Mini Tournaments 18/19

The dates are in for the 2018/19 mini tournaments/festivals, get them in the diary!

  • Sun 21st Oct – Fareham
  • Sun 28th Oct – Haslemere
  • Sun 18th Nov – City of Portsmouth
  • Sun 9th Dec – Gosport
  • Sun 13th Jan – Chichester
  • Sun 3rd Feb – Petersfield
  • Sun 3rd March – Hamble
  • Sun 31st March – Havant

These events are a fun and friendly group of matches against other mini sections from local clubs.  Each club hosts the other clubs at their pitch and we play a round robin of short games.  The focus is on joining in and having fun for the children (and tea/cake for the adults!).

As space is limited the coaches will usually pick two teams from both the U8s and U10s for each tournament depending on availability.  All children will get a chance to play in a team throughout the season so if your child isn’t selected for the first tournament don’t worry.

If you can’t make any of the dates, please let us know ahead of time so we can plan the teams accordingly.  Just drop me an email.

Looking forward to some great hockey..




Great to be back!

Thank you all for turning up to our first training session today, it was good to see so many retuning players and new faces joining our teams with such enthusiasm and energy.

There were a few questions that came up today so thought i would clarify!

Club Kit

As you have probably seen we have a new kit supplier for Club Playing Kit which can be ordered online for club members.  Go to the club website click on the login link and then select “shop” for access to the online store.

There is no requirement for the minis to purchase a playing shirt at this time.  We’ll continue to use last seasons shirts for tournaments and will hand them out on the day via your coaches as normal.

Of course if you want to buy your child one of the new shirts (great Christmas present!) you are more than welcome, however they are not a requirement for tournaments for this season.

The only thing unavailable from the online store is the new club socks.  You can buy these direct from myself at training, the cost is £10.  I have about 10 pairs in stock size 12-2.  If you want a pair let me know.

Tournament Dates

I don’t have the dates yet for the tournaments and i know we are all keen to get them in the diary.  As soon as i have confirmation i’ll update the blog.


Players are required to remove their earrings or cover them with tape for training.


Membership needs to be paid by the end of October, details are on the club website.

New members are more than welcome to attend our training (for free!) as a taster, however we ask that you join the club before the end of October if you intend to continue for the season (and we hope you do!).

Next Week

Sophie will be taking the register next week as i’m away for the weekend (i know shocking so early in the season).  Please make sure you tick the register so we comply with our safeguarding policies.

Jon will be coaching the U8’s and Tom the U10’s for this session.

Any questions let me know via email or mobile : 07932 746174.
