Our Junior Section is led by Katherine Wholey, our Junior Club Captain and supported by both Chris Simcock, Head of Performance and Coaching and Phil Hope, Junior Head Coach. They are assisted by a team of experienced coaches.

 

All our coaches hold current EHB qualifications and receive regular training in First Aid and Safeguarding. Many are also experienced players who currently play in, or coach, our senior teams.

Membership

Membership fees can be paid yearly, per session or monthly via standing order. Membership fees cover the cost of all age group training sessions. Additional training, the Performance Academy, and games may incur additional costs.

Equipment and Safety

Safety whilst playing is of fundamental importance. The club has spare hockey sticks for players to borrow. All players are strongly recommended to wear shin pads and mouth guards at all training sessions. We also recommend wearing gloves.

The game is only safe if the players play in the correct manner and listen to instruction from the qualified coaching staff. 

Club Kit

To purchase Official Fylde Kit, please visit our online club shop, where you can purchase playing/training kit and a range of gifts.

Junior Games & Selection

At Fylde HC we recognise the value of learning through gameplay. We have seen great progress from our juniors using this policy. Presently, our juniors are entered into the: England Hockey In2Hockey age group tournaments; England Hockey Championships;  Lancashire Central Women’s Hockey League for U13s and U15s; Greater Manchester Junior Hockey.

All competitions and games are entered dependent on numbers. Where we have more players than teams, places will be selected by a selection committee made up of the Head Coach, Junior Head Coach and Junior Club Captain.

Selection Criteria:

  • Player’s age

  • Hockey Ability

  • Attitude

  • Training Attendance
     

You can read our Selection Policy in full here.

As well as tournaments and games, Fylde HC coaches also look for additional opportunities for coaching, team building and tours for our junior sides.

 

Last year we took our Junior Girls U12 team to watch the Jaffa 6’s in London. This season, we are exploring the opportunity to take our U14 age group (boys and girls) on tour to Amsterdam where they will play other junior teams as well as recieve coaching from the club coaches there.
