Senior Pathway

Junior players become eligible to play in our adult teams at the age of 13, progression into the weekly senior training is offered by invitation - it considers several factors assessed on a player-by-player basis:

  • Stage of player’s development

  • Player’s age

  • Attitude and commitment

  • Current squad numbers

  • Safeguarding needs

  • Ratio of players to coaches

We monitor the transition from junior to adult hockey carefully and review it on a regular basis to ensure that the move is made at the right time for each child.
