U12s Mixed Hockey Team

U12s Mixed Hockey

U12s Mixed Hockey Team

The U12 section is open to both girls and boys. Following our coaching development plan for the U10 section, the U12 hockey sessions build on a skill development focus. Beginners are still catered for and a tiered set-up of beginners and previous experience will cater for all U12 club members.

Sport in an environment of support and quality can help children build confidence and apply themselves to develop and commit to personal development and a team. Our aim is to support every child in their development, through hockey as an outlet, but also as an opportunity to express themselves and build positive connections with those around them.

Coaches involved

Joe Gleeson (Director of Junior Hockey) & Ben Boon (GB Development & Surbiton HC) will be delivering the U12’s programme this season. Ben offers a wealth of experience having played for Great Britain U21’s and is currently involved with the GB Development programme. He also plays in the top English league having played for Reading Hockey Club for 5 years, he has now moved to table topping Surbiton Hockey Club for the 2018/19 season. We are excited for Ben to pass on his knowledge to our young players.

Junior helpers, aged 14-18, some who were part of the Merchant Taylors’ School U18 National Champions side will assist the U12’s. They are not only excellent coaches who deliver on their school junior program but they are also the players that are going to help inspire our young players to develop the most.
