Harpenden HC - Junior Section

H.H.C Juniors

Welcome to the home of Harpenden H.C Juniors.

Over the years our junior section has grown steadily to become one of the largest centres for junior hockey in Hertfordshire. Currently we have over 180 members.

We run training sessions in according to age group on Sundays and Mondays from September until Easter. Our youngest age group, U8s takes boys and girls in years 1,2 and 3 at school. This section and all the girls sections train on Sundays. The boys sections meet on Monday evenings. Further information on timings can be found on the junior training page of the website. 

All our junior sections also participate in junior competitions run during the year by the Hertfordshire league and the East Junior League. We endeavour to run as many teams as required such that all juniors who attend regularly can participate in competitive competitions irrespective of ability. At the end of the season we enter one team per section to the Hertfordshire Country Championships.

Juniors over the age of 13 are also encouraged to train with, and play for, the senior teams when it is felt appropriate.

Each age group is led by a qualified coach under the guidance of our Head of Performance, with plenty of willing volunteers from the senior teams helping the coaches out at the training sessions.

Many of our members go on to be selected for the Herts Junior Development and Junior Academy training centres, with some playing representative hockey at higher levels. 

Further information can be found on the Junior Training page, however if your child is interested in playing hockey please contact our Junior Coordinator, Kevin Ellis for more details at harpendenhcjuniors@gmail.com. Everyone is welcome regardless of ability and we are happy for your child to attend up to three sessions to try it out before joining to ensure they are happy.
