Aimed at ages 6-16, we have a rapidly growing and successful junior section with over 50 active members, many of whom graduate into the adult teams. We are a club that emphasises the fun aspects of hockey and we like to run social events such as Christmas and Halloween Parties, as well as Parents vs Kids matches and fancy dress days.
The juniors train on Sunday mornings (10:30 to 12:00) on the astroturf at Southbury Leisure Centre, Southbury Road, Enfield EN1 1YP, and we also run U10 and U12 age group teams that play matches each month in the Hertfordshire junior league. All our coaches are qualified according to England Hockey guidelines and all are DBS checked.

Who can join?
There’s no need to worry about ability or experience, all children from ages 6-16 are welcome.
What do the sessions include?
Sessions include skills practice and games with our friendly coaching team, plus matches and tournaments throughout the season. The sessions aim to provide a fun and friendly family atmosphere where children can develop hockey expertise and skills. We will also focus on teamwork, fitness and promote good sportsmanship.
We provide sticks and balls but you’re welcome to bring along your own stick if you have one. Players should wear comfortable sports gear and trainers, not studs. England Hockey require that under 18s wear shin pads and a mouth guard for training and matches. You should also bring along a drink and, as hockey is a winter sport, some spare warm clothing and a waterproof top just in case it rains.
We would ask that all junior members purchase a purple shirt and socks when they join us. These are necessary for our club’s competitive games and are also a great way of making everyone feel that they are part of the club’s junior section. When playing in competitive games the children should all wear black shorts or skorts, shin pads and mouth guards. Please visit our Club Kit page for full details.
What does it cost to join?
All new members will get a few taster sessions free before committing to a full membership. We also offer a discounted membership rate for siblings. Please visit our Membership page for prices and details of how to pay.
Mums and dads
Drop the kids off with us and have an hour and a half to yourself every Sunday morning. With Southbury Leisure Centre on our doorstep, you can enjoy a hot drink in the indoor café or, if you’re feeling energetic, maybe spend some time at the gym. Of course, all parents are welcome to stick around and watch the session – or better still, you can have a go yourself!
