Junior Section

As we welcome back players from last season and say hello to new faces, we wanted to take the time to say thank you for choosing Fylde HC! In this section you will find all the information you need to know for the upcoming Junior Season.

Our Junior Section is led by Phil Hope, our Junior Club Captain and 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 and games played.

Information on how to complete a membership form and payment can be found here.

 

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 tournaments; England Hockey Championships;  Lancashire North Tournaments for u8s, U10s, u12's and U14's; 

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                                                                                     meet our two newest 6yr old members

 

You can read our Selection Policy in full here.                                                Will and Jude

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