We welcome children 5 -12 years old, to our Hookin2Hockey program at our Kingston Heath Reserve Pitch at Farm Road in Cheltenham.

The Hookin2Hockey program commences on Friday 16th February. You can choose between the Friday afternoon (5-6pm) or Saturday morning (9-10am) sessions. The Program finishes end of term 1. After that kids can continue their hockey journey in the Under8, Under10 or Under12 age group during the winter season (term 2 and term 3).

Join our Free Come&Try Session either Friday 16 February (5-6pm) or Saturday 17 Feb (9-10am).  Please wear runners and sports gear to the Come&Try Session and bring a water bottle (with your name on it). The club will provide sticks and balls at the Come&Try Session. We like to ask you to try to be there about 10-15 minutes before the session starts so we can start on time.

The most important thing is that the kids get a good idea of hockey and have lots of fun while they are out there on the pitch.

After the session you can register your child, online, for the 5 following weeks of the program (starting the week after-Friday 23 February/Saturday 24 February).

Hookin2Hockey is delivered across a number of weeks and gives your child the opportunity to learn the basic skills of hockey, develop fundamental motor skills and make friends all while beginning his/her lifelong love of hockey!

The cost for this great 6 week introduction program (WITHOUT a hockey equipment pack) is $90 per child. 

All sessions take place in term 1 and will be at our Kingston Heath Reserve pitch at Farm Road in Cheltenham.

Registration for the Hookin2Hockey program is now open.
