What session should I register for?

There are sessions to cover all abilities from beginners to intermediate and more advanced players.  The sessions are run by experienced and qualified coaches and emphasis is placed on enjoyment and participation


Age Group

Up to P4: Friday or Thursday
P5-P6: Friday or Wednesday or Thursday
P7-S1: Friday or Wednesday
S2-S6: Monday (girls) or Tuesday (boys) or Friday or Senior training.

For beginners and younger players, the Friday or Wednesday session or the indoor session on Thursday evenings at Shawlands Academy are appropriate.  For players who have been playing for a few years the Friday and Wednesday are still appropriate.  The coach will divide the session in groups and provide an appropriate programme to all.  Players who are a little older and starting to play competitive hockey should consider Monday and Tuesday sessions.  The Monday session is for girls who are preparing to play competitive hockey and will most likely be in S1+ or older.  There is a similar session for the boys on a Tuesday.  These sessions are stepping stones to full senior training.


Friday

Friday caters for a wide range of standards.  It is the club’s main junior training night.  If you are a beginner, this is where to start. T he later sessions contain more experienced players and the emphasis is on participation and enjoyment while developing key hockey skills.  There are four one hour sessions covering different age groups.

   
5.00-6.00pm: Up to Primary 4

These sessions will start on Friday 31st August.


Wednesday

For those that can’t manage Friday sessions, the club also offers a session on Wednesday at Titwood from 6.30pm-7.30pm.  This session is split into different groups to cover all age groups and delivers the same level of training as the Friday sessions.  It is suitable for beginners.


Thursday

The Club runs indoor “pay as you go” sessions at Shawlands Academy from 5.30pm-7.30pm. These run throughout the year during school term time.

Tuesday – Boys

The boys session on Tuesday is designed to be at a higher intensity level and aimed at skills development.


Sunday Mornings
