Juniors/Colts

We are a friendly club, and we coach and organise hockey for children of all abilities from Reception year at school through to 18 (and beyond).

ClubsFirst logoBBHC are ClubsFirst accredited by England Hockey, which means the quality of our coaching, development and safety is recognised and guided by the official sports body for hockey in England. (more information about our club’s policies on equality, ethics and safety is further down this page)

Hockey Training & Games for Youngsters

Coaching is held on the astro-turf pitches at Erith School. This is normally done on Sunday mornings, weekly during the regular season in the winter, and monthly during the off-season in the summer.

The 2014/15 regular season has now finished.  The summer 2015 off-season is about to begin but this year it is moving to Saturdays.  Those dates for your diaries are:

  • Saturday 16th May – 9:30 to 11am at Erith School.
  • Saturday 13th June – 9:30 to 11am at Erith School.
  • Saturday 11th July – 9:30 to 11am at Erith School.
  • Saturday 15th August – 9:30 to 11am at Erith School.

If you would like to give hockey a go, or enjoyed hockey at school and want to join in: COME AND PLAY!

Contact Andrei, Youth Development Officer with any questions.

JDC & Schools Coaching

BBHC’s coaches all complete their Level 1 Hockey Coaching certificate as a minimum and are CRB checked (now called Disclosure & Barring Service) to help safeguard the children and ensure a good standard of hockey coaching.

Together with Burnt Ash Hockey Club and with the help of Bexley Council, we manage the North West Kent Junior Development Centre (JDC). This is a district squad and is the first step to playing hockey at county level (and ultimately for England). We also help organise and support primary and secondary school hockey festivals in and around Bexley, and supply experienced coaches for curricular and after-school activities.

Equipment

Children should wear a tracksuit or shorts/tops suitable for playing sport, and trainers (not studded boots because we train on an astro-turf pitch). They need shin-pads (we have a few available to borrow) and we recommend a gum-shield. We have a supply of hockey sticks of course.

Don’t forget a drink too!
