Is your child interested in joining Havant Minis?
The Minis training (under 8’s and under 10’s) takes place on the Astro pitch at Havant College, PO91QL. Sunday mornings from 9am to 11am, September to Easter holidays.
Your child is welcome to come along and have a try to see if they like it. The sessions are a mix of games, skills and match practice with an emphasis on fun and inclusivity.
They do not need to purchase any club kit, but they will need shin pads, a good fitting mouth guard, a snack and some water. The club has sticks that can be borrowed if necessary. Mouth guards can be bought online or at sports direct, I would strongly advise that you fit it at home and make sure they are happy with the fit.
After coming to a few sessions we would ask you to join your child as a junior member of the club. Details can be found on the club website http://www.havanthockeyclub.org.uk/Membership.html. There are discounts available for siblings, families etc. To join the club you will need to complete the online membership form via the log in tab. An important aspect of doing this is that it allows the club managers to have your childs contact details and any medical information that may be relevant.
Throughout the season besides training there are a number of friendly hockey tournaments where we travel to play other teams in the local area. These are usually on Sunday mornings. Everyone will get a chance to play and they are great fun. We also have a fancy dress for Halloween and xmas jumpers for Christmas, plus a kids v parents match (the kids favourite) with prize giving at the end of the season.
Havant is a great inclusive hockey club with 12 junior teams from Under 18’s to Under 8’s and children coming from a variety of schools throughout the area. All of the coaches and managers are volunteers and we welcome any support parents can offer.
I will be pitch side at the beginning of the training sessions taking the register and happy to answer any questions you may have.
Look forward to meeting you,
Havant Hockey Club
