‘Jockey’ is back! Friday Night Junior Hockey returns on 14th August

Clydesdale & Clydesdale Western Hockey Club are delighted to announce the return of Friday Night Junior Hockey.

‘Jockey’ as its more commonly known at Clydesdale & Clydesdale Western is the club’s busiest junior training night for boys and girls starting from as young as 4 years old.

Abiding by Government, sportscotland and Scottish Hockey guidelines, restrictions that have already been set by the club will remain in place but we are able to offer junior hockey in groups of up to 10 kids in each quarter pitch.

If you are interested in signing your child(ren) up for the 2020-21 ‘Jockey’ programme, there are TWO steps that need to be completed:

  1. Parents/Guardians – including those who signed up last season – must have a Junior Hockey membership account set up via the club’s membership system, ClubBuzz. For previous members of last season, you will have received an email from the club regarding membership renewal. Your account will still be available to use but you will need to enter your username and password to gain access. Information on the renewal process for ClubBuzz can be found here.
  2. To have an accurate list of Friday Night Junior Hockey members, we also will need Parents/Guardians to complete a Friday Night Junior Hockey form.

For Parents/Guardians on the night of Junior Hockey sessions – the Beer Garden and Clubhouse Bar is now open and the club would be delighted to see you. But with guidelines still in place, a Pre-Booking form is required to be completed, as to is a Terms & Conditions form. This is simply for track and trace purposes. Failure to complete both of these forms will mean that the Bar Staff will refuse you (and any potential party) entry to the Clubhouse and Beer Garden.

A list of dates and sessions splits are listed below:

5.00-6.00pm: Up to Primary 4
6.00-7.00pm: P5 and P6
7.00-8.00pm: P7 and S1
8.00-9.00pm: S2 and above
