Banbridge Hockey Club Junior and Youth Sections will hold a registration event this weekend at Havelock Park.

All boys and girls interested in playing hockey this season from nursery up to under 15 level should come along with their parents to Havelock Park on Saturday 27th August anytime between 9.00am – 4.00pm to ensure they register for the appropriate coaching section, complete the necessary paperwork, pay fees and guarantee coaching places for this season.

This season BHC Executive Committee member Rachel Groves will take over as Junior Hockey Coordinator for the club.

BHC Junior Hockey Co-Ordinator Rachel Groves stated;  “I am looking forward to taking on the new role of Junior Coordinator.  I would like to pay tribute to my predecessor Julie Sally who acted as Junior Coordinator for many years and is largely responsible for the success Junior club we have here at Banbridge. I am very passionate about getting more children and young people involved in hockey and progressing the sport across all age groups and I hope by taking on this new and challenging role I will be able to do so.”

“Banbridge Hockey Club provide excellent coaching and facilities for boys and girls playing hockey from pre-school age upwards.  This season we are asking parents to come along to the relevant registration events where each parent will receive an information pack outlining the dates and times of training sessions and find out more about the club.  We would also encourage any parents who are able to help in anyway with the juniors to speak with us, we are constantly looking for helpers and volunteers within the junior club. ”

The boys and girls will again train separately in Primary School, under 13 and 15 groups with matches and tournaments organized throughout the season.  Once players reach 15 years old they become eligible to play for their respective men’s and ladies section with weekly training and matches available in variety of cup & league competitions.
