The junior section of Sheffield Hockey Club is highly successful. We employ an open-door policy to our Sunday training, welcoming all boys and girls from around 5 to 16 years. With more than 200 regular players, Sheffield has 16 teams playing in the Yorkshire Youth Leagues. Junior teams participate in the Yorkshire Youth Hockey Leagues (YYHL) each month and U14s to U18s take part in England Hockey Board tournaments.
On a Sunday morning and Thursday evening our juniors benefit from the expertise provided by successful adult players and England hockey qualified coaches. All of our coaches and managers have completed relevant DBS checks.
All junior coaching sessions are held at Abbeydale Sports Club on a Sunday morning and Thursday evening, whilst the YYHL fixtures consist of a number of matches at various locations throughout Yorkshire.
You are warmly welcomed to come along and support your child when selected, and who knows, you may get bitten by the 'hockey bug' and perhaps join our band of volunteers by qualifying as a coach or umpire.
