am – 1:00pm so that you can buy or order your kit.  If you are 13 or over please remember to contact Lenny or Craig to get your shirt number before you place your order.
