Junior Hockey is our coaching scheme for youngsters - of both sexes - age range 6 to 16.
The Junior Hockey Group meets most Wednesday evenings during the Winter Season :
Our AUTUMN TERM starts on Wednesday the 7th September 2015 and ends on Wednesday 14th December (No session on half term Wednesday the 26th October).
Timings - from 6:00 – 7.00 pm open to players aged 6 - 16
and 'Development Squad' for players age 9 upwards continues 7:00 to 8:00 pm
Our WINTER TERM starts on Wednesday 4th January 2016 and ends on Wednesday the 5th of April  (No session on half term Wednesday the 15th February). There is additional Sunday training - 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. for the full age group 6 - 16. Winter Term starts 11th September 2015.
Friendly matches take place on a regular basis(once a month) between September and March and are played at home(St. Mary’s) or grounds in Derbyshire / Nottinghamshire. Matches start around 10.30 am and last an hour.
While there is a competitive element to these games winning is not the "be and end all". We aim to give anyone interested a chance to play – please let your coaches know of your interest.
In addition we are running "occasional" teams at U-10, U-12, and U-14 levels to participate in both friendly matches and tournaments.

Cost?
For participation in any 1 session per week = £25
For participation in any 2 sessions per week = £50
For participation in all 3 sessions per week = £60

We feel this still offers excellent value for money. If you consider the cost per session, it’s around £1 or less. We can take all the payments in September, or in two stages - in September and January. Please pay promptly. For cheques, please make payable to Chesterfield Hockey Club.
Any junior boys playing for the men’s teams on Saturdays and paying junior club membership, still need to pay training fees if they attend the session run by our club coach Ben Lamb, from 7:00-8:30 every Wednesday. This would be classed as one session as described above. Older girls of 13-15 are welcome to train with Staveley ladies from 7-8pm and they would need pay Staveley the required training fees separately.
Any juniors playing for men’s teams on Saturdays and also in junior games on Sundays, will need to pay the additional £10 for Sunday matches.

Notes for parents

Our club insurance covers the club for its accident liability and children are advised to have their own sports injury/personal accident insurance.
Please note that cancellations due to bad weather may occur, with no refunds given. There are also two or three Sundays per year when we have to host Notts/Derbys fixtures resulting in no training on those dates.
Due to child protection guidelines - no parents (unless invited) are allowed on the pitch. Children are invited onto the pitch at 6pm on Wednesdays. Until then they remain the responsibility of their parents.
We do need some help from parents, and are in the process of setting up a Parents Group to help organise things, so if anyone is interested please talk to John or myself.
Many thanks,
Paul Speed
