Clydesdale and Clydesdale Western Hockey Club are delighted to announce the 2019-20 programme of hockey that is available for juniors.

Friday night – Junior Hockey – “Jockey” – 5.00pm-9.00pm

The club’s main junior coaching night. Friday night Junior Hockey sessions, or “Jockey” as it’s more affectionately known as, caters for boys and girls for all abilities. There are four one hour sessions, and as the hours go on, the older the age group gets. “Jockey” will start back on Friday 23rd August. For more information on dates please click here.

Sunday morning – Junior Hockey Festivals – Variable times

If such interest from Friday night is generated with your child(ren), you can also sign them up to participate for Clydesdale & Clydesdale Western at Junior Hockey Festivals on Sunday mornings. Festivals are held at clubs around the Glasgow/West region, and take place every four weeks between U10s & U14s to U8s & U12s. For information on when each festival is, where it will be held, please click here.

Thursday night – Indoor @ Shawlands Academy – 5.30pm-7.30pm

The club also holds a “satellite club” indoor session, which is held at the sports hall at Shawlands Academy. The session is ran weekly by club veteran Ali Bleach and is a “pay as you go” class. With it being “pay as you go”, there is no requirement for sign up, but each class costs £3.00 per child. The session consists of two hourly classes, starting from 5.30pm. Indoor @ Shawlands Academy will begin on Thursday 22nd August. For more information about the session, please click here.

Tuesday night – Boys Performance – 5.00pm-6.15pm

Every Tuesday night, the club hosts a Boys Performance session which is led by club coach, Ciaran Crawford. The sessions are designed for a higher intensity level and aimed at skill development and game understanding. To attend this class, boys need to be 10 years old or above. They are welcome to attend the first session as “taster” before registering. The first Boys Performance session will be Tuesday 27th August.

Ladies club training is held every Monday night, from 6.30pm, with the first session beginning on Monday 19th August. To attend this session, girls need to be in S1 and above. If available and interested, your child(ren) may be asked to represent one of Clydesdale Western six teams that play regular league fixtures, usually on Saturday’s. The club will also be hosting a ‘Trial Day’ for all females S1 and above. This is to determine which player is eligible to play for specific teams at Clydesdale Western based around their ability and their availability. The ‘Trial Day’ will be on Sunday 25th August from 2.00pm – 5.00pm. For more information about this session, please click here.
