Our thriving Junior section consists of around 200 players of all standards, who come together at Sheffield Hockey Club to enjoy their hockey and make new friends. As our potential next 1st team players of the future our juniors play a pivotal role in the on-going development and success of the club. Our Junior teams, both boys and girls, include Under 9's to U16s who play in the Yorkshire Youth Hockey Leagues (YYHL) each month, and U16s and U18s who take part in England Hockey Board (EHB) tournaments - both indoor and outdoor.
Sheffield Hockey Club gained 'ClubsFirst' Accreditation back in 2005 and in 2010 this was renewed, re-affirming our commitment to providing a safe and effective child-friendly environment in which to play hockey.
Our enthusiastic coaching team is led by one of a handful of EHB centrally contracted coaches, who has the experience of leading England Youth teams and managing his own girls as they progress through the club. Qualified and CRB checked Coaches and team managers are in place not only to develop hockey skills, but to act as mentors, identify areas for development in players and should be regarded as your first point of contact should you or your child have any queries or concerns.
All coaching sessions are held at Abbeydale Sports Club, whilst the YYHL fixtures usually consist of a number of short duration matches at other locations throughout Yorkshire. You are warmly welcomed to come along and support your child when selected, and who knows, you may get bitten by the 'hockey bug' or perhaps join our band of volunteers by qualifying as a coach or umpire.
