IES Juniors offers affordable hockey to young people of any ability aged 6-16yrs. Whether you are just starting out in the sport or have been playing for years, we have training and match play opportunities to suit everyone.

U8, U10, U12, U14 Training – 09:00 – 10:30 (Boys and Girls)

End of Season

The official ‘End of Season’ event will be our awards and family picnic on Sunday 8 May 2022

Summer training

Sunday training is planned to run from Sunday 15 May until Sunday 5 July. These training sessions will be used to transition players into their new age groups ready for September, as well as enabling everyone to continue to work on their hockey skills.


We have a mix of qualified adult coaches and young leaders for each age group, with a wealth of experience and knowledge in hockey and working with young people. This allows us to tailor our training sessions to the individual players and offer more personal support depending on their needs and goals.


Your child will need shin pads and a gum shield to play hockey; we have some hockey sticks available to borrow each week if you don’t have one to start with. We train outside, so please come dressed for the weather, with trainers or astroturf shoes.


There is a weekly training fee of £2.50 per child. The yearly membership subscription is £60 per child, with sibling discounts available.
