Juniors Info

Training Information

We have a thriving Junior section based at our Clubhouse and Astro Pitch in Kings College Road, Ruislip Eastro. To cope with our growing membership, this season we will also be using the new pitch at St Helens School, Northwood http://www.sthelens.london/How-To-Find-Us-Contact for our U6s and U10 Boys as well as evening slots during the week at the Eastcote pitch.

Children can start playing from Reception in the Under 6s through to U16s. As they progress through the club children gain experience in festivals, tournaments, leagues and cup games. The coaching and most of the competitions, league and cup games are played on Sunday mornings. Qualified Coaches and experienced hockey players help the children develop their skills, have fun and play in competitive hockey fixtures.

We currently have over 230 juniors playing at Eastcote. Girls and Boys from 13+ , if ready, are able to start playing Saturday League hockey with adults being introduced at appropriate stages of their development by our coaching staff.

The junior section is always looking for more people to be involved; be they coaches, helpers or administrators. Please let the Juniors Section Captain know if you might be interested.
