Feeling inspired? Here at Epsom HC we run a thriving juniors section. The aims are quite simple:
“To develop children, players, between the ages of 7 and 17 in the in the game of hockey. To improve equally the skills of all players, whatever their standard.”
We group children by ability within broad age categories as this allows us to better tailor the coaching to the group as a whole and to each child. Each season we spend the first three weeks of the season assessing the groups. Following this each broad age category still trains as a group at the same time, but within we split into ability sessions. This hopefully allows all to train with their peer group but whilst matching ability. We continually assess the children and their performances compared to their peers. This assessment exercise particularly applies across the age bands from 7 to 11 and, for girls, 12 to 14, when they start 11-a-side and which experience shows is too early for some.
Mini Festivals involving other clubs take place throughout the season for the younger age groups and there are 11-a-side league and friendly matches for the older juniors.
